Hey guys. I was hoping to retake the SAT's in college in the hopes of improving my scores to make myself that much more competitive. I was told that if I raised the verbal score a bit higher, I would be in a different competitive field, and I figured I could do that because it's been about a year since I've taken the SAT's. At this point, I figured my mind would have matured enough so that I would be able to do much better. So I get the scores back, and the only thing that improved was writing, which went up 10 points... Does this make me look any more competitive? Writing's not even something most colleges look at, is it?
