Hello, fellow CC users!
So I’m currently working on my college applications, and I’m not 100% sure of which colleges I should apply
And I would like to ask for ur opinion about my chances of getting into the colleges that I applied to, since I’m not familiar with the standards of us colleges.
I’m a female Asian student who is currently living in Saudi Arabia (and I’ve never been to US before)
I’m planning to major in film studies or visual arts, and maybe minor in computer science
My GPA is 3.98 (UW) and 4.07 (W)
my SAT score is 1950
I took AP Psychology and AP Comparative Government in Junior year (got 5 for ap psych and 3 for ap cg)
I’m taking AP Calculus, AP Physics and AP Literature right now
Also took several computer courses, but my school didn’t provide any AP computer sciences)
taking film studies course in next semester.
I don’t have SAT II scores… do you think would affect my chances a lot?
My Toefl is 103
