You have a solid chance.

if you're ranked so high in math they'll expect much more impressive sat math scores than you currenly have(take math2c , it's easier). Otherwise your chances are really really really good, the only thing that'll hurt you is the rank.

I don't understand how you could rank 15th in the nation for precalculus. What competition was this?
|By Miamiman (Miamiman) on Sunday, September 14, 2003 - 01:23 am: Edit|
Mu Alpha Theta - look it up
it wasnt the overall Precalculus competition. but it was a segment of it which included a two man team answering particularly difficult pre-calc questions. however i had no partner so i took the test myself and still managed to place. only the top fifteen positions get recognized and such.
btw should i still retake that sat2 chem or go for the physics

go for physics, much better curve and plus u wont have to spend time on self-studying, ur in the class anyhow. Btw, how are you doing with the SATS?
|By Clickspring (Clickspring) on Sunday, September 14, 2003 - 03:47 am: Edit|
You should retake your Chem SAT II to score 750+
|By Miamiman (Miamiman) on Tuesday, September 16, 2003 - 12:06 am: Edit|
im going to take the SAT, i took a practice one in the Kaplan book and managed a scale of around 1350-1400(no exact score)
