So my friend wants to get into UPitt but she pretty much bombed her sats. She got a 990 and isn't going to retake.
She has a 4.0 and a few decent ECs (no sports), is third in her class of about 60, and will get a good rec from an established Pitt alumnus. Is she in with these stats?

defintley needs to raise to the SAT. Pitt's becoming more selective each year. I know kids who had good grades in academic classes couldnt get in. They asked for 1100 SATs. The person I know didn't have a 4.0 or that rank but all she needs to do is bring up the SAT. There admissions process is more personal than say Penn State, but if you got the grades and SATs its easy but if you are more borderline they may go to a rec or ECs.
