I recently received my SAT scores (the 2400-scale SAT, not the new 1600 point one) and was both disappointed and relieved. I achieved a high score in reading, a somewhat decent score in writing, and a relatively poor score in math.

While practicing for the SATs, I neglected the math sections, thinking they would be easy. Nevertheless, on the test, I answered four questions wrongly, and my mistakes costed me 110 points!

Given that I would like to major in engineering, having a high SAT math score is crucial. Since I would prefer not to complete the new SATs, I was wondering if achieving a higher score in SAT math II compensate for my lower SAT math score? Also, do colleges tend to overlook SAT math scores if SAT math II scores are higher?
