Would I be able to get into any of these upper level schools?

<p>I just received my ACT(30) and Sat(1300) scores, I have a 4.21 weighted gpa and I'm in the top 7% of my class(everybody started dropping out :/), and I've taken 5 AP's so far and will have 5 more next year(senior year). However, I was wondering if these would be good enough to get into any of the following schools: Stanford, Brown, University of South Carolina Honor's college(don't want to go unless I can get honors college), Duke, Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech and MIT(lol :/) Any help is appreciated!</p>

<p>Test scores and GPA are definitely too low for all the schools you listed (aside from Carolina and Georgia Tech). Unless you have some secret hook or outrageous ECs, you're looking at high reaches across the board.</p>

<p>Do you mean a 1300 out of 1600?</p>

<p>yes, I got 680 math, 620 reading, and a 520 on writing</p>

<p>I've taken the SAT 3 times now, would it look bad to take it again to try and improve reading and get 700 on math?</p>

<p>It wood. There's not much of a difference between a 680 and 700, honestly. If you feel confident that you can really raise the writing and reading scores, then it's worth it. Otherwise, you shouldn't.</p>
