Yeah but thats not really the only reason but it might have helped(her scores werent that bad). She isnt really my sister, she is my cousin we took in after some deaths(her mom and dad etc.) Than after she move with us, she pulled no less than a 3.6 for her last 2 years. Plus her scores werent that bad. Every1 thinks its funny because her school is slightly ranked higher than mine and she isnt nearly as book smart, but she had to overcome a lot more than me. But no one at her school will listen, they will just say she got in because she was black and assume she wasnt worthy of accceptance.

I think that asians has it worst, in terms of getting an advatange in applying to schools. First, most asians don't come from poor neighborhoods and second they are a minority.

I agree you guys do have it pretty bad in terms to applying to schools. My roommate was asian freshman year and we used to joke about it everyday. But there are some advantages, at least teachers assume you are smart at first glance. We had 2 of the same classes and used to joke about the responses I would get on my papers and when i spoke in class. Like "this was really unexpected....you are a great writer". Then i would ask why was it unexpected.....nothing but crickets. Id rather not have to constantly prove myself to get the benefit of the doubt when grading. I swear teaching think Im that kid they give lower grades than he deserves to make the grade distribution better. I have had papers upped whole grades because of bs like that.

about NYU

if you come from out of the city, like Geewiz probably does, he may thorouhgly enjoy it.


but funky, since you live in Jersey and frequenly go to the city (so I think) you may find it less than glamorous.




and quite frankly I stopped complaining about affirmative action once I found the "approximate" breakdown of SAT scores with affirmative action based on a study by Asian Americans:

African Americans - +200 points
Latino Americans- +150 points
Caucasians- no change
Asian Americans - -50 points.

tough break. I don't say anything about it anymore.

Any of you do any extra work after school? all i have right now is basketball but if i have to i might end up playing soccer, volleyball and wrestling next year too. Maybe try and take some extra classes.

none of that is official... although if true i would be embarrassed as every1 in my family scores well on the SAT without prep and we are african american. I just figured out about test prep and it made the LSAT so much easier.

Asians seem not to get mad when we get into affirmative action debates in my school at least not to my face. But the white kids get in face, and proclam "the white anglo saxon male is the recieves the most racism in the world". From my experience Asians have handled the affirmative action "snub" well. But they are probably pissed about it on the inside.

Any of you guys have one of those Affirmative Action Bakesales on your campus or high schools...that was a funny day.

It depends what kind of high school you are in and on the grades you have right now.

Personally for me, there was only like 20 students in my school that actually wanted to compete, and I just pretty much made it through high school without ever opening a book to read, unless it was some english class (my English teachers were really tough), anyways, I recommend to just pick up a book after school and start studying a bit. It will definately help when you are in college that you get some experience studying, because if you never done so, it's quite a shock when you come to college.

Anyways, just make sure you get good SAT scores if you are applying to above average universities. And start doing scholarship applications as early as possible because money doesn't just fall out of the sky like some students actually thought it happened.

Good luck.

Just wanted some advice from you seniors on what colleges I could get into, I've got a 4.2 Gpa (3.9 unweighted) and I'm going to a competitive private high school. I'm a little low on extra-curriculars like sports but I did do band for two years, I've played out of school in rec leagues since freshmen year, I've coached 3 different youth basketball teams, and taught at a sunday school for middle schoolers this year. Neither of my parents completed college, I'm 1st generation american and yeah thats all that really matters I guess.

I want to get into med school eventually and all my Sci grades are A's.

I was planning on applying to the following:
Stanford
NYU
USF
John Hopkins
UCLA
UCSB

Which of these universities do you guys think I could get into?

That's it. School I wanted to go to and backup school. I'm pretty pissed that I didn't get in.
