I don't know where else to post this -- and I am having trouble getting info. in person. My son's 3rd attempt at the SAT - to improve math score -- verbal is fine -- his score went down! Very disappointing. Should we: Write to everyone (MOC's, academies, rotc reps) and say - I was disappointed to learn my SAT score for math did not go up - but I am not giving up and am scheduled to take it again in Dec. (and then tutor, study, crazy til then -- football season will be over which allows more time too) of Take what we have in SAT and go take the ACT. See if he does better on that. I might as well say -- the SAT was LOW -- 510. He knows the math - he knows he can do it, but it just doesn't come out that way, and it has always been that way for standardized tests. He is a good student -- not 4.0 but close, 5 varsity letters, lots of leadership and comm. service -- has been working all his high school career for this. Should we talk to the BGO or the Admissions office at WP and just say - hey -- i am trying as hard as i can. I don't give up. Or should we go with what we have and let the chips fall where they may. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. We go to a small school and the tutor he used for the SAT prep when his score DID go up is unavailable now. I have no more money and very little time to figure out what to do and go in that direction. So Kaplan or one of those is out. I have math tutors for him, but I need to figure out if he should even try again. Or bag that and go check out the ACT book from the library. My son does not know about this - he has a game today and I thought if I could gather some info we could all sit and figure out what he wants to do tomorrow -- no sense getting him upset before an away game when he can't do anything anyway.
