I take it you didn't do amazing on the October SATs since you bumped up this thread. That being said, there is not point in asking that question. Apply and see what the decision is in a few months. All we can do is speculate. Yes, there have been African Americans who have gotten in with 1850's and yes there have been many who have gotten in with less. And YES there have been some who have had much higher than 1800 and have gotten rejected. All you can do is, again, apply and wait it out.
