Crazy INUIT friend.

<p>i have a friend of mine who wants to go to MIT, Harvard, UVA for business. He's inuit, and thinks that this will help him get into any school he wants. His stats:</p>

<p>1050 SAT
420 Verbal
590 Math</p>

Hasnt taken them yet. Says he'll get 800s on all three (Math IC, Writing, Physics- hasnt taken physics class yet but says its natural to him)</p>

Young Democrats
Plays the entuas-(inuit instrument)
CT Folk Song Choir
Helps out at family business carving wooden figuirines (sold in Canada as authentic inuit art- pretty funny actually)</p>

<p>I feel bad for him. He's probably the most arrogant person Ive ever known, but he's also pretty funny in that foreigner kind of way. I tell him he's aiming too high, but he says that thanks to quotas, hes a shoe in anywhere he wants to go.</p>

<p>What are your opinions? If he sees that other people agree with me, maybe he'll take my advice and apply to some safeties. Thanks for the help!</p>

<p>He would probably be considered "native American" which WILL help his chances significantly...but won't overcome substantially weak scores or GPA at the top schools. He'd have to be a bit closer to the median. It may open doors in slightly less competitive schools, however.</p>

<p>Maybe you should suggest a few less difficult schools, just in case. Although he will be helped by his status as a Native American, it will not give him the boost he needs to make up for the scores.</p>

<p>Wish I could be of more help.</p>

<p>arent inuits considered gods in some countries?</p>

<p>I consider them eskimos.</p>

<p>If he is an Alaskan Eskimo he will receive a favorable factor as a Native American. If he is not a US resident, that is not the case. If he has a decent GPA and actually scores 800's on those SAT II's, he still has a chance. In any event, he still should apply to safeties; even if he had perfect scores all around, a 4.0 unweighted GPA, and his first and last name was God, he'd still have less than a 40% chance of being admitted to highly selective schools.</p>

<p>420 Verbal & 590 Math doesnt equal 1050... its 1010</p>

<p>haha, think i care?</p>

<p>You have no chance.</p>
