Taking a gap year was my first thought. The first and foremost thing I would like to do during the gap year is to retake SAT and increase my score, because my low SAT should had been one of the biggest reasons I was rejected. Then I will focus on maintaining community service regarding human rights I used to do as the club leader and other ECs during HS periods.
I wonder if this is good idea, and maybe it's just that my obsession that hinders me from seeing my situation objectively. Could you please help me to make right decision?
