What if you think you scored 160-165 but you practice in 167-170 and want a score around 170?
Still cancel? Or just take it and hope you got a few lucky guesses?
Yes, still cancel. You probably did worse than you think and besides, there is no school worth paying for at 160-165 absent an extremely high GPA and it is not a high enough score for a full ride to your state flagship.
Well I'm retaking either way.
The only reason I would like to have the score is even though I did bomb one section, I think I did fairly well on all the other sections.
Also I would like to see what score I got.
And does having a lower score HURT for schools that say they don't average or look at both?
If a school explicitly says that the look at the highest score, it won't hurt you except if you are virtually identical to some other candidate. However, most schools either average, look at all scores, or look at all scores but put more weight on the highest.
