before i begin-i don't wanna any comments that are not gonna help answer my question, and i am new at this blogging stuff so please e patient lol- i am a non traditional student, i didnt finish high school because my step father sent me back to my natal contry (ecuador) so when i came back i was already 18 and the school board suggested a GED, which i got a couple years later. i am 22 and will be 23 soon, i plan on completing most of my basic college courses (calc 1-3, physics, chem, bio) by fall or summer 2010, after that i wanna apply at MIT, i am fairly decent computer programmer, i like making small robots, i am good at math, i have to take the SAT but i wanna know what a decent score is, and if i should take the TOEFL isntead of the SAT and also take the math and science SAT II (i.e. if i get like a 1600-1800 because my english is not that off a born and raised kid here, will i suck?) i speak 3 languages, i play piano and guitar, and you gotta realize i been out of school for about 5 years, but i do a lot of studying and im finally getting back into the college scene. i'm not bad for a kid who had no support from his parents. i'm not bill gates but i sure am proud of my talent, i wanna do a computer engineering major.. i emailed MIT but idk if theyll answer and i cant find blogs that are helpful. so what do you guys think? should i try? i have a killer essay if that helps, i have been through hell but still wanna be an engineer, i'll appreciate your answers, thanks!
p.s. the reason i think of MIT is well first i love that school, second i wanan move up north i am in florida and wanna try a new life style and i love up north.
