Man, it's a shame you scored below a seven-hundred on the Verbal part of the SAT I. But I don't think colleges care whether your score is a 1490 or 1500. Anyway, those are nice stats, but many kids in this country have nice stats... So, I guess it's going to come down to how good your essays are.

Good Luck

Yea.. i know i wanted to break a 700 verbal
but i couldn't..damn..

Despite the scores, I don't think the fact that you are Korean will help you get in... but other than that, Good luck!

competitive, verbal is fine for one who only lived in the states for less than 4 years. There is a decent chance even for yale and princeton. 2 students from my school got similar stats who are TOTALLY americans got ED accepted to princeton.
