How do you score lower on Math IC?
You're obviously very bright and have a shot at all of these schools but what's the point of asking us when you've already sent in all of your apps. (Don't worry about the 620 writing your 780 verbal SATI score makes up for it)

does it work vice versa as well? does an 800 writing make up for a 660 verbal?

(sorry for posing a question in ur thread beero)

actually the grading on IC is tougher than IIC because so many people do well (the curve is crazy) I think if you miss one question your score automatically drops to a 760ish or something like that. Conversely on the IIC you can miss one question and still have an 800. If you miss 2 you have like a 780. So it might have been stupid mistakes but I'm guessing it was probably the curve. I got this info. from a review book I bought (PR: SATII Math IC and IIC)

You can skip up to 6 on the 2C and maintain an 800.

It also depends on when you took your test - I think - because the curve is different for each group.

You have a good chance anywhere. For schools like Harvard, Yale, etc.--can't say for sure. Chances of gaining admission to those schools are usually never 100%.
