Hi guys this is my first time posting a discussion on CC and I’m really frustrated right now…I’m really needing some help
I’m an International student from China (Chinese citizenship, goes to Chinese public school international division) who’s entering the application season. After checking my AP scores I found that I got 5s on Calc BC and English Lang, 4s on USH Phy2 and PhyC-Mechanics, and A 3 ON COMP SCI (UGH). In contrast I got either As or A-s in all my five APs at school and ended up with an unweighted GPA of 3.95/4.0, and I have a 2360 SAT (M800, R800, W760).
My list of schools in mind include most of the top-tier schools (Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, Columbia ,UChi, Duke and the list just goes on). I just wanted to know how the 3 is going to kill my chances at top-notch universities? Is there anything I can do to decrease the influence? And what is the correlation between common app’s self-reporting APs and CB’s sending score reports?
Thank you all so much in advance!
P.S. I have SAT II Math 800 and Physics 780 if that matters…
