I'm also a double legacy but i've heard that doesn't matter.
Actually it does but not much, especially if you are international and on the fence in terms of admission.
SAT: 1680 no prep (i've given up on to ACT now) |
ACT: WILL PREP this time, i'm shooting for 30+
Frankly, your SAT score is rather low!! The current 50%-tile SAT 1200-1350 (ACT 27-31) for Ohio State freshman class. Plus, this will be the 1st year of Common App for tOSU, overall application is expected to increase by around 25%, which translates into much challenging admission. So, my suggestion for you right now would be to take ACT as you alluded above, and aim for 28+ (as your current GPA is upward but overall average) to ensure your acceptance for 2012-2013.
