@proudmama2 (I found the 2016 report)
Also a 3.4 unweighted GPA will keep her out of the Ivies, even with the 32.
@itsgettingreal17 It's not the test score; it's the GPA. Many URMs with much higher GPAs and similar test scores don't get in. I see it every year. A URM with a 32 isn't guaranteed a spot at an Ivy and has little chance without a top GPA. Come talk to the black and Hispanic kids in my D's competitive high school ranked in the top 10% (GPA > 4.2) with good test scores who didn't get into a single one.
