<p>Nearly everyone here claims to have an SAT somewhere in the 2200+ range... but this is the 99th percentile. This fact lends us the truth that obviously some/the majority of people are stretching the truth a bit.
We needn't panic. If you have a solid GPA, some ECs you've stuck with for a few years and have gotten some leadership in, and some good SAT/ACT scores (hey- a 2000 is still the 88th percentile- top 12% in the nation), in addition to putting reasonable effort into your essay, you'll go to a good and fitting school.</p>
<p>Seriously, either a lot of people are lying here or this is the actual Silicon Valley of anonymous internet message boards.</p>
<p>And to some posters who claim to have taken like 25 APs in addition to 1000+ hours of service + other fantastic ECs + all A's... when do you sleep?</p>
