    Your ACT is going to hurt you. Good chances at NYU/GA tech. Likely at UG. Emory is probably at least somewhat of a reach.

    Thank you so much for your reply.
    I'm glad to hear that I have a good chance at NYU and GT..

    I'm aware of low SAT.. :( but I'm trying hard to prepare for this upcoming ACT!

    Is my GPA and EC somewhat good? what do you think?
  • countzandercountzander Registered User Posts: 20 New Member
    I don't think your SAT score is much of a problem. I made an 1820, and I got into Emory. Have you taken the AP exams yet?
  • DasaniiDasanii Registered User Posts: 135 Junior Member
    I have taken the AP exams for Biology, Psychology, World history, and Statistics.
    But they were kind of bad.. So i'm planning to report them after "if" i get accepted.

    1820 on SAT? I bet you had 4.0 GPA with 34 ACT score or something haha

    I want to go to Emory or UGA. Im really worried about my SAT though for Emory, I got an 1860. Also my ACT was a 25, which I know is really low. What are they looking for at Emory? Also, is it harder to get into if I'm from Georgia?
  • DasaniiDasanii Registered User Posts: 135 Junior Member

    So does that mean i have no chance at emory?
    I'm planning to take the ACT in november.. which is my last chance

    how are my extracurricular looking though?
