Homeschooled student with good GPA but low SAT score?

<p>I recently took the December SAT and my scores aren't available yet but i'm not confident that I've done well.
I'm not good at standardized tests, specifically math sections and I won't have an opportunity to retake the test.
My GPA is 3.87, I have a lot of exracurriculars and work experience and I volunteer at a day centre with people with mental health problems. I want to study Pre-med and it would need to be in Boston or the surrounding area.
IF I have done badly, are my chances of going to a four year college over? I'm very worried that being a home-schooled and an international student without a great SAT score, will go against me even more.
Any help, advice or college recommendations are greatly appreciated.</p>

<p>At this point, you're going to have to wait to see what your scores are, then compare them to schools you like around you. Yes, many colleges do put more weight on SAT/ACT or other standardized test scores (SAT 2, AP) for homeschoolers.</p>

<p>If you didn't do as well as you'd like, you can always consider a gap year and get more extra curriculars in while taking a class or two at the local community college. Just don't take any pre-med requisite classes there (avoid Bio, Chem, etc). Take English and a math class. Retake the SAT and try the ACT after that class, then apply to 4 year schools - not as a transfer, but just with a gap year. If you work some during that year you can also save a little bit for college, but be certain to keep time into your extra curriculars.</p>

<p>Your chances at a four-year college and pre-med are not over. Even if you can't get into the colleges that everyone's heard of, there are still many good colleges in the Boston area. Consider asking for additional letters of recommendation from your volunteer organization. </p>

<p>Colleges have to look at other things than just a homeschooler's GPA, since the grading could be biased. </p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>Are any of your grades from outside classes? Do you do well in interviews? Those will help you as well.</p>

<p>My SAT score is terrible and much worse than I thought. I only scored 1320. It was my first time taking the test but my tutors really expected me to do MUCH better, I completely failed the math section. I'm really disappointed and unsure about what I can do now.
I'm embarrassed about sending my score but might ANY college admit me?
I have a sponsor for my tuition so I'm not looking for any scholarships if that helps at all, but he doesn't want me to go to a community college and I really can't afford to take a year out.</p>

<p>I can interview well and I have letters of recommendation from my employers and volunteer organizations but the only outside classes I did during highschool were for a diploma in Gemology studies and I did Brazilian portugese classes at a language school.
I don't know why I did so badly, maybe I was just too nervous.
Any advice?*</p>

<p>Could I retake the SAT in January, apply to colleges now and send the scores later?</p>

<p>Each school will have its own deadlines; check the school's admissions page.</p>

<p>Good luck! :)</p>

<p>Try the search engine on this site. Put in your SAT scores and desired major - perhaps locations you're interested in - and see what pops up. Then check their admission deadlines. If you don't need any financial aid, you're at an advantage for late admissions.</p>
