Is a 2290 good enough for an Asian female?


<p>I took the SAT and got a 2290. I know that's pretty high compared to the nation's average score, but is it good enough for an Asian female to get into Stanford? Here are the scores I got for each section:</p>

<p>Critical Reading - 800
Math - 760
Writing - 730</p>

<p>And yeah, I have strong EC's (like piano, tennis, violin, chess, etc.), but I'm not AMAZING at any sport.</p>


<p>In my opinion, it's good enough. On the other hand your extracurriculars seem very typical. The more important thing would be to stand out.</p>

<p>"good enough" is not an applicable phrase in admissions. Higher scores yield higher chances; no specific score is required. Moreover, your score is not evaluated in the context of your race as your post suggests. It is, however, true that Asians may be at a slight disadvantage in admissions.</p>

<p>From what you posted, it seems as though you have a solid chance.</p>

<p>I had a 2290 and couldn't play a sport for the life of me, yet I was accepted :)</p>

<p>your scores are strong enough to not retake if you don't want to, in my opinion. your math is above average, reading is...outstanding, and your writing is about average for stanford admits. </p>

<p>if you think you can improve your writing while relatively maintaining your math and reading, it wouldn't hurt to retake. it's never "not worth" a retake unless you think you will do worse.</p>
