Georgetown?

Hi everyone!
I am new here and I am wondering if a 1510 on the SAT is a good enough score for Georgetown? Lots of ECs and my gpa is OK, but I do have my reasons for that and will explain to the admissions board. Thanks!

    Yes, a 1510 is a great score. You also need three SAT subject tests with scores preferably above 700s+. Write great essays and you could get accepted

    your GPA is really low for Georgetown, unless you have a hook, it's going to be tough. Also you should take that third subject test. You'll have to explain the gpa in the essay without sound like you're complaining so take responsibility for the GPA.

    Yeah i def will. I changed schools this year so thats a big reason my GPA is low.
