The SAT II writing score is LOW for an IVY. Try to get that up if you have time to take the test again. You interned with Tom DeLay??!!! That guy is a dickhead. Everything else is great and you'll get in because you're Cuban.

Oops,Let me add a detail I forgot to clarify cause that reference was vague. I didn't intern with Tom Delay, I interned with the leader of the state house, I'm from Fl.

Advice: don't send them your SAT II writing score....

I didn't and sent in Maths IIc/Physics/Chem and got into Yale ED... it can only hurt

The rest sounds great!, good luck with the lottery!

Austin - I was under the impression that the elite universities want Writing as 1 of the SAT IIs. Not Yale, then?

Nope... I was relieved to see of the 6 i was applying to HYPSMC, only MIT and Caltech required Writing as one of the SAT IIs...

Harvard, Yale, Princeton and Stanford and doubtless others I haven't checked up on, don't require Writing though they do probably prefer it.
