By NC on Thursday, January 23, 2003 - 03:08 pm: Edit

Will having an 800 in sat II writing give me an edge in some of the ivy's? A lot of people seem to be able to get a perfect score in the maths and sciences, but i only have 710 math I and 720 bio. Does anyone know whether colleges will be impressed by this or is it not really a big deal to them?

I scored a 760 Writing(71 MCQ, 77 Writing sample) So, you think you're better than me, do you? DO YOU? No, no, you are not better than me... just because you filled in 3 -- yes that's right -- three more correct MCQ's than I did does not make you a better applicant that I AM !!! DAMMIT !!! 3 questions !!!!! 3 questions !!!! what the hell !!!!

joking.... yea it looks good, specially if it's backed-up by a good verbal score. Cummon man, you didn't need to come to a message board to find that out!!!!

I'm still proud of my 760, and you're not better than me!!! Or shall I say, in a very SAT II writing MCQ way, "you're not better than I AM" !!!

no it's not a big deal...who would accept an applicant just because of an 800 in writing??? focus on other strengths

ha, 760? That would be so nice. I personally think I got screwed on my essay. (72 mc, 48 essay) = 650 :-/

You know something?

The first time I took the SAT II Writing, I got a 670. Because I had no idea that they would ask me to write an essay. I got 800 on MC and 430 on the writing. I also got an 800 on my SAT 1 Verbal. I hate the SAT's.

i got an 790 writing, 730 us history and 640 (yes 640!) math iic (which was a pain in the @$$) and i'm now a freshman at yale-- great job on the writing, wish i had gotten 1 more q right to get that 800 too - writing is the most important of the SAT II's though the only ivy that admits this is cornell

I got a 78 on my PSAT writing with no prep. HAHAHAHA! ( But I got a 63 math.)

yeah, obviously an 800 writing score is an edge (no, really?), but how much?

thing is, i have an 800 writing sat2 and my others are lower (low 700s and high 600s). i always see 800 math scores and stuff though, but rarely 800 writing scores.

is this just a little edge, or a really big, important edge for an ivy? i hear writing is the most important (and hardest to do well on for most people)...

Really? I always thought Writing was supposed to be easier. Almost everyone I know who's taken it has gotten the 800, The few exceptions were all 750+. I myself have always been better in maths than English at school, but when I took the November SAT II's, I got an 800 in Writing without prepping and a 770 in IIC (don't be deceived; it's 83%) with a week of prep. =(
