    Just want to say straight off, I am NOT sure about this and am no expert.
    That said, I think you should take the subject test that you will score best in, whether it's what your interested, or what you worked your butt off to learn. If you aren't going to score well or at least reasonably, then it doesn't matter what test it you take.
    Next, I would look into science and math tests. The academies all like to see those, although I have not researched USCGA specifics. If you are like me and aren't at your best in science and math, take a foreign language or whatever you are best at. Most important is a good score.
    Who cares about a 400 on math 1 subject test, vs. a 760 on French w/ listening? The French is obviously a better example of your skills.
