<p>If I dont get in I won't be too mad since I got into MIT early action:) and my princeton interview went well</p>

<p>what the freak, dude, i already pwned you in the Princeton forum. way to change your excuses for the 50th time. give it up.</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a>
^changed his scores and excuses from there...</p>

<p>Here's what to do: take the point about your grandma and WRITE about it. Otherwise, the eyebrows are going to shoot up on the faces of the Ivy League admissions officers at your F in Algebra I and Spanish.</p>

<p>But hey, congrats on getting in to MIT early!</p>

<p>And all your other stuff is great.</p>

*I see.</p>

How is your GPA still that high?</p>

<p>Sauske40, you are a troll. DNFTT.</p>

<p>newjack: in the other post, he claimed he was an MIT freshman trying to gain transfer admission to Pricneton (which...doesn't exist). also, he posted AP scores for his senior year, which he now claims he hasn't taken.</p>

<p>bbye, troll.</p>

haha, good eye. OP why would you go through all of the trouble of creating a "resume"?</p>

<p>3.98 UW GPA with 2 F's and 4 C's? Is that out of four? or ten? </p>

<p>How did you go from algebra I as a freshman to AP Calc AB as a junior? What happened to algebra II, geometry, and pre-calc/trig?</p>

<p>You have to be the first Merit Scholar and MIT admit to fail Algebra I; but at least you got an A in Phys. Ed!!!</p>

<p>I took geometry in the summer of my sophomore year</p>

<p>This thread needs to be closed. This is clearly a troll.</p>

<p>I will send off the recommendation for the closure.</p>

<p>u got into MIT already so im sure u have a shot at the less popular ives (not HYP) ... try dartmouth.</p>
