does anyone here to go berklee in boston? i'd love to go there for music production & engineering, and i've heard that they care more about the audition/interview than your academics (but i'd assume that if you have anything below a 2.0~2.5 unweighted, they probably wouldn't accept you). if you're auditioning for guitar (just as an example), is the audition hard? also, if you go there, what was your GPA when you applied?
post some of your work and I'll let you know if you're getting in

-3.97 unweighted GPA, 4.46 weighted
-2180 SAT, 800 Math SAT II, 800 Chemistry SAT II, 780 US History SAT II
-5 on AP Euro, AP US History, AP Chemistry, AP Physics, AP Calculus AB. 4 on AP Language Composition. 
-Extra Curricular's include stupid shit like Key Club President, City Council Activities Chairperson, Internship at UCI, Internship at a Math Olympiad training institute.

Congrats, homie. I was already drinking when I committed to my college 4 years ago.

Enjoy your summer.

there is absolutely no way you are doing a double major in two ridiculously hard, non-overlapping majors at cal.  you better decide which one you want to do!

History, which I'm assuming is weak competitively and they still didn't take me. And it was two years. Going to that local state school, cannot stand another year at a cc

Well I took AP Computer Science A my sophomore year and AP Chemistry and AP Physics my Junior year and did very well in all three classes. Of all the science classes I've taken, Chemistry stuck out to me (with the exception of Physics). There are a ton of parallels between computer science and chemistry. The internship I did at UCI was in the theoretical chemistry department, which essentially is the "in between" of physics and chem. I wrote computer program simulations and created algorithms to match and explain known phenomena. I'll prolly end up swaying towards the computer science side though. Wanna do something more towards engineering post graduation and end up working for google or apple or something doing hardware or software design. 

appreciate the thumbs and nice comments tho. glad to see hb isn't all just clusterfucks spamming the downvote button.

ASU as in Arizona State University??

ASU has a 89% acceptance rate. People just go there to party, lol.

With over 70,000 students in the desert, ASU is one of the easiest schools to get into unless you're trying to get into one of their prestige schools like WP carey.

The president is trying to get the population up to 100,000.

Transferring to Temple or PSU in the fall, any heads on here go to either one?

Oregon Honors

Rejected by

In case anyone is wondering about my grades and stuff:
Full IB (All HL classes)
3.97 unweighted
2230 SAT
26 ACT lolzzzzz
Many extracurriculars

All my schools offered me merit scholarships, and only Duke rejected me. I honestly still don't understand. I also hate to say it fellas but USC just mainly looked at test scores. Some kids I know with shittier credentials, GPA and no sob story got in because his fire test scores put the team on his back.

Taking my talents to Oregon Honors full ride.

Its part of University of Oregon aka University of Nike, best football school in the nation. Its considered a lot more selective in admissions but in reality its not that impressive just smaller classes and a more liberal arts curriculum. Oh and the best and newest dorms built in 2012 with that Nike money

My top choice was Georgetown/USC of my accepted list but here are the factors:

College tuition is too expensive for my family to afford. Georgetown and USC only gave me 20K in merit which ended up being around 35-40K a year. Damn.

USC was extremely shitty with the financial aid and Georgetown just gave out loans with low interests. Bank $truggle$. But another factor was due to Full IB, I basically start as a sophomore. My main goal is grad school.

But here's a thought I've been thinking of ever since I watched the pilot of Suits and wanting a better a standardized test score. This may be dumb and just pure fantasy, but hear me out; I want some feedback on this plan:

Person A gets 36/2400 on respective standardized test with ease. 
Person B only gets ok scores like 1900/29.
A and B sign up for the same test on the same day at the same local high school. A and B check in with their respective IDs and head out to their room but instead of going to their correct room, they switch. So A is taking B's test and B is taking A's test. B pays off A with a substantial amount of money and it is a win-win situation.

Keep this in mind:
This is the scenario in Oregon. We only need to check in once and then we are free to go to our test rooms.
I know SAT has that cursive thing but one can easily fake it with some practice.
A doesn't go for the perfect score but a damn good score like say 2200-2300/34-35

Thoughts?
