really depends on where you're applying to. a state university would want you. an ivy league... tough, hard to say. how are your SAT II scores?

Colleges look at GPA/class rank also. If you have a strong GPA/rank, I think that helps to balance the SAT score at most colleges. Plus, a really strong essay that makes you stand out in a positive way certainly can't hurt. Anyway, a 1210 SAT is only considered "low" by highly competitive colleges. As Liera said, it all depends on where you're applying.

Honestly, everything I've read about the college admissions process makes it sound like a crap shoot...lol. So who really knows..........
