SAT & College Question?

If I applied to colleges that didn't require an SAT score but I took the SATs anyways would they put the SAT score into consideration? Thanks in advance!

    If you send the score, the admissions staff will probably include it in their decision-making process.  Each school is different, but generally, the admissions staff looks and everything in the "file" including test scores and letters of recommendation.

    So, if your score is higher than would be expected given your GPA, send the score.  If it is lower than would be expected, don't.

    Depends on what your SAT score was. If its considered high/advanced, then they might view that as "extra points" in your application to their college. If the score was just average, they'll probably just disregard it in your application.
