I'm just curious that when I write the colleges that I am not that likely be admitted such as USC (i think it's not that possible for me), should i try to write a more "risky" essay instead? my philosophy is that since I don't have a big chance of getting in already, should I just take a big risk?
My GPA and SAT score is pretty low compared to their applicants. I have 1920 on SAT combined so far and 3.78 weighted GPA (3.58 UW). Moreover, i'm an asian international student and from what I know, that is a fairly big disadvantage?</p>
<p>Is there a chance for a student to be admitted because he or she writes really well regardless of GPA and SAT/ACT? ( well, if she or he is in mid-range of the application pool of a school)</p>
