I am an international student from Germany and applying to Yale and MIT. I have a really good "Abitur grade" and very good recommendation.
Can anyone tell me how american colleges weight foreign "Diplomas" like the Abitur and if they take into account that we are not that much used to the standardized tests? My SAT I is only a 680v / 670m. But I spent one year in the US as an exchange student and took the AP Calculus BC (5) and the AP English (4) tests. I mean that should show them that I know my math, right?...
Thanks for your help.
