Can a high SAT make up for a 13% rank?

<p>My SAT CR+M is 1420. My rank is 13%. My trasncript is pretty good, but in my freshman year I got one bad grade and it messed me up. I am IBDC and National Merit Semi-Finalist, sent in four recommendations, and have decent essays and EC's. Can I get in?</p>

<p>You've always got a chance. I was 13% with lower test scores, and I got into the ChemE program</p>

<p>Definitely try to work this into one of your essays. Show how you made up the deficiency in that specific subject in your later coursework.</p>

<p>@surferbeach that's a bad idea</p>
