Chance me please :)

<p>Hello, I'm a hispanic male at a public high school in New Jersey.</p>

<p>I'm ranked 6 out of 694 kids.
GPA - 4.36 top 1%
SAT. Reading 620, Math 590, Writing 670 = 1880
SAT II - Math 1 620, Bio 800, Spanish w/ Listening 770
AP - AP Bio 4. Currently taking AP Chemistry, AP United States History, AP English, and AP Spanish Language
Taken - College level Physics course with Lab (5 credits), Intro to Engineering course (5 credits), and Public Speaking (5 credits)</p>

<p>Conducted Scientific research at St, Peter's College and Princeton University on Chemical and Biological Engineering</p>

<p>Extracurriculars:
National Honors Society-Vice president
Science League: Bio I and Bio II. Also Chem II
Science Club: all four year and Senior officer
English Honors Society Treasurer
Science, History, French honors societies
First Robotics Competition
Spanish Club</p>

<p>Recommendation letter:
1 from Head of Science Department at my school
1 from my Honors US II history and APUSH teacher
additional letters: letters from mentors from St. Peter's and Princeton</p>

<p>I'm not too sure on whether I should apply to school School of Arts and Sciences or Engineering. please helpppp. I would do Biomedical or Chemical Engineering if I go that path.</p>

<p>You probably know that your scores aren't stellar, but you have a very impressive involvement in the sciences. I can't say how much this will help, given your scores, but it will definitely make them give you a second look. Your hispanic background will be a hook. Your subject test scores aren't bad....but I'm not sure how they will respond to your taking the Spanish test. I'm assuming you're fluent in Spanish, so the officers might see that as a "lazy" tactic. Don't quote me on that, though, I really have no idea. Just a thought.</p>

<p>Good luck, I hope that helped a bit.</p>

<p>SAT score is low (at least, by Yale's standard). Nice GPA, though.</p>

<p>I would not send those additional recommendation letters. If I recall correctly, on the admissions website, Yale states that it does not prefer to have them, anyway, as they could "dilute" the effects of the two required letters.</p>

<p>As for which school to apply to, there's not enough information for me to help you on that. Also, you don't apply to any particular school at Yale. On the supplement, you simply choose the major you're most likely to pursue if you were to attend.</p>

<p>Oh, and you should decide whether or not to go into engineering soon, because, er, you have an additional essay to write if you feel that engineering is your calling . . . </p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>Do you think that my SAT score will most likely cause rejection?
And thank you, would sending abstracts be the same problem?
And well I really want to pursue engineering but I am not sure that my Math SAT score really supports that so I thought it would be better to apply for like a Biology or Chemistry major and then transfer to engineering. What do you think?</p>

<p>Your SAT I score is low for any of the Ivy League schools, so I'm not sure how Yale would take that. You will really need to up essays to even be considered for such a prestigious school. </p>

<p>As for your Bio/Chem vs Engineering debate, I think you should apply for bio just because your SAT II is great and your math, as you mentioned yourself, is very low considering the applicant pool.</p>

<p>Your SATI scores definitely surprise me because they're low for your other commitments, but go for it. The Bio scores definitely will give you a boost.</p>

<p>I think abstracts are okay, but please check Yale's website for confirmation. Don't count on my word. lol</p>
