I'm a senior (the year before college or university) in the US, and I was thinking that those of us that are applying or are enrolled in University could give there thoughts on the admissions process, all the stupid tests you have to take (SAT, etc), what college you are currently attending, what you think of certain schools, etc.
I will be applying to Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Peabody (the music school at Hopkins), Yale, and maybe the Curtis Institute of Music. The only place I have a chance of getting in to is Peabody, but my first choices are Curtis and then Yale. I will probably major in violin performance, but history (Middle Eastern-Islamic, Chinese, Russian) and astronomy are also possibilities if I did a double major at Yale or Johns-Hopkins.

Those are some rather prestigious schools man. Hopefully Yale will accept you. :thumb:

I pretty much have always wanted to go to Penn State, as it has everything to offer, including a meteorology program. My SAT's were not as good as I hoped, but I still got admitted to Penn State and that's all that matters. I'm thinking about meteorology or International Business for my major, although if possible I would love to unite meteorology and business/actuarial science, in one lucrative field. I just started my freshman year last September. :)

    Nah man I go to Penn State University, the 10th best Public Uni in the country, not the University of Pennsylvania. The latter is an Ivy League school which has the best business school in the country. U Penn is a little bit out of my "league". :D

    Well I applied to four universities in Florida, so far I have got into two of them.

    The other university says the won't accept me until next year so I won't bother with that one.

    Well, I applied before I did my SAT's and got accepted before my SAT results came out. I got in based on my High School Transcripts, which is not of the USA system, but of the British system (Cambridge/GCE).

    But for a schol, I believe you need the SAT's and above a certain grade.

    For example, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University told me that I will need 1350 or higher to obtain a scholarship.

    Help me then. I sense theyre gonna DESTROY me in verbal. Its too hard

    And math, lets dont even talk about it
    Just buy an SAT book and practice. Also, learn as much words you can, especially from the High Frequency list. Although, to be honest, not all the words in the exam come from there.
