What are my chances at Bentley with crappy SAT scores
I got an even 1000 on the SAT. However, I have multiple activities, a high GPA (3.8) and won a few awards( not trying to brag only going down the Common App list). Now I've already received some of the preliminary packages of "brochures" and "thanks for applying we really enjoyed your donation of 75.00 in application fees", but I would like to mentally prepare myself before I stare my Asian Tiger mother in the eyes and face the wrath of her disappointment. As well as lock away my heart so it doesn't completely shatter when the university apologizes(as Bentley is my "dream university" as all kids say nowadays). I guess all I'm really asking is what exactly do they mean by "holistic review"? Does it mean there is a chance they will look past my SAT score and see the blood, sweat, and tears that I poured into my academic career? Or am I application number #XXXX-XXX who has a score of 1000 and thus is not applicable to the university?
As you can see by this ongoing rant I have been on a straight up caffeinate binge and using multiple tabs to status stalk all my universities. Not so patiently awaiting their decision.....
