How Bad Can I do?

<p>although it sounds like an awkward question, how bad, or poorly do you guys think i can score on my SAT and still be a NMF?</p>

<p>i scored a 222 on my psat and i'm in texas.</p>

<p>my unwieghted gpa is around 3.55</p>

<p>and of course lots of extra-curriculars ect..</p>

<p>i did EXTREMELY BAD on my SAT (1850)</p>

<p>so... how much better do i need to get to be safe... in your opinions..?</p>

<p>any insight will help.</p>

<p>thanks.</p>

<p>i would think you should try to get your SAT's above a 2000 but I would shoot for above a 2100. thats just my opinun though.</p>

<p>k thanks..</p>

<p>i got a 184 first time on psat</p>

<p>then 222 second time..</p>

<p>1850 first time on sat</p>

<p>simillar improvement on sat the second time.. if i work my butt off?</p>

<p>You should be able to manage it, and it'd be worth trying for. My score went up by about 300 points my second time around.</p>

<p>thanks bobo</p>

<p>and specific things you did to up your score? besides just alot of practice tests.</p>

<p>i plan to study hard and take in may and june as well..</p>

<p>I think you should get above a 2050, just to be on the safe side.</p>

<p>k thanks.</p>

<p>that should not be a problem if i just take some time to prepare.</p>
