White male from greater boston area public school
Major: Econ but planning to double in Chinese Language and Literature.
Currently at a Penn State
HS GPA: 3.45 UW, 3.85 W
SAT: 1490
College GPA: 4.0
Credits: 29 after spring
ECs: Net Impact(sustainability in business club that does work all around campus). Global China Connection, and Philanthropic Fantasy Sports(just sort of a hobby, not related to major).
Rec: From my Chinese teacher, I am pretty sure it will be quite good
Essay: Writing about how the environment at BC will suit me and my goals much better than the large state school environment.

I think my chances are not great, let me know what you think. BC is a dream for me and I would love a chance to go there.

    I want to apply but my SAT score from high school was really bad. My grades right now are very well, I have a 3.91 GPA and lots of experiences. I'm taking the SAT March 14, one day before the application is due and scores are released March 27th. I just do not know if they will accept the score that late. Can anyone give me advice?

    Since BC does count SAT/ACT scores for transfers and the fact that yours was "really bad", a retake with a higher score can only help. But take a practice test at home under good test conditions -- or go to your public library when you can sit for four hours -- and see if you can earn the score comparable to incoming first years, i.e., ~1400.

    Good luck.

    I'm looking to try and transfer to BC, BU, or Northeastern. I had a 3.8 at a private high school and a 3.6 at a private college. I got a 31 on the ACT. What is the likelihood that I get into one of these schools?

    @student937

    BU is generally more accessible as a transfer than a freshman from my anecdotal perspective. This would be your best option realistically.
