Transcript: serious advice needed

<p>I heard that if I have not yet graduated from the school, I must include in my transcript "all classes I have taken". But what does it mean? From what class should I write my transcript? Isn't since my 1 class?</p>

<p>Most US schools want to see your grades from all the classes you have taken in high school, which usually means since the 9th grade. A few colleges consider only those since the 10th grade.</p>

<p>Are there age limits to enter American universities?</p>

<p>It can vary by school, but most schools do not have specific age limits, although the vast majority of incoming freshman are about 18 years old, plus or minus a few years.</p>

<p>What if I'll be only 16 years old when I go to university?</p>

<p>I'm pretty sure it's ok. I also graduated from the Russian school when I was 16, but I went to a Russian university for a year before I went to the US. That means tha I applied when I was 16, but was admitted when I was 17. But I guess there's no big deal between 16 and 17. So don't worry!</p>

<p>P.S> For the answer to your transcript question, look up my post under the GPA topic</p>

<p>Every recomendation is consisted of checkboxesand text. I must translate the text, but what about checkboxes? I think they should not translated.</p>

<p>Another... Recsmust be sent from the teacher, and their translation from the agensies. So, what to do here?</p>

<p>I'm not quite getting what you are talking about. What checkboxes? There are "checkboxes" in the English form for recommendation - so what do you want to translate???
Then, as for translations - they should be together in one envelope with your teacher's recommendation - so it is sort of the teacher's problem. But as I assume teacher won't be so excited to help you as to go and do the translations - you can recommend them some agency and you should, of course, pay for it yourself - but the teachers should get the translations and send them with the original. Agancies do not send anything anywhere - they only certify them with their stamp.</p>

<p>Thank you, manyzhka!!</p>

<p>"checkboxes" eto, gde uchitel' stavit galochki, pishet obshuu informaciu o sebe i t.d., a text - eto v principe i est' sama recomendaciya.</p>

<p>What were your SAT results?</p>

<p>Citation:</p>

<p>"V sluchae, esli Vi eshe ne zakonchili shkolu, vash transcript dolzhen vkluchat' perechen' vseh disciplin i ocenok, poluchennih za ves' period obucheniya"</p>

<p>What does it mean, Manyzhka? "All period of studying" is from 1 class, or maybe 5, or 9?</p>

<p>Nachinaja s devyatogo. :)
moj sat...bil yzhasnij- mogno ya tebe ne bygy govorit'? isporchy reputaciju universiteta:) sat II bil lych'she : 690 wr; 730 Ic ; 740 iic - ne super-puper, no niche:) ya bila dovol'na - tam zhe sat math rasschitani na graficheskij calkulyator - tak chto nekotorije zadachi bila na funkciju pyatoj stepeni, kotoroju na bymazhke karandashom risovat' ne ochen' veselo:) kak ti ponimaesh' - nikakogo graficheskogo kal'kylyatora y menya ne bilo. A ti yzhe sdaval (a) chto-nibud'?? TOEFL? Ny i kak - horosho? Nebos' ochen' horosho vse zdash', raz v oblasti samij lych'shij ychenik (ca). :))</p>

<p>No, my SATs will be not so good as you think. I will be very glad if I have such results as you have. The reason is I had not any book for prepare until the very recent time. Now I hope for 700+ on my SAT IIc. TOEFL I will take in December (I plan so).</p>

<p>By the way, I bought the graphic calculator specially for the SAT IIc.</p>

<p>Manyzhka, esli chestno, kakuu unikal'nuu osobennost' ti imela, raz postupila s takimi rezul'tatami. Nebos' otlichnoe esse ili ECs.
Na schet luchego uchenika, ti uzh preuvelichivaesh, mozhet bit' I mog bi schitat'sy primerno 1 iz 10-15 luchshih.</p>

