PRINCETON ED APPS, what are you sat scores?

<p>it seems that almost everyone has over 1500. and about half of you have around 1550. geez.</p>

<p>i have a 1490, it doesn't count though... :(</p>

<p>Why doesn't it count?</p>

<p>cause its not a 1500</p>

<p>It's a perfectly decent score, and I think the question was just asking what scores, not who got above a 1500.</p>

<p>I have 1530 (740V+790M). </p>

<p>And i think 1490 is very ok. When i had my sat in june, i was hoping for a 650 at verbal, cause here, in romania, 1450 is generally considered ok (ouch - that sound awful, i know...). What i mean is that i know about 4-5 persons (last 3 years) who had 1460-1480's and who are now at p, mit, harvard etc... i know this might not matter very much, but thought i'd say it. :) </p>

<p>so i am really puzzled about how much these figuers really matter...
Oh, and just a thought, but i'm sure i aint the only one who thought of this:</p>

<p>The pton ppl say that they don't follow ANY formula or algorithm to evaluate an applicant. But this means that they don't follow anything official, so the so-called flexibility means that they can do anything they want and answer to no one. I don't reject the idea that they do have rules, un-written and maybe weiard... spooky... this way they can have some important rules, without everybody trying to suckup and look like an ideal applicant... ... ...because nobody knows what an ideal applicant looks like...</p>

<p>confusion... I mean the only thing i see and hear is "just be yourself"... yea right! which self?!</p>

<p>Fear not! I have a score below 1500 too. (Yay.) I took the SAT I fall of junior year and received a 1470 (800 V, 670 M). But I retook it yesterday. So maybe my math went up to a 700. (Doubt it, though.)</p>

<p>1510 (760M 750V) my junior year.</p>

<p>Retook it Nov 6, and am waiting for those results.</p>

<p>1490s represent! 800 verbal, 690 math</p>

<p>for SAT IIs - writing 800, u.s. history 740, math IIc 620 (ugh, I know, but I retook it yesterday and I think I did much better since I have a quarter of calc under my belt)</p>

<p>Did anyone here take the ACTs?</p>

<p>I did. Composite of 35. 36's on Math and Science, 34's on the other two.</p>

<p>33 composite for me, with 34 English, 31 Math, 36 Reading, and 32 Science.</p>

<p>Definitely hate the science and math; I admire anyone who is as good at it as you!</p>

<p>I have a 1550-780 M, 770V</p>

<p>But dont they compare your SAT scores to the rest of your area? I mean, a 1400 in the middle of a ghetto urban area has GOTTA hold more weight than a 1500 in an affluent, opportunity-filled environment. Right?</p>

<p>I'm angry at you 800 Verbal people, rawr</p>

<p>760- Math
700- Verbal</p>

<p>Way too low, but hey!, you never know</p>

<p>I would think so, hobbes <em>gulps for self</em></p>

<p>Well, max, I'm sure you did much better than me on your maths, so I wouldn't be too jealous</p>

<li>800 math 760 verbal. </li>

<p>didn't we already do this somewhere?</p>

<p>Yeah, we did all this in the roster section. Guys, don't worry about scores, as long as you are within range, you will be fine. Also, unlike other schools, Princeton uses a 1-5 scale, not a 1-9 scale. So, whereas someone with a 1550 would be an 8 compared to a 1600 who would be a 9, all of them will be clumped together in the Princeton category 5.</p>

<p>I only have a 1460 (750m/710v) and I think that I am tied for lowest on the ED roster right now, lol. I don't see any reason why a score wouldn't be viewed in the context of the scorer's certainly wouldn't be fair to compare the score some rich kid at Andover received to the score a middle class kid from Iowa received.</p>

<p>I have 1240 (800M 440 V)(really low verbal but well I've been in Usa just for 2 years, I will try to retakeit in december) I look so bad next to you guys :(</p>
