Post your SAT or ACT scores with your state and ethnicity.
>Are these HS GPAs?
Yah, my parents didnt care about my grades i never did my Hw, All my classes required me to be organized and write notes in 9 & 10th grade and i have dysgraphia, so i just stopped doing it after getting an F for the 10th time on a write up.
>Come on how hard is it to get a B?
It wasnt, but i had no motivation and my parents didnt care.
It was cause I never turned shit in. So while I studied and did really good on tests and essays and shit my grades always sucked cause I fucking hated doing repetitive ass in-classwork and homework.
It's funny cause out of all the Asians in my class I was the only one who got higher than 2000 on the SAT at all, but their GPAs were 3.7s-4.5s compared to my 2.89.
I probably should've gone to CC since there's one right down the street from mine, but last year I got caught up in the "go-to-university" hype haha. I don't regret it that much though, since I'm set on loans and it's pretty chill down here.
>tfw I was always a great test-taker when I was younger then as I started caring more about school I got worse, prepared badly for the ACT and got a 29
I should have re-taken it my senior year
My friend retook it then beat me with a 31 and it's haunted me since
nope, the one i just took in november takes 1/4th of a point off for getting the wrong answer
even the fucking test proctor said it's better to just skip questions if you don't know them
That and a good GPA got me a really good scholarship. Thank god because half my friends will be paying of student loans for the next 5 years.
I got a 17 on math and a 25~ in everything else.
>tfw never learned to maths goodly
31 ACT (33 math was highest section)
From Jew jersey
>applying for colleges
>use my school districts fancy system that lets me see the GPAs and test scores of students from the same district that applied to schools
>every school I look at shows a handful of people with similar or lower stats being accepted
>realize affirmative action is a thing and they are probably all black
>give up and apply to bad colleges
Okay whatever you say.
BC is nice, but it isn't MUH SFS.
You could also start trafficking. El Chapo needs another mole.
not an exceptional score compared to some in this thread, but it was the highest in the school that year which really made me see my neighborhood in a different light
I only ever took it once and the only preparing I did was practicing some of the math on a napkin the morning before the test. I wish I had taken high school more seriously. I'm Mexican.
Why is it asking me to send my scores more than 2 years after I took the exam?
>tfw applied to UCSD and UCLA
>rejected from both
>tfw got a letter from Riverside inviting me to come over
I think they did that because the UC system is forced to take in any California student in the top 15% that applies for a UC school. I ended up just staying in San Diego and getting my bachelor's at SDSU.
Is this really true? Or do undergrads in elite schools have an advantage when applying to grad school?
Yeah, I guess the campus really does make it nice. My brother is studying aerospace engineering at UCSD. Do you study there?
>tfw would do anything to go to an Ivy League
>tfw UC and no friends
No, they really don't have any serious advantage. If you do well in undergrad and have extracurriculars and shit, where your undergrad degree comes from makes damn near no difference.
That wouldn't be bad at all. Once you're in the system it's easy as fuck to transfer if you have your shit together. A person can easily go to Merced, do well, and transfer to UCLA/Berkeley.
I hated high school and barely graduated. Skipped every other day and didnt do much homework. I just didnt like being around people. No friends no gf etc. Ended up living neet life for a while.
My half-White, half-Mexican ex-girlfriend from high school got a 2350 on her SAT and ended up getting into Yale. She's majoring in literature. I don't know if she's planning on doing grad school or if she was really dumb enough to go to Yale just to read books when she could've done that at the local library or at a community college. Maybe I'm extremely short-sighted and fail to see what she's doing, she's way smarter than I am.
I know for a fact that professors can have the grad student admittance process waived if you're a bachelors' alumni at the same university.
If you get chummy with the professors and show them how skilled you are compared to everyone else they might fast-track you to grad school.
i'm not even sure what you think this proves
cal accepted 31% of applicants who had a gpa over 4.0, ucla accepted 35%. that means we're more exclusive. same thing for act scores and sat scores
Real Americans take the ACT. The SAT is for Islamic Communists.
