Should I retake the SAT?

I got a 1520 (790 math, 730 English) my first time taking the SAT this year. Should I take it again next month to “super-score” my score or should I not take it again, because once you’re that high up I feel like the score is just up to chance/guessing, and taking the test once and submitting a score of 1520 looks better then taking it twice and submitting a score of 1520. Should I take the test again?

    I think you're done.  With 790 math / 640 English I got acceptance letters from Stanford, Caltech, UCLA.  This was some years back though.

    No. The likelihood of your getting a statistically significant increase in either score is basically zero.  There is a great chance that you'd actually score lower on all sections.

    Obviously not. Nobody likes a humble bragger.
