desperate to get into any ivy league schools for engineering. Ive been in America for 1 and a half years and now a junior in a military school. I was really wondering if there would be any advantage i could have in the admissions process as an international. For someone who's been in America for 1 year, my scores are really good, and i wonder colleges might give credit for such a big improvement.
I took ESL (easy course desginated for internationals) in sophomore year, and moved to regular courses after six months. I got first in sophomore. And in junior year, i am still first in class with the average of 103.78, (and my brother is second with the average of 103.34) taking all honors classes, only one AP class though, Calc AB (our school offers only 5 APs).
5 on AP Calc BC
800 sat ii math ii c
800 sat ii physics
800 sat ii Korea
sat 650v 800m
Varsity Soccer 10 11 12
Varsity Track 10 11 12
Varsity indoor track 12
marching band 10
choir 11 12
Chess club 11 12
Korean Club 10 11 12 (president)
SAT club 11 12 (president)
Student government 12 (hopefully president)
i think the writing and verbal scores are pretty good as an international. Do u think they will take this factor into consideration? Please evaluate my chance,,so desperate!!!!!!!!

ALL of you schools are reaches...even with your awesome scores Yale, Harvard, UPENN,etc are lottey tickets. However, I think that you should be commended for your english skills with only one year in the US.
|By Jaeoo (Jaeoo) on Monday, January 26, 2004 - 09:11 am: Edit|
thanks wjk!!! for encouraging me,,do u have any messages posted on this board? I'll try my best to answer your question or rate your chance. thanks,,,,,i hope colleges too give me credit for big improvements,,,,,

I disagree with WJK.. i think you are pretty much in at UPENN, Columbia, Cornell, NYU, Duke, and Rice. The others, you never know

i think you should apply to some back-up schools that you might be willing to go to, just in case you're rejected. You're applying to some very competitive schools, keep that in mind. But overall, I think you have a solid chance, but nothing is guaranteed. (Although I would be surprised if NYU rejects you)

i agree with wjk..
without some stellar ECs or awards, you can forget harvard.
you have about a 30% shot at each of UPENN, Columbia, Cornell and Duke
and pretty much in a NYU and Rice

Do you have any safties or matches? The schools you listed are reaches for everyone, even for applicants with stellar stats like you and your brother. Pick out some schools that aren't a crap shot. What is your prospective major?
Also, you might want to consider retaking the SAT II Writing. You'll probably do better on it in the fall of your senior year just because you will have had more experience with English at that time.

thanks everyone!! Ill keep your advice in mind,,thank you very much,,,i dont think i can improve my writing score anymore though,,,,,,
thanks!! ill look for some other schools for safety ^^
im think of majoring in engineering in college and then going to law school to become a patent lawyer,,,what do u guys think?

you've been in the U.S. for a year in a half.. and you got a freakin 700 writing?
you must be uber-smart.
and yes Im jealous.
btw, im korean too.
|By Jaeoo (Jaeoo) on Wednesday, January 28, 2004 - 02:56 pm: Edit|
wow,, a lot of Koreans! nice to meet you ! hm,,i didnt get the information i origninally wanted to get. But, im content to get to know all of you,,
Can someone please tell me if there is any advantage only internationals can get over native American people,?
|By Wjk323 (Wjk323) on Wednesday, January 28, 2004 - 10:10 pm: Edit|
There are no advantages.

who goes to ivies for engineering? that's just weird. The schools you listed (sans MIT for sure) are good for discrete mathematics.
|By Jaeoo (Jaeoo) on Friday, January 30, 2004 - 06:32 pm: Edit|
no advantages,,,,,,alright,,,,that absolutely disappoints me and also spurrs me,,,thanks!! i didnt know ivies were bad for engineering students,,,,ill take that comment into account thanks!!
