<p>bump.............</p>

<p>You need to up your SATs if you want a good chance. Try for a 1500+ if at all possible: I've heard that if you have 1500 or above, you're halfway in.</p>

<p>"I've heard that if you have 1500 or above, you're halfway in."</p>

<p>not true...1500 or above just means that you're set in the world of SATs</p>

<p>welll what are my chances? i know my SAT is my achielles heal... 1350 is still good, but is it not good enough for columbia? Everything else i have is great (in my opinion) 2 varsity sports, part time job at engineering firm, top 10 hardest course load at school (4.0 unweighted), 8science, 6 math classes.. even a physics class at the university of virginia....</p>
