    what are ur subscores for SAT?
    i wouldnt send in the Math II. But if u get high on the math part in SAT, that could make up for ur Math II. do they offer ACT where you live? maybe you should try that.
    And assuming you took rigorous courses, i think u have a decent chance to get in, but idk if you'll get a lot of aid.
    good luck! try applying to a few colleges that give good aid to international students.

    I have now:
    CR: 650 M: 700 WR: 640

    Also I'm from China so theres no ACT, but I'm not applying for Financial Aid.

    Should I send in my SAT II? How are my chances looking?

    Thank you guys so much!
