ANY ADVICE FOR SAT's AND SAT II's is SOOOOO APPRECIATED and any additional advice as well. Thank you again!</p>

<p>You need to get those SAT and ACT score up!</p>

<p>Weighted GPA doesn't matter, we need to know your unweighted. As of now, your GPA (I assume your UW is ~3.6), SAT scores, and class rank are all too low for you to have any shot at the Ivies.</p>

<p>Get your GPA up and get your SAT/ACT up. Make sure you are signed up for this June's ACT and/or SAT otherwise you have one last chance for early applications your senior year.</p>

<p>Junior year hasn't finished yet, but I presume by the end my GPA will be a 4.5~4.6 and so my unweighted will be 3.7~3.8, but my school has a really weird system of calculating the grade point average. We only have weighted scale so I think Princeton uses its own system I guess?</p>

<p>Princeton 1%
Harvard 1%
Columbia 2%
Stanford 1%
U of Penn 9%
Duke 10%
Vanderbilt 20%</p>

<p>Roughanswer, wow, I'm not gonna lie that is a pretty rough answer. Kind of mean actually, but thanks anyways.</p>

<p>With those scores, rank, and GPA, I think the Duke and Vanderbilt estimations are a tad generous, honestly.</p>

<p>To tell you the truth, you do not have a shot at any of the schools you listed. You're ECs are nothing special, and your stats speak for themselves.</p>

<p>At best you only have a shot at George Washington U, U of Miami and the other Washington. </p>

<p>And that's mainly because you're a minority.</p>
