    I meant that you should have done better on the SAT English portion since English is your current school's primary language. Although above the minimum of 550 accepted by your current target schools, a 570 is too close to the minimum acceptable score when applying for a few highly competitive openings.

    As an Andover mom, I do think it helps that your brother goes to Harvard, if you can casually mention it during interview.

    Yes, I know that 570 is a horrible score. I made the mistake of not preparing at all for math and English. In fact my friend got 1530. I'm taking the test again in May, but this time I'll prepare. Unfortunately, there's no way to show that score in time :neutral: . I'm just hoping for the best and focusing on my essays!

    Congrats on being an Andover mom! It's great to hear that it might help :smiley:
