I have taken SAT two times, and received lower score on the 2nd time. How does it affect my chances?

The answer is no. College admission officers are looking for reasons to admit candidates, they are not looking for reasons to deny candidates. SAT scores, while they play an important part in the evaluation process, can vary from sitting to sitting. College admission officers will always take the best score from each section ( mixing and matching). This gives the student the best profile with regard to their test score. Good luck as you apply to college.
