lol the fact that she's too lazy to put this stuff on herself says a lot...

Yeah that is exactly what I told her, thanks anyway.

Will anyone rate my friend even though she is lazy?

sat's need a boost. needs to clearly define who she is; she has done much stuff, but it seems as if she needs to focus on finding out what her passion/true talent(s) is/are. colleges like to see a one or two / maybe three things that you have done in extreme depth. in general, talented girl, she should study sat stuff and apply. oh yeah, i'd play up the self taught language thing (possible creative essay topic?) and send in a tape of her music...if yale takes supplemental materials, i can't remember if i sent any in. she should be proud of her accomplishments and ready to knock out senior year.

post this in the parent section and add something about what your friend wants to study and what type of campus interests her urban, rural, suburban, public, lac... You'll get a more ideas.

She looks good to me. Try the SAT again.

i just dont see MIT fitting into all those other schools. does she know what she wants to do? i hope she doesn't want to major in liberal arts type major at MIT. actually your friends SAT fits into all of those colleges upper quartile of scores. the only school where her score does not is MIT, where it would be in the lower quartile.

one more thing. how did she get a 2 on an AP exam?
|By Scarletbluesky (Scarletbluesky) on Tuesday, August 10, 2004 - 05:06 pm: Edit|
Well thank you all for answering. I am the friend Jordana is speaking of. All of your advice has been very helpful, and to Hdotchar, I got a 2 on the U.S. hist. exam, mostly because I don't like history. The class sucked and I absolutly hated studing anything for it. I do regret not studing now, but hey geting and 2 and not studing at all isn't all that bad.
