I've had really bad science teachers, and scored a 540 in bio, 530 in physics, and 470 in chem < got lost going to test center, came in late and frazzled.
In us hist, math, and math II i scored each in the 600's. Basically the weakest part of my app. is SATII's, will they take the 2 highest, or will they judge me by the 470? Is it enough for a rejection if everything else is great?
idk if anyone really knows. My sat2s are pretty bad thats why im not sending them, but if you have a great app and then just bad sat2s i think they might not auto reject and maybe look past it depending on the grades you got in each class. Who knows though.
haha, saving the Dalai Lama from a stray bullet!?!
well, they're only recommended , so I couldn't see it being a devastating auto-reject...
the top two are 640 and 610 which are bad... but not AWFUL, and the science is a 540 and that's after only a month in the class! I believe they also take the Science portion of the ACT into consideration, and I scored a 32, which is around a 720 converted SAT.
"one kid got into cornell with a 20 ACT, so who knows..."
Is this kid any (combination) of the following?
-First generation college student
-Low income family
-International Olympiad competitor
-National/ international musician
plus other things I may have missed.
Idk about him... but I am URM- Hispanic, First generation, low-med. income, single parent, all-state musician, and uncompetetive major. So how does a 640 and 540 make me "very unlikely" ? They accept scores like that from caucasians! And yeah, my SATI scores do suck, I'll be the first to say it. But I tried the ACT, and that format worked better for me. A lot of people have wide ranging scores due to the different formats on each exam.
