Hey yall, I’m freaking out a bit. I recently got my AP Human Geography exam score and it was a 2. Now I’m an incoming sophomore and I DREAM to go to a UPenn. I want to go into the financial industry and they have a wonderful program there. Since I got a 2, will I ever have a chance to get in again? And at that, what ELSE should I do to make my chances of getting in greater? Thanks a bunch! Oh P.S., I couldn’t cancel my scores, you had to do it before you got the score in June apparently…and I sent it to UPenn…
It’s one exam on one day – colleges know that. You have another 2.5 years to show that you’re Penn material (assuming you’ve done fine in 9th grade otherwise).
But the best advice I can give you: don’t fetishize any single school – esp. one that has such a small admit rate as Penn. There are friggen 7th graders who stalk this site looking for how to get into Harvard. eye roll!
