<p>I am a U.S citizen living in France and going to school here since 1st grade...
SAT: 1390 combined best (strangely enough 760V only 630M , you would think most internationals do better on math than verbal...). SAT 2: 640 Writing, 620 World History, 800 French. top 10% of class. EC are OK considering school day is 8:30AM - 5:30 PM...
Problem is GPA : my UW gpa is 3.55 , weighted is 3.6. that is sort of low but that because of the way grading works in France.. extremely tough. highest gpa in class is only about 3.7<br>
What are my chances at Columbia (already sent ED) , Brandeis, Amherst, Yale , Cornell , U Maryland , U Michigan - Ann Harbor, U Washington (st louis) , Northwestern etc... ? Any other suggestions, especially on the "safety" side ?
btw the way I wanted to apply to UC berkely and U Virginia but they both require SAT 2 math. why? am I automatically refused If I send in my sat 2 (not math)?</p>
<p>Thanks a lot eveybody. this site is really great help.</p>
