Asian Parents (and Students) Unite to Post Results! (Any year is fine)

epan1997epan1997 66 replies5 discussionsRegistered User Posts: 71 Junior Member
I'm not sure if any Asian parents use college confidential (sorry if I'm being racist, but my parents aren't very resourceful) but I just wanted to make a post dedicated to the College results (accepted, denied, waitlisted, etc.) of Asian American students. If you are an Asian American student, please feel free to post your own college results

I'm an Asian American myself and I would like a realistic view for me and other Asians to have of what colleges we can get into. If they got into engineering schools, even better (that's my intended major). Please give a brief description of their/your extra-curriculars, standardized test scores, GPA, high school courseload, and any other accomplishments. Indians are welcome, but please no international students (Sorry, I know how much harder it is for you to get in).
Thanks you for your help!

    Epan...why is this important information? The only thing that really matters is YOUR stats relative to the college to which you plan to apply.

    Hey, if we can have results threads for all college students, why can't we have one specifically for Asian Americans? In actuality, I want a thread that will benefit others, not just myself.

    Why do you think this will benefit anyone?

    I'm not being snarky. I'm serious. Your application for admission isn't going to be sorted into,the "Asian" pile. It will be reviewed right along with all of the other U.S citizens who apply.

    (Grabbing some popcorn.) Well, this could be interesting.

    epan: You do realize that every year, thousands of Asians are accepted to the Ivies + MIT + Stanford + lots of other highly ranked, highly regarded universities?

    and, channeling the poster Mini, do you want to know what type of Asian? Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, etc., etc.

    Then I will ask you to please get off this thread. My opinion on why this thread will benefit others does not matter and you are not doing anything that will benefit this thread. Please, if others find it worthwhile to post here, great. If no one does, then you may be right, but I do not see any way you could possibly benefit or benefit from this thread @thumper1‌

    I would strongly suggest that you check Naviance from your high school, if they have it. This will give you a much better sense if what kinds of stats have gotten students accepted from your school to specific colleges. It might also give you valuable information with regards to targeting colleges for your own applications.

    @fireandrain yea, but I am not of that caliber. I just want a thread where Asian Americans can compare the accomplishments and stats of others with their own.

    and I guess it some people might want to know the type of Asian, so feel free to post that if you don't mind (or anything else that may help)

    @thumper1 I go to a young, magnet high school where there are only 50-70 students per grade and I do not think that the naviance page has been updated for quite some time now (there are only one or two points for most schools). Please, if you do not have anything to contribute to this thread specifically, do not post.

    You wrote "any year" and are asking in the parents' forum... the parents here who went to college may have entered college in the 1980s or 1990s, so do you think that their college admission results would have any relevance to your upcoming applications?

    OP, This kind of thread tends to never end well, per "CC wisdom."

    What is the point? OP you'd be better served figuring out where you are applying and ask on those specific forums or on College Life or one of the student forums if it's important to you to be around people that look like you or to be somewhere where you are unique in your appearance but that probably doesn't have much to do with GPA and test scores and more to do with region of country is my guess.
