SAT I : CR 630, MATH 790, WR 740 (going to retake at January, aiming for higher than 700 in CR)
SAT II, AP : all 800 in Math/Physics/Chem, all 5 in Physics/Cal/Chem/Micro&Macro/CS A & AB
Awards/EC's: Award in USAMO, AMC, AIME, other international robotics competitions, etc (Pretty strong I think)
1. The problem is I have almost no relationship with my professors. I got an A+ in my Calculus III, and A in Physics, but i think the professors don't know me because the class in too big to know my name, and i only visited one or two times in my office hours. I have less than two months, and i heard that LOR is a HUGE factor for college transfer (is this right?). What should I do now to get a strong recommendation letters? I need tips... (and MIT requires 3 letters...sucks)
2. Does my scores make a good shot for Cornell & MIT? (my SAT CR scores sucks, and my HS gpa also, and i don't have any ECs in my college year. would this harm a lot?) Also, I wanna major statistics and finance, is there any other good schools for me?
I really appreciate any kind of information from u guys!!!
