    LF : Serious Tips/Advices for admission into an Ivy League Uni.

    As Topic title states.
    [Serious Discussion]
    Apart from good grades & the money. Which I'm going to get and already have.
    What do they want in particular?
    Anyone knows someone who's been there?
    Scholarship Programmes for Foreign Nationals, does that exist?

    What If I haven't really done much sports and stuff, mostly academic achievements.
    What are the odds of getting in if you're the Dux Of the school?

    I haven't really got my mind made up on what I want to do but I have a few in mind. Something along the lines of English Literature, Economics, History & Art Literature to Anthropology.
    Mostly Language based.

    Just curious to know if MPGH has anything good to advice.


    I Know this isn't a good place to ask, I'm just wondering if anyone here has anything good to offer.

    It varies for every Ivy League University. My brother is going to go to University of Pennsylvania which is an Ivy League University and they wanted good grades, good person, and an overall good look. Most Ivy League Colleges just want the smart people who will bring their college money.

    I'm also doing an Advanced Englished- But not at college level.

    I wouldn't be able to help you with this- I don't even know what I'm going to do with my life, and If i was you- I wouldn't ask the people on here either.

    He currently has a 4.3 I believe (taking most AP classes, next year he will take all AP classes). He's been invited but he's only in 10th grade so he can't really go yet.

    Ivy League admissions departments look at many other things, such as: essays, teacher and counselor recommendations and activities outside of school. These activities can include sports, music, clubs, jobs, and community service.

    at least a 1950 or better SAT. Not necessary, but definitely helps. Remember, you can take the test more than once.

    Minimum 3.75 GPA. A 4.0 is not necessary, but you really do need at least something close to it.


    Leadership experience. Whether its Team Captain or a club officer, you need something that separates you from the crowd.

    A solid well-written essay. The written essay in your application is extremely important. Revise as many times as needed, and take your time. The essay is pretty much the only part of the application an admissions officer has to judge your personal character, outside of letters of recommendation.
