<p>it's not good, it's not good, it's not good..</p>
<p>i just viewed by score online and i got totally shocked by my oct. SAT score.
verbal score is 40 lower than my august diagonostic test.. ; simple 500
math score which i simply predicted 800 ended up 760.. (with 98%)
i was so aiming JHU and (just for heck of it) MIT.. but now .. i dunno
so i decided to put my lame stats again and want to CCer's advices.</p>
<p>I came USA 4 yrs ago with no english skillz. 2 years of ESL
SAT2 Math2c 800, Physics 760 (Writing on Nov.)
GPA 4.0 UW / 4.4 Weighted.
LOTS of leaderships and roles in school and church
neither a significant research , nor a national award.
attending a big public high school (not many challenging courses)
Science classes(all honors/college classes) ; Chem1, Environmental Science, Oceanography, Bio1, Physics1, Physics2(i took AP Physics and got 4), Chem2, Independent Study(for AP BIO)
Math ; i am taking AP Calc AB now.
SS ; AP US History. (3..)
Recommendations will be really great. also i am working on my essay so it will be pretty good too. (i dont know whether rec. and essay matter alot in JHU though)</p>
<p>i am applying JHU ED.. and wanna do BME..
do I have a chance at BME?? if that chance is minimal, should I change to regular??
i think my verbal score will really KILL me.</p>
<p>i am also applying MIT, GATech, Boston College, and Rice(i was thinking about BS/MD, but i dont think i have any chance at all..)
tell me your insight about my chances plz.</p>
<p>tell me what should i do. where can i go with 500???
i will take TOEFL, to supplement weak 500 , if it's any good.
any replies will be helpful--</p>
