<p>I have average stats (2250 SAT, 800 SAT IIs) for an Asian international and I have pretty good ECs with a lot of leadership (particularly in the major I am interested in - Economics). I am a full IB candidate and these are probably my predicted grades:</p>

<p>Maths HL: 5 or 6
Physics HL: 7
Economics HL: 7
English A1 SL: 5 to 7 (most probably 6)
Philosophy SL: 6 or 7
Spanish Ab Initio: 7</p>

<p>Essentially my predicted grade may be between 37 and 41 out of 42 (I would anticipate 39 or 40). </p>

<p>How would my worst case and best case scenario look at Emory?</p>

<p>My SAT scores are hypothetical. I have taken many practice tests and received scores between 2230 and 2320. As for the SAT II, I have got 800 in all practice tests.</p>

<p>Do you need FA? If you are an international student, and you need FA it may adversely affect your admission. If not, then you are fine.</p>

<p>Nope. I don't need financial aid.
Brown university said a 39 out of 42 looks good for them, so I was wondering whether Emory looks at the grades less stringently as it isn't as selective as Brown.</p>

<p>American schools pay much less attention to predicted IB grades than the rest of the world. As for best- and worst-case scenarios, acceptance and rejection.</p>

<p>If you score as well as you've done on your practice tests, and don't come across as someone who'll sit in his or her dorm room all day, you should have a good chance.</p>