<p>Pishi!! Priytno po obshat'sy.</p>

<p>Molodec, chto yzhe sejchas gotovish'sya. Ya TOEFL 30 Sentybrya v proshlom gody sdala. Priehala i 1 Octyabrya tol'ko nachala gotovit'sya k SAT, kotorij zdala yzhe 1 Noyabrya - to est' real'no gotovilas' tol'ko tri nedeli. Predstavlyesh'? Poetomy ya bila ochen' dovol'na tem, chto polychila - dlya togo skol'ko ya gotovilas':) Tozhe samoje s SATII - tol'ko tri nedeli. Tak chto ti molodec, chto zaranee nachal - ya vot sejchas dymaju, chto ochen' glypo vse delala - riskovanno.
Ti na skol'ko dymaesh' Toefl napishehs'??
Pochemy vzyali s takimi resul'tatami? A kakimi yzh takimi - ne sovsem oni i plohije. Vse moi SAT II i Math SAT I vhodyat v Yale range - tol'ko Sat verbal neskol'ko ne popadajet - no zato Toefl vishi trebyemogo, i writing tozhe niche. Tak chto ne znaju. No naverno i ECs i essay povlijali - kto ih znaet. A, ny i eshe medal' - y nih zhe GPA vazhnee SATs. A tak zhe, ya dymaju, chto malo lydej iz Rossii k nim podajet - a eto tozhe vlijaet.
No na samom dele tut ochen' tyazhelo skazat'. Oni vse strannije ochen' - ne pojmesh' kogo i po kakim priznakam berut. Ya podavala v 20 universitetov. Vzyali tol'ko v 5. No eto, skoree vsego, svyazano s finansirovanijem. Iz teh kyda ti podaesh', krome Yale, vzyali v Grinnell - no y nih finansirovanije ochen' plohoje - tam y nih vsego odna polnaja stipendija - kotoryju nereal'no polychit'. A tak oni tol'ko half-tuition dajut.</p>

<p>Znachit Grinnel trepletsy, chto obespechit lubogo studenta.
Sudy po tvoim SAT II ti ne podavala v Harvard i MIT, a v kakie ti postupila? I chto sovetuesh' na schet finansirovaniya (v kakaom universitete luchshe)?
I ranshe dumal, chto iz Rossii stol'ko postupaet v Americu, a okazalos', chto ochen' malo. Lichno I dazhe bous', chto esli uchitely i director uznaut, chto I postupau v Americu, zolotoi medali mne ne vidat'. Skazhut, mol, idi-ka ti v nash rodnoi institute, gde tol'ko odni dvoechniki uchatsy.</p>

<p>6 Nov I sdau SAT II, nadeus' udachno vse proidet. Kstati, ti postupala kak transfer?</p>

<p>Kak po mojim SAT II ti opredelil, chto ya ne podavalal v Harvard i MIT?</p>

<p>P.>S A pro Grinnell eto ti prav:)</p>

<p>"Kak po mojim SAT II ti opredelil, chto ya ne podavalal v Harvard i MIT?"</p>

<p>MIT i Harvard trebuet, chtobi applicant sdaval 3 SAT II, pri chem Math Ic i Math IIc schitautsy za odin.</p>

<p>Pravda? Stranno - oni vidat' chto-to izmenili. Ya podavala v Harvard - nikakih problem s etim ne bilo. V MIT ne podavala... Ya voobshe iz ochen' prestignih tol'ko v Yale i Harvard podavala - i to slychajno - prosto ygovorili dryz'ja poprobovat' - vse ravno mol nichego bi ne poteryala:) Ny vot i "poprobovala" Kstati, v etom gody Yale bil more selective chem Harvard:))))
Chto kasaetsya finansirovanija - hodyat sluh, chto lychshee v Princeton, tak kak oni ne dajut zaemov; v Yale i Harvard ochen' horoshee. Naschet MIT ponyatija ne imeju. Ya postupila eshe v neskol'ko LAC - Grinnell; Bates; Conncoll; Colby; eshe bila na liste ozhidanija v Carleton (kotorij top LAC) i Hamilton - no ya na liste ne ostalas', poetomy ne znaju, chem tam delo bi konchilos':)</p>

<p>Stranno.. I pomnu sprashival Harvard kakie SAT II sdavat' on mne otvetil, chto obyzatel'no Writing, a dve matematiki ne zachtutsy. Voobshe-to neznau, mozhet bit' i bili izmeneniya.</p>
