I think your standardized tests are somewhat low for an international requiring full aid. But you never know - good luck.

Well your SAT is a little low and your GPA not that impressive, but particularly Lafayette doesn’t seem to weigh the SAT so heavily + you are in their 50th percentile so it’s not that bad. On the other side, national/international awards more than make up for those low scores. I bet that if you rock the personal statement and the Why us essay you’ll get in. Good luck!

P.D.: If the national awards are from big or generally competitive countries, make SURE you mention it. Winning a national award from a tiny, Latin American country is not nearly as impressive as winning a national award from India or the UK.

The OP hasn’t been on CC since March 1. Closing thread.
