is it worth it
This depends on your intentions and how much you value reading the original scripts.
Learning Latin vocabulary for SATs and romance language understanding is one thing, but learning translation (declensions, parts, conjugations, terminations etc) is a whole different beast and is far, far harder.
Latin fundamentally functions very differently than what we're used to, so if you're gonna try and learn it well enough to translate, you'll just have to be ready to actually try. A lot. It's not as simple as learning vocab. Translation and is a whole different skill/set of knowledge.
Anyway, so I'd say go for it. If it ends up not being worth it, oh no, you've spent time rounding out your pool of knowledge and are better off for it. If it turns out you like it, great! The pursuit of knowledge is always a valuable one, no matter how short or long term.
I say have at it OP. It's a cool language.
