@Hamurtle @sbdad12 @ProfessorPlum168 @momofsenior1 @Gumbymom FOR THE RECORD: I can pay full cost. I don’t need financial aid. However, obviously its the SAT score & me being international that is the reason for all of you saying what you are saying. Being able to pay just removes a negative from me, doesn’t add a positive of course.
However, yes I am planning to retake aiming for 1500 for October.
Just surprised my IB score, my GPA, my ECs don’t have the effect to help that I thought they would since I put lots of time into all 3.
Perhaps its because you all aren’t admissions officers, so you’re focusing on what you can actually give me accurate advice on and of course standardized tests are heavily factored in U.S admissions even if it is ‘holistic’
Also, so some of the suggestions you made for colleges have been refuted by other users.
So then let’s assume my SAT score doesn’t change significantly from what it currently is at? I’m trying to make my current college list from where I’m currently at… obviously if it improves to 1500 that’s a different story, but for RIGHT NOW… what would be good safeties and targets where I can do CS still.
