By Lt4xbball (Lt4xbball) on Saturday, November 15, 2003 - 11:19 pm: Edit

Here are my stats...I fluctuated a lot and I'm afraid of that

SAT - 720m 630v (april) 1350
SAT - 780m 630v (october) 1410
SAT - 710m 650v (november) 1360
Composite: 1430

SAT 2 Chem - 720
SAT 2 2C - 750 then 690
SAT 2 Writing - 620 then 660

AP Calculus AB - 5

Unweighted GPA 3.957...but my school has A+'s that count for 4.333...

I am applying to Yale (for humor), brown, cornell, u va, carnegie...got into my two safeties

Extras:
Have been a very active EMT for over a year

Very active in model UN and on the Secretariat for my school's own conference

Did a year long research on the effects of nitrite on white blood cells, and I was recognized by the Society for In Vitro Biolgists

And, a bunch of small activites like debate league judge for 4 years.

What are my chances?

Wow I have the same SAT score as you (your second sitting). You have good ecs, a good gpa, however I think your verbal and writing scores will definitley hurt your chances.

yea well...im not a native english speaker, but i definitely realize that it hurts my chances. I tried sooo hard to get higher in both, but it just wont happen =( ...i swear SATs r really BS though...oh and i plan on being a econ major so maybe that will lessen the severity of my writing/verbal scores?
