I noticed that nobody had started one of these yet. I thought that now would be as good a time as any to start one :)

    I was wondering when this would turn up. I am also applying SCEA to Stanford!

    Pitabread78,

    Have you been posting on College p-rowler (it wouldn't let me post the word normally) as well? The person I've been seeing with a name similar to your username is interested in majoring in physics/astronomy.
    And of course dreams can come true :)

    me too (or three)!.. how much have you guys done for the application?
  • coffeeandteacoffeeandtea Registered User Posts: 417 Member
    I finished my common app essay (and the rest of the common app except for maybe one more draft of my activities essay), and I've done all of the profile questions on the Stanford supplement plus a draft of the intellectual vitality essay. Now that I'm saying it I'm realizing how much I've actually done.

    How about you?

    Dear 2017ers
    As a freshman it would be helpful to see your stats if possible.

    Thanks,
    Apollo

    I'm working on rewriting some of my common app essay right now. I'm about halfway through all the Stanford supplement essays. I still have a few of the profile questions left too. I also have to ask for recommendations from one more teacher and my counselor, still. I feel kind of behind, but hopefully I shouldn't have a problem finishing everything.
  • raqbauraqbau Registered User Posts: 218 Junior Member
    I already turned everything in, since i'm studying abroad i'm almost done with senior year so I was able to finish my apps earlier :D
  • seastonesseastones Registered User Posts: 5 New Member
    I've got most of my app done, and I've gotten started on the essays. I still need recommendations, too. So, yeah, I'm also a wee bit behind, Shockwave.

    Are any of you taking the October SAT? I can't believe it is so soon. I'm a little bit freaked out. I just wish I didn't have to think about it anymore and could focus on my essays.
  • SlicekickSlicekick Registered User Posts: 122 Junior Member
    I'm taking the October SAT for NMSF application purposes. I don't plan on submitting it though unless I get a 2400, because I got good scores on my ACT.
  • coffeeandteacoffeeandtea Registered User Posts: 417 Member
    Doesn't like to see all scores from both tests if you've taken both? I may be mistaken, I haven't done that much research on it seeing as I've only taken the SAT. I just thought I heard that somewhere.
  • JemDkylJemDkyl Registered User Posts: 112 Junior Member
    I'm taking the SAT in October, if I get below 2000 or so, do you think I should apply for RD instead? I think SAT is one of my only weak points in the application, not that I took the real exam so far, but I did a few pretests and they were around 1800. What should I do? :)
  • seastonesseastones Registered User Posts: 5 New Member
    I'm not taking the October SAT. I'm happy with my score on the ACT, and there aren't any testing sites for the SAT around here, anyway.

    JemDkyl,

    I think if your application is strong everywhere except for your SAT scores, then you should be alright for EA. Plus, you never know what you're going to get until you get your scores back. Just keep working on it :)

    Are internationals expected a lesser score on the English section of SAT than native speakers? I don't mean like a 200 difference or anything, but let's say 650 for international and 700 for a native speaker? Numbers are just random, I can't remember the percentile range for Stanford's SAT scores at the moment.
  • AKShockwaveAKShockwave Registered User Posts: 310 Member
    I think they'd definitely be more understanding of a low score in CR/W if English isn't your first language.
