<p>Anyone know how influential the SAT writing score is for my application since I'm applying for business/applied mathematics?</p>

<p>I will chance back for all who chance me. Thank you for your help.</p>

<p>I'll say your chances are about 65%, which is good considering how competitive AEM is.</p>

<p>I'd say something closer to 90% because I'm in AEM and I haven't met anybody with a resume like that, but, considering your outstanding tech background, you may want to check out the CS program and go for an AEM minor</p>

<p>Brian98, im also in AEM and i can assure you that no one's chances are 90%.</p>

<p>OP, stats are fine, EC's are pretty good, and being an URM from NY helps A LOT. make sure you stress leadership and why AEM and business are for you.</p>

<p>did you apply ED?</p>

<p>It's not fair. You're stats are too darn good. You make future applicants such as myself jealous as heck.</p>

<p>are you aiming at HYPSM? you have good chances!</p>

<p>oh and cornell doesn't look at the writing score, and yours is fine</p>
