Applying to Ivies Class of 2013

<p>^How’d you find our your National Achievement status?</p>

<p>^ my counselor called me and two other students down and told us. she told us that we will find out whether or not we are semi-finalists in September</p>

<p>If you don’t mind me asking, what state are you from? And what did you score on the psat?</p>

<p>^ i don’t mind. i’m from NY and got a 199 on the psat</p>

<p>Am I the only one whose SAT is considerably lower than PSAT? My SAT is 13(0) lower than my PSAT lol</p>

<p>I’m from Delaware, and my score’s about the same as yours.</p>

<p>Kobe, my SAT is 200+ higher than my PSAT.</p>

<p>I think I just choked on SAT day lol. I guess I’ll retake in the fall before EA deadlines</p>

<p>I choked on my SAT subject tests yesterday ):
I should have gotten more rest</p>

<p>While Duke is my first choice, I’m probably going to apply to Penn and maybe Columbia if I get around to taking the subject tests.</p>

<p>lol i just realized this was in the African American students section. ah well. </p>

<p>@srjoaquin your ec’s are pretty impressive but for the Ivies make sure you work on those test scores.</p>

<p>hahahah thats funny! its okay you can be an honorary african american :)</p>

<p>I can’t believe college stuff is right around the corner. And I can’t believe that I’ve made it this far and even have the opportunity to think about getting into an Ivy lol. Good luck to everyone!</p>

<p>^ It’s soo nerve-wracking, Kobe.</p>

<p>Are you guys still in school? Today was my last day,.</p>

<p>Hey, c/o 2012 here. Just wanted to tell you guys not to stress too much if you don’t beat 2000 on SAT’s. I only took it twice and got 1820 and 1910. I admit I was a bit lazy in studying for my tests and my gpa and class grades may have saved me a bit. But the tests aren’t made for everyone and if your transcripts show that you are an awesome student, then they can sometimes make up for lower SAT’s. The ivies I got into are Columbia, Brown, and Dartmouth. So I think aim for the 90th percentile :)</p>

<p>I finished school 3 weeks ago lol</p>

<p>I’m new to the boards but I know I’m going to apply to Columbia and am heavily considering applying to Dartmouth.</p>

<p>@ Mrluggs today was my last day too! im soo happy for summer, what are your guys plans? and @zambia, that is really reasuring my SAT 2140, and was very stressed out because i thought i needed above 2200</p>

<p>@hellogoodbyeThis is gonna be a busy summer for me.
