<p>here are my stats</p>

<p>Asian NY resident
3.51 gpa weighted
1140 sat w/ 630 verbal and 510 math. I also got a 12 on my essay along w/ 590 writing
6 aps
5 activities, 3 volunteer work, 2 part time jobs, 2 officer positions.</p>

<p>I know my stats aren't great, but I didn't expect a rejection...I thought I will at most recieve a deferral. They said I can write them a letter to repeal my case, should I do it. I think they believed that I lied on my ecs, which is untrue, do you guys think I should appeal? Thx</p>

<p>Hmmm...I think you should've been accepted with those stats. They're not bad at all...SAT scores are a little low but we're talking about Stony Brook here. Maybe you should try to contact the school</p>

<p>If you really want to get into SBU...I believe that you should write them a letter of repeal...sorry couldn't help too much..</p>

<p>Thx for the encouragement everyone. When I received the rejection letter I was like ohhh crappy, I'm not going to be accepted into any college. I just didn't under why I was rejected since I took all honor classes and a lot of APs.</p>

<p>sorry to hear that.. i guess my chances are totally shot.. i got a bit higher gpa.. but everything else you beat me by lots.. :-(</p>

<p>My friends got in with waaaaay lower stats, so I dunno why I didn't get in. The admissions are so random...</p>

<p>Really? i'm sorry to ask but like how much lower? anything lower than 3.59 GPA and 1020 SAT and 1 AP?</p>

<p>Dude, sorry to break it to you but your stats were iffy for SB. Your SATs suck, your GPA is below the average for admits (and a 3.51 weighted might not mean much at all depending on your school's weighting system), and your ECs seem okay but not stellar.</p>

<p>So sure, appeal... it can't hurt. But I doubt they think you lied about your ECs, so it would help if you had something else to show them. Maybe demonstrate that you have a really strong interest in the school? Good midyear grades? An extra recommendation?</p>

<p>Good luck. What's your intended major?</p>

<p>Princeyboyo my friend had lower sat and gpa than you. My intended major is history, btw my guidance gave them a call asking why I didn't get in since I'm top 20% of my class with the most rigorous course load.</p>

<p>yea i honestly think its some sort of mistake.. if people lower than me ..not to offend your friends, got in.. you should of just of been able to walk in. I would say good luck but you won't need it.</p>

<p>yhcln -- I saw your post and figured I might be able to help. If your grades and scores are really what you say they are, it sounds like you should be in the consideration pool. It might be that we're missing updated scores, or something along those lines. I'd suggest you contact us, or at least ask your school to send your most updated academic information (midyear grades, updated SAT scores, whatever) and ask for reconsideration.</p>

<p>What Pseudonym said is correct about weighting systems; and not that I'm discounting what you posted, but what appears on students' transcripts doesn't always reflect their own impressions of their work. </p>

<p>I don't mean that in a negative way, just an honest one. We get a lot of calls from students who say they have a 1300 SAT, but that's all three sections combined, not just reading and math. Or they say they have a 3.5 GPA, but it's on a six-point system. I don't want to discount your academic performance, but if you feel that your decision was made in error, please let us know. I can't guarantee anything, but we're willing to reconsider students if their information was wrong. You can contact our Dean of Admissions and ask her for reconsideration, but make sure you send updated academic info.</p>

<p>I can't address what happened with other students, unfortunately; I can only address your specific situation. We consider every application individually.</p>

<p>Hope this helps; please let us know if you have any other questions.</p>

<p>Thanks everyone. My guidance gave them a call and shes sending them the updated SAT along with my letter a appeal. I'm crossing my fingers!</p>

<p>Good luck! Any questions, let me know.</p>


<p>Awww i got rejected :-( :-(, Anyone know of any other good schools like stony that has rolling admissions?</p>

<p>princeyboyo can you please post your stats and say if you applied under EOP</p>

<p>1020 SAT ( 520 Math. 500 CR. 430 Writing)
3.59 GPA
160 Volunteer Hours 2 Leadership positions
I didn't apply for EOP. BUt i think i could of qualified..</p>

<p>damn i think i got rejected or deferred from SBU..i checked my application status today and it said they are "unable" to offer me admission "at this time". I don't have the greatest stats but I do feel that I had a shot to get in. (3.6 weighted gpa, bad sat's thou) Also, my friend recently got accepted and he had lower stats than me in everything except SAT scores AND he didn't even fill out a supplemental or any recommendations. :-(</p>

<p>So i guess we know know that Stony Brook looks at the SATs quite a bit here.. </p>

<p>I really really wanted to get into this school.. Its just ironic that people who really didn't care about getting into stony brook get in, and i who wanted to go there more than anyone i knew that i applied there.. got rejected.. I'm just like..gha.. i really really wanted to get in.. Did everything, supplemental, reccomendations, Visit, Interview ( i knew that didn't help much but what the hell), and prayed everyday for it lol.. yea i'm a freak..</p>

<p>and btw.. i have pretty much the same stats as you nyknicks23. Except i had a 3.59 unwieghted.. i believe that is the one without the wieghts.. but i had a 3.59 weighted anyway lol.. so it really doesn't matter. and this is out of 4 point scale.. 1020 SAT ( 520 Math. 500 CR. 430 Writing)</p>

<p>It's weird because i figured they looked at the GPA more, my SATs were mediocre at best but I had a 3.7 GPA. I didn't do the supplemental cause at that point I was just applying because I felt weird only applying to one college.</p>

<p>another one to the reject pile, just checked mine.. I guess they really do look the SAT.. ;-(</p>
