The GOOD news is that many universities, like NYU are amending their testing policies to allow student who don't present their best selves on standardized tests, a menu of options to choose, http://www.nyu.edu/admissions/undergraduate-admissions/apply/freshmen-applicants/instructions/standardized-tests.html
Middlebury is also "test flexible", http://www.middlebury.edu/admissions/start/requirements
And then for students who don't test well at all, there are a wealth of GREAT colleges that are "test optional" and do not require standardized tests as part of admissions, http://fairtest.org/university/optional
Best of luck!
