So, after talking with modestmelody on AIM, I'm almost sold on Brown. However, I just got my test scores back, and honestly, I'm not all that thrilled. I'm looking for a little bit of advice here.
ACT: 29 (personally the real deal was so much harder than any practice test I had taken, and a 28 in science, I thought I had nailed that, anyway)
SAT II Bio: 630 --> 660 (I put so much time into this, this is absurd, I might have this rescored cause if the chem works out in my favor)
SAT II Math II C: 720 (this I expected, due to time issues)
SAT II Chemistry: 680 (waiting on rescore of May one which I'm almost sure I did better on) --> 730
SAT II Math I: 680 (ran out of time back in Nov)
SAT: 720M, 700WR, 580CR (bubbling mistake)
How are my subject tests? What would you do for these? I have my AP tests as well. Could I make up for some of that there?
What should I do for the SAT and ACT? [Honestly, right now, I think I have a better chance at the SAT than I do at the ACT. The ACT was just to try it out, you know. I was planning on taking the SAT again anyway.] What score should I aim for to be in the running for those schools?
For some reason, I'm just not good at these tests.
[As for other things that may weigh out these things on my application, I have around 300 total volunteer hours between my mosque and the local hospital. I'm also interested in publications, even though I don't want to make a career out of that, so my extracurriculars are heavily focused around that. I've been editor of the school newspaper for two years, section head for my yearbook, i'm doing the index senior year for the yearbook, and i'm one of the editors of the yearbook as well. I'll probably have three rock-solid recommendations and I think I'm a good writer, so I think my essays will be good. My high school unweighted GPA is a 3.89/3.9. Weighted, it will probably be a 4.27. I've taken the toughest classes offered at school. I will be taking four more APs next year. My rank is somewhere in the top-15 students, that's top 4% or so.]
