GRE Subject Test Consideration

I was thinking earlier about how to shine during the admissions process, despite my lack of research experience.  One way I could stand out is to take an optional GRE subject test.  Since cognitive science falls mostly under psychology, that would be the first one I would think of.  But then I want to create my cognitive architecture using dynamical methods, which would point out the mathematics subject test.  But then I want to actually program the cognitive architecture, which steers me toward the computer science subject test.

Allowing reality to step in, I don't have the right backgrounds for either the psychology or mathematics subject tests.  And I know I would have a difficult time with the computer science subject test, even with my major and Master's.  I think I'm going to hold those in reserve for now.
