if u have 3 good SAT II scores and 1 bad SAT II scores and if a college only considers ur highest scores in the SECTIONS (i guess this is referring to SAT I?) would they consider ur bad score (if u already sent ur bad score using the 4 free score reports)?

Couldn't you just elect to send specific Subject Test scores to the college? Admittedly, some schools require subject tests in specific categories (usually 1 Math and 1 Science).

Do you know of any schools this year that require 3 SAT II scores for admissions purposes?

I can't think of any well known ones - most require Bio or Chem and Math 1/2...

I can't think of any school that I applied to, heck any school that I even looked at, that required any SAT II's. And I looked at many high-ranked schools.

I suppose it's different for each school and area of study though.

Yeah I'm taking them tomorrow. I didn't do any prep- since I'm not a junior, I cant get the merit scholarship crap thingy anyway.
