    I've taken the SAT twice and was wondering if I should include both on my application, or just the highest score? Thanks.

    Pretty sure ROTC superscores (not 100% on this tho), so I'd put both, only if you did better at one section on the previous test. For example, you get like a 710 on math on the first one, but get a 700 the second but also improve your reading score like 30 points. I took it twice but got a worse score the second time in both sections (don't even ask, I have no idea) so I'm just putting my best one.

    It depends on the ROTC program.
    Navy - superscores
    Navy Marine Option - no superscore. Only scores from most recent test used.
    Army - (I think they superscore)
    Air Force - (I think they take best sitting... ie best composite score for SAT)

    In any case the program will figure it out (unless you're applying Marine Option)

    You will need to have the testing people send 'official' results, anyway.

    I would list your best score, superscore. The scores you put down are unofficial and without any specific guidance, use your best scores. The program will get your official scores and use the scores they want.
