These are my individual scores:

Math - 650
CR - 640
Writing - 640

Since most colleges don't count Writing, I only have a 1290, which is pretty fucking average.

I'm a junior, soon to be a senior. I'm def. taking it over in October, and sending in early app to NYU in November.

That's not bad, man. That's above average, you know? Besides, a lot of universities don't think there's a difference between a 650 and a 690. It's politics: if the candidate has a 3% percent lead over his opponent, math shows that it's the same (physics teacher told me some stuff about that). I read that somewhere in one of the articles about getting into college.

It's not bad. But just not good enough for NYU/Fordham/Villanova.

Dude... Apply somewhere else then. You could probably get into USC with that. I mean, what's so cool about Fordham or Villanova? I'm too lazy to look to see what you want to do or whatever, but find other cool schools. My reccomendations:

USC: You seem to like bigger colleges. This place has hawt girls, awesome sports, and if you do well, you will make so much money. Credit Suisse and other investment banks will practically pump money up your asshole if you have a good GPA in the business school. They also have strong connections to the defense/aerospace industry in socal if you like engineering, and all sorts of other stuff in the creative industries. Just don't go here if you want to be a philosopher or something.

I've spent way too much time on this post, and I might post again later.

What we should do is start a "real network" of Hypebeasters who actually go to college, and hook each other up.


brilliant

I got less than you, man, and I easily got accepted in Fordham. Fordham's really not that worth it.

Fordham's just an option. I'm primarily looking into NY/NJ schools.


Philly is just outside of the college zone, though I am applying for Villa.

Yeah, they definitely take that into consideration. Are you taking any AP classes this/next year? Keep improving and make sure you do other things such as extra-curriculars to help push you into the pool.

unfortunately i cant take any ap classes next year because the school im transfering to next year is one of the best in the state and they already got all there ap classes filled. so i think my chances are shot in going to college.

do you think colleges will look at the prestige of the school i go to and consider it?

Pfft you guys working so hard to get into these schools...you're in for a world of disappointment if you have any sense. Take it from someone who got into one of the best schools in the nation.

If you go to a private school, colleges will take that into consideration, since the curriculum is more rigorous than that of public school. If you go to one of the Top 20 Ranked high schools in America, you definitely have a better chance.

yeah they will. I go to BC High (which is pretty well known around the Massachusetts area), and they take that into consideration. Especially if they're comparing you to some kid at the local public school who has the same GPA as you

On the AP thing, they do help a lot, only if you do well though. I changed my schedule for next year just a couple weeks ago to take 2 APs because I was worried about how it would affect me with out them.

man before this year i had an overall academic 1.8 gpa, i was a bad ass kid

now i changed this year and made honor roll with a 3.375 nomatter what i do it seems like i cant get into my college of choice (san diego state) i dont want to go to a 2 year university easier. its like im wasting my time and its to late for me to get better grades

This is true and untrue at the same time. I've had plenty of amigos go to Thomas Jefferson( best public school in the US) who got into good schools because of its name, and the fact that they ARE overachievers. But for the most part, colleges pick you based on your ethnicity and the region you come from. As you know, Northern Virginia is over saturated with elite high schools and students, by an assload. As a result of that over population of "above average" scholars, colleges tend to decline admission to some people that far exceed the "norm requirement" average.

Yeah, a family friend went to TJ and attended Johns Hopkins (just graduated last year); her brother went to Gonzaga and then on to Coast Guard Academy. NOVA is all about elitism and nerds that get into UVA and WM. It's really competitive yet fun.

Universities try to find applicants of various ethnicities (especially Native American and Hispanics) to diversify their campus.

Dirty Jersey all day, I'll be at Rutgers next four years, Mason Gross school of the Arts.

And Snap, what do you have extra curicular? You good with those grades easy for Fordham. If you did stuff outside of school your good to go, I know it was my extra stuff that got me in everywhere I applied not the grades at all.

Don't stress about this stuff, nothing is worse than the kid who talks about college every day in class and is mad od about it, you'll end up where your meant to be...
