  • Re: Should I go to an expensive out-of-state school, or go to a decent state school?

    Just to clear up a matter, I mentioned my parent's 401k to say that they have a secure retirement fund, not that they would empty it for me. Even I would not be that selfish to make them give me everything that they have worked for.

    Also, I have been doing more research on Rutgers, and it seems as if I can skip so much more filler courses here than at UCB. And as many of you have mentioned, the undergrad does not matter as much if you plan to go to a grad school.

    Also, my 9th grade unweighted gpa was a 3.6 (I was so careless), while my weighted gpa was apparently a 5.2. My tenth grade GPA will most likely be a 3.8, with the weighted being about a 5.4.
    My sat score will probably be around a 1500, as I have consistently scored above that on practice tests. But I have the whole summer to study, so I will still be aiming for a 1600.

    After reading all you guys' suggestions, I think that Rutgers is obviously the better choice, as it is drastically cheaper, I can skip more classes, and I would have a decent chance of getting into the Honors college. Thanks for all your help in this matter, even thought the choice should have been self-evident.
  • How many Ap courses does the average accepted stanford student take?

    So I'm a sophomore in high school, and by the end of high school, i will take 12 AP courses that are given to me by my high school. Assuming I miraculously get As in all of them, and i get at least 4 on all of the ap tests, will I meet up to the people accepted to Stanford's undergrad program? And how many ap courses does the average accepted stanford student take? Thanks for all the help
