So I woke up frantically this morning and almost rolled my ankle running to check my SAT score haha. I felt like I had done really poorly due to a lack of preparation, but to my surprise I got a 2100. My score breakdown is:
Critical Reading- 710
Writing- 710 (Multiple choice- 68, 10 on the essay)
I'm pretty proud, but I was wondering if this is a good enough grade for my two dream schools Vanderbilt and UNC Chapel Hill. I know it's best to average 700s in each section, but I want to go to school for communications. Does this render my math score less important?
Apart from that I'm a junior and I have a 4.0 gpa, 98.3 to be exact and I'm ranked in the top 20 out of 500 or so students. My ECs are Newspaper editor, Student Council member, Beta Club, Science National Honors Society, Mu Alpha Theta, French National Honors Society, Literary Magazine, Media Committee, and a few others. Nothing too special.
Honestly I feel like my college application is only slightly above average at this point, and I'm really not sure if a 2100 does much to improve that. I just don't want to retake the test because I absolutely hated the process.
Anyways, what I'm really asking is all things considered, do you think I could get into Vanderbilt or UNC Chapel Hill with my SAT score/overall credentials?
