    I AM VERY FOND OF THE SOCIAL SCIENCES AND WOULD LIKE TO MAJOR IN THEM. I COME FROM A PREDOMINATELY LATINO COMMUNITY IN THE CENTRAL VALLEY IN CALIFORNIA WHERE MOST OF THE STUDENTS DROP OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL AND DO NOT ATTEND A FOUR YEAR UNIVERSITY. MY FUTURE ASPIRATION IS TO TARGET COMMUNITIES SUCH AS MINE, AND HELP MORE AND MORE STUDENTS BE AWARE OF COLLEGE AND THE BENEFITS OF LEARNING etc...

    Rejected with a 2370 and 4.0 uw right here

  • kknightkknight Posts: 113Registered User Junior Member
    Whatever it is, you must have been qualified. Besides the SAT, everything looks fine. Race is only a small part, the app must have stood out.

    Congratulations!
  • expatmeexpatme Posts: 314Registered User Junior Member
    Just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS!!
  • ActuarialDJActuarialDJ Posts: 421Registered User Member
    you guys sound bitter
    SATs are not a measure of how hard you work necessarily
    obviously Stanford felt he was not only qualified but a good fit for their school and 2012 class
    congrats!
  • ace009711ace009711 Posts: 192Registered User Junior Member
    hey, dont be too hard on the guy..i got rejected with a 2300+, but i think everyone who gets in deserves to. He was trying to give other people hope, and just saying this is AA is not fair to the OP at all..congrats!!
  • applesauceapplesauce Posts: 158Registered User Junior Member
    Thanks for posting the rest of your stats-- from the first post I was simply bitter, but now I understand better. Now I believe that you probably did deserve your spot. (That Spanish score was probably actually helpful, it just shows that you're not a good test taker, even in a language in which you are fluent). Congrats.
