Let's go... I got 1400...
35 on act
where u tryna go to college
I'm going into 10th... prob something like Cornell or Berkley
u took sat in 9th grade? u sure its not psat?
also u need more than a 1400 for berk / cornell
not nessessarily, my brother got into berkely and he got a 1350, he didnt get in for sports either, alot of it is just luck and how you put together your application
Are you in state? Also what ethnicity are you? That's p surprising just for numbers
A 1350 into UCB is extremely....lucky I guess? Considering the average SAT score over there, you would need at least a 1450+ with a 3.8+ gpa and good ec's.
My sis got a 1490 or smth. I haven't taken the sat yet. My school district is apparently smart which is shown by my superior takes.
Yet you didn't know where dark mode was.....
Well big rip for future me when I take the SAT and get a shitty score. Apparently my brother and sister both got perfect scores on the bio sat or smth so big sadge.
I’m aiming for 1500+ But 1450 or higher is fine for me
where do u wanna go ill give out free college advice. 1520+ is ideal for top schools
No clue about my college or career don’t even have a field in mind yet lol
if u get a 1520+ u have a shot at any school in world (assuming good grades as well)
Would not go to a Ivy League even if I got in seems way too hard for no benefit besides the name
I only got a 1380 :((
I’m going to the military after high school tho so idrc about my score
I got a 1470, honestly not too bad after a day of studying. 790 math, 680 reading.
idk what that is, but sounds like a horrible system. just make proper education system dumbos
EU education = my local landfill
I hate to say it mens but finland’s education system absolutely dumpsters ours
I mean our top schools> Finlands but the average school in Finland is prob better than our average
lmao thats why we have the best colleges in the world by far
A few private colleges aren't everything
Their public schools are far superior to ours
what? wdym a 'few private colleges', the USA literally has the BEST universities in tthe world, and BY FAR. the USA produces the most successful technologies AND PEOPLE, in the world, it has the MOST top tier universities in the world. Public education/ public schools dont mean shit, kids all learn the same basic knowledge. The education that makes or breaks your future and your career is post-secondary, and that is where the USA is the best compared to every nation in the world. Finlands education is ass compared to the USA when we talk about the education that MATTERS. We still have millions of successful people in the usa going to top tier universities every year so clearly you're overestimating the value of public schools.
You realize that theres a reason why the Usa is the #1 country for immigrants across the world coming to get a better education right? Its because the opportunities in the post-secondary education are infinitely better
1570 and a gpa of over 3.8 and I got waitlisted on UCLA kekw
Was that a weighted GPA? My unweighted is 4.0 and weighted is 4.15 cuz I only took 3 weighted classes
i was 3.99 gang rip
I havent really looked into sat and psat but how much do you need to get into stanford
1500+ if u have decent EXTRA circulars and some awards
spanish, link crew, all ive done
I mean it depends on what you are going for... for example I'm planning on doing engineering so I have science Olympian, science research, math research and 2 sports rn... I'm hoping I can add awards
the sat was so ez for Okin he got a 980
Lmfaoo I made the USAPHO physics camp which is top 20 in the US for Physics. I think I can get into MIT. I had a 1560 SAT and a 36 ACT. I obv have other ecs like Robotics, FBLA Office, etc but the USAPHO camp is easily my best award.
you have a good shot. didn't apply but had similar stats + 4.00 + good subject/essays/APs/ECs and got into a couple of HYP
Tbh, Ivy League doesn't appeal me much as MIT, Caltech, Stanford, etc. because Im going into engineering. My essays are gonna be ass tho but Im hoping my USAPhO camp, FRC Autonomous Award, and being FBLA Vice Pres carries me. Writing has always been my weak point.
Sheesh... mine will probably be regeneron semifinals/finals and maybe the Intel competition that happens every year... but science research let's me enter into tons of competitions and I started my research on the effect turmeric on inflammation (this has already been done but my mentor thinks it's a good way to start off)
Nice. What topic do you think you are actually gonna do after the turmeric one. Im assuming its still gonna have to do something with Medicine or are you switching to Engineering.
are u both indian/asian also
You have a good base but stay humble: you're not yet at the point where there are any guarantees; especially for a school as competitive as MIT.
Across USAPHO, USAMO, USACO, USNCO the set of "top 20" quickly becomes larger than the admitted class, so there is still significant competition, especially when you consider that a) they balance diversity in background and b) USAMO/USACO have higher weighting for many programs.
Further, for top schools there are many international applicants, with both top 5 placements on their national version of these contests, as well as top placements on the international versions, e.g. IOI, IMO, IPhO etc.
Source: Had top placements in olympiads, went to a school in this category, now make >$1m/yr
I forgot to put that I am USACO Plat too. But yeah no guarantees to MIT like I said I THINK i can get in. Since Im in state for GT its pretty much a guarantee so my worst case scenario is pretty good.
collegeboard is cringe the sat scaling is cringe act is easy support the act
Lol im Canadian so idc wth that is
I got 332 in GRE.
What the fuck is this simple ass test difficulty? If you ain't spending 16 hours a day reading for 3 years then the test isn't worth shit.
