    @Kashallover‌ @tang97‌ Damn, you guys are impressive and congratulations! I'm still waiting on all of my decisions though I've pretty much resigned myself to bad news already. Most likely gonna stay in India anyaay. :pensive:

    How many Ivies did you apply to? Three here. b-( It'd be a great idea to support each other on the 31st, eh?

    @TheRedBangle‌ Hey man, we should definitely support eachother on the morning of the 1st (less than two weeks :o) And I've applied to all eight Ivy League schools.

    Great! Any idea when exactly we'll be able to see the decisions in Indian Standard Time? Also applied to Stanford, so I'm considering waiting for that to come out a day later and opening all of them in one fell swoop :-?

    @‌ tenthgrader

    If you're not a high school senior yet, the best advice I would give you is relax. Don't obsess about stats and go reading through each and every forum trying to look for the magic formula that will get you admitted. Trust me, you'll only be adding to your stress.

    For top schools, score in above 2250 range in the SATs to have a good chance. Get decent subject scores in the higher 700s. Get involved in extracurriculars in your school. Show that you're involved in your community. Its great if you have a few awards or achievements under your belt as well. Even if you have all these things, top colleges might not take you. Even if you don't have all these things, there are still many great colleges that you can go to. So, most of all don't worry.

    The number one thing to understand is that college admissions are unpredictable. They don't reflect your worth as a student and neither should they dictate your life and activites as one.

    Don't go around this site trying to compare what you have to what other people have and trying to predict your outcome based on theirs. Everybody is different. There's no need to stress yourself too much.

    I personally think the most important part of the app is the essay. So instead of worrying yourself about your scores or stats or whatnot, spend time improving your writing skills, because let me assure you, you'll need them to sell yourself to college adcoms. A killer essay can do wonders for you.

    All the best to you :)

    (If you are a high school senior, and are asking for stats in order to judge the calibre of the competition, dude, take a chill pill)

    Thanks for finding out what I was too lazy to. XD

    Military time. The military. War. Doom. Our impending doom. Well, that got morbid fast.

    Sorry. This is just my way of coping haha :D

    Hey everyone had a query. Should I take the AP exams on my own even if the relevant courses are not provided at school?
    Thanks :)
