    Chances

    I'm starting this topic so as to help people asses their portfolios and what can be done in order to improve their chances of getting into colleges of their choice. I'm really open to solving any of your doubts and have a casual chat if u need one.
  4. So, I really want to go to Yale. It's been my dream for a long time. I'm also applying for Harvard and Princeton, because those are the only Ivy Leagues that offer good financial aid to international students (I'm from Canada). If I get in, I plan on majoring in history or political science. The thing is, I'm in Math Studies SL. I don't plan on doing sciences or math or anything like that, I only want to do humanities. Do I have a good shot at getting into Yale, Princeton, or Harvard's history or political science programs with a 7 in Math Studies, given that my other grades, extra curriculars, and standardized test scores are perfect? Is it required of me to take Math SL to get into a humanities program? Thanks!
  5. Hi I'm a European IB student who is thinking of applying to the states and I was wondering what sort of SAT, ACT and IB scores Ivy league universities expect on average to be able to apply? Also just wondering how IB students are seen by American universities and what they look for in IB students? Thank you! -ncarmont
  6. Hello, I recent issue I've had that in my past SAT2 Exam i came to the test unprepared, i only did Math2 and physics. I found Math 2 easy as it was very similar to our IB Math HL syllabus but i have found physics very different. I think i did fairly well on the math but not so much on the physics, so my question is: Does having bad SAT2 scores rule out the chance of being admitted to prestigious universities even though i have strong SAT reasoning scores and a high IB predicted?
  7. Hey guys, I'm currently doing the IB diploma programme in Finland, and I've just finished my first year. I was thinking of applying to an ivy league college, since they are pretty much the only colleges that offer sufficient financial aid (my family wouldn't be able to pay for pretty much any kind of education). The problem that I am facing in applying to these colleges, is that I am pretty much at the end of the priority list: I'm and international applicant, I'm doing the IB (as I understand American colleges prefer the American high school program, even though it might be less challenging in some areas), I'm not a representative of any kind of a minority and I require financial aid that would pretty much fully cover my studies. Because of this I will need to excel far and beyond others in order to have even the slightest chance of getting accepted. So my question is: what kind of other things should I concern myself with doing in order to increase my chances of acceptance? I mean things like extracurricular activities, competitions etc. Basically, assuming I get perfect scores from the IB finals + TOK + EE and the SAT (or at least near perfect) and ranked the first in my school, what could I do to increase my chance of acceptance? I'm not playing any kind of group sports, so that isn't an option, nor am I a president of any kind of a club. Only things which come to my mind right now are things related to academic achievements, for example Finland organizes a mathematics competition between high school students, and I'm doing my best to prepare and to at least be in the top three. Another thing is a competition organized by the Finnish Academy of Sciences for the best investigative work (basically the EE), and they have a section for people doing the IB-diploma where people send their EE's (only exception is that there is no word limit in this, so it can be an extended version of the extended essay ). So what do you think about my suggestions and what else could you suggest for me to do in order to increase my chances of getting accepted into an ivy league college? And by the way, do the activities which we do as a part of our CAS count towards extracurriculars etc. in the application? In that case, I've done my service hours and a little more (about 80 hours) working as a volunteer in a science center called "Heureka", working as an inspirer (basically the guy who walks around the place helping people, the title "inspirer" is a little misleading in my opinion), and I've also done tutoring sessions for pre-ib students in mathematics, chemistry and physics. If these activities count, how much do they count? Thanks in advance!
