    Hey guys

    I'm not applying to colleges this year (already done that). So, I'm a freshman (at Amherst College). I'll be happy to answer whatever questions you may have as best I can (and more importantly, as often as I can).

    I know how hectic this period can be especially for international students. So, shoot!

    M2:660
    BIO:610
    The schools u applied to are nice.I am sure u have a chance of getting into them.
  • maddy_01maddy_01 Posts: 873Registered User Member
    if you see other people's stats on this site....you would want to die....like they all have some amazing scores here.

    Besides for PRinceton, you'll need three of those SAT2s, did u try re-taking the SAT2s?
  • OlascoOlasco Posts: 191Registered User Junior Member
    I can't because I do not have much time.My bro in Georgetown told me it won't really matter if my other application materials were very good.I also have a problem with some schools which are requesting my waec.But i am re taking SAT1 in jan.
  • maddy_01maddy_01 Posts: 873Registered User Member
    well this is a longshot but i think I know your brother....lol

    Did he get like 20something in his SATs and he got a mad scholarships from one of the schools he applied to....they like offered him return ticket every year or something....?? just a question though...

    Anyways, yeah about the WAEC issue, your school is meant to send a form showing predicted results of the WAEC exam to the schools. Do u knoe the form I am talking about?

    My advice would have been to retake the SAT2s as your SAT1 is ok.... What is you gpa so far in school? (the high school transcript is actually the most important factor for most schools so your brother is right)....and then your extra-curricular achievements. You know we dont care much about these in naija, but apparently, US schools care.
  • OlascoOlasco Posts: 191Registered User Junior Member
    Yup all the info u said about my bro is corect.How did u know him.Anyway I wil try to retake my SAT 2
