Right now I'm in the midst of entering my 2nd semester as a high school junior. Would now be the time to start calling/paying a visit to my congressional representatives in terms of getting a jump start to applying for a nomination? Only problem is I am not happy with my current SAT scores, and am in the process of getting a date to retake them. In the mach applications I have been filling all my info onto (so that it's a matter of just reissuing the information, instead of thinking for hours upon it!) there was indeed a space for SAT scores. Should I wait until I retake to apply for nomination? I know it's a very competitive basis and I would not want to be counted out because I waited a while (retaking in March, scores probably by the following month) and I also, based on the rolling admission, want my application completed ASAP. But I would rather my new scores be on the application to give me more of an edge.
