<p>What do you mean? Anyhow, your score is way too low to yield any decent chance.</p>

<p>my score is low because i didn't finish and i know i can get 32 and higher
about the sports i mean will it hurt me that i didn't play any sports
or are grades and other extra curricular activities enough</p>

<p>Plenty of people get in without having played sports; it is far from a requirement. Try the SAT as well to see how you do on that.</p>

<p>im good at writing and math but the critical reading is my weak spot for the sat
and im much better on the ACT</p>

<p>ive grown up in a very noncompetitive school, but i really work hard so that i know i can deliver my best work</p>

<p>will growing up in a noncompetitive environment make it really hard for me to adjust to competitive life in an ivy if i do get accepted anywhere, or is my determination enough that i will be able to compete with such qualified people who have grown up going to the best/competitive schools</p>

<p>Most people attending top schools did not attend the best high schools. You would know better than we would whether you can succeed at a rigorous college.</p>

<p>Because your school is noncompetitive, your standardized testing becomes more important in giving context and meaning to your GPA.</p>
