you should definitely get one of the SAT prep books. and study it lots. it's important to understand what you need to look for in the test, and what not to get held up on. not sure if you would qualify, but you can register for extra time, it's hard to get it sometimes, but really worth it.

i got a 600 on the writing, 600 reading, and 450 for math. so i guess 1650. should have retaken it really, if anything to bring my math score up. but, whatever.

Sort of like what Dave said, I would learn about the format of the test, and how to take it.

I took one practice SAT online, which focused on the format of the test, and that's the extent of any studying I did for it. I ended up with a 650 in each of the three.

I'm taking Business Communications now.

It's the most interesting and helpful class I've taken in college.

PS - Everybody else seems to enjoy it too.

^^Depends on what kinda class you take, at my school they had group speaking classes and individual speaking classes. I took a group speech class and it got super annoying because if one group memeber was bad at public speaking my professor would grade all of us down.

Oh I think I'm going to switch because I hate groups.

I also have intro to Sociology and Intro to Criminal justice anyone know what the material is like?


Where do you go to school? That criminal justice one will probably be about the court system and trials, policing methods, and theories of criminality. The Sociology one will be really easy I bet

There's really no way to figure out what college's actually pay attention to when looking at your application. You could speculate forever but in the end admissions is a total crapshoot. Only thing you can really do is do well in school and complete all parts of the application to make you as appealing as possible to the school. If you need to write an essay write the best essay you can. If you think you need extracurriculars go join some clubs. But in the end there's no real way of knowing exactly how colleges make their decisions.


pretty simple to even increase your chances on top of that...in a college town like Ann Arbor, plenty of people are connected to UofM. My friend's pops eats lunch with an admissions officer. just like that word spreads like wildfire about what they look for...
Obviously not every case is cut and dry, but due to reputation and word of mouth everything is almost out there

essays are most important in most selective schools (if you have the standard high GPA and shit like that, because thats the norm)

On another noote, Finished my apps for NYU, Wisc-Madison...waiting to hear back from Mich.

Anyone Know how FASFA works? I've already paid my tution and fees but it says I have money left over? Does the school get the money or does It go towards books?

I heard you get some of the excess money back. Anyone know if this is true?


i never filed for FASFA, but my friends who did each received money back. so someone might know better than me, but i'd say yes

Hey man I've been to both DA and SJSU. If you really can't get into the UC's or private schools, I suggest you try to get in SDSU or Cal Poly SLO before either SFSU or SJSU. SDSU is tiers above the rest in business. And any school that starts with a CSU is no good.

If your options are limited to SFSU/SJSU, I'd pick the one where you will have the most fun. They are very similar academically but SJSU is more of a commuter school I think (I haven't been to SFSU much). Just my 2 cents.


Thanks for the advice man. I'm currently weighing in all options, including USC mentioned by the other guy lol.

You should be able to get back all the money from scholarships/FAFSA if there is any leftover after tuition and fees. Do direct deposit to get it faster.
