Waiting for college acceptance/rejection letters are killing me!
I got a mere 600 on the CR section of the SAT. However, would Dartmouth care if I have been in the US for only 7 years? (I seem to think not) Would they look at my other credentials other than just numbers?
I need to hear to the truth: so that I can either give up and over the whole Dartmouth thing, or I can keep on dreaming...
My heart is breaking every minute I have to wait... (haha ok melodramatic, I know)
Not trying to be harsh, but the median CR score for the '12's was 730. A quarter of the class had above 770. D will take 2% fewer applicants this year. What's the chance of an unhooked applicant with a 600?
If it makes you feel better, I was accepted into Dartmouth with a 530 in the CR section.. But I DO come from an underrepresented country and have good EC's and great rec letters. So if you come from a country that sends few applicants as well, or have any other similar hook, then don't give up so easily! Where are you from?
Are you a permanent resident of the United States? In that case, Dartmouth will not regard you as an international student and the standard will be less stringent. Obviously, a 600 is still not great but it gives you a better chance than if they evaluated you in the international student pile. Also - did you take the TOEFL?
