Some students are still worried about submitting too many test scores.
They're afraid that Syracuse University will look down on too many attempts to raise your score. From our research and talking to admissions officers, we've learned that 4-6 tests is a safe number to submit.

Each school has different requirements for standardized testing.
The college understands that you want to have the best chance of admission, and retaking the test is a good way to do this.
Within a reasonable number of tests, they honestly don't care how many times you've taken it. If you take it more than 6 times, colleges start wondering why you're not improving with each test.
The school expects you to meet their requirements for GPA and SAT/ACT scores, but they're more flexible than other schools.
Many schools specify a minimum GPA requirement, but this is often just the bare minimum to submit an application without immediately getting rejected.
They'll question your study skills and ability to improve.
