    *sigh* The SATs. I love it. At my high school, it exposed those suck-ups that didn't deserve their high ass GPAs.

    High SAT scores will get you accepted into more prestigious colleges, who are more generous with their financial aid. If you wanna graduate with no loans, I'd recommend aiming for the top 15 Universities/LAC in he USNEWS rankings.

    A 2000 won't cut it.

    My sister got accepted into Cornell with a low score. She got a full scholarship, but she did a lot of volunteering at hospitals and stuff like that. A 2000 will cut if for a top 15 ranked college.
    I just want to get married in a bathing suit... Deal with it.

    Are you talking about University Of Washington? If you're out of state they have no problem accepting your ass if you're able to cough up the tuition. I go there and there has been a lot of drama over how much more out of state students they've been accepting.

    Obviously, there are anomalies. My college used to be top 15 (Rank 17 now) and its median accepted SAT score is 2180. Your sister probably had something really unusual that stood out.

    A similar thing has been happening here, but it concerns international students. Since int. students are fully subsidized by their government, our university could charge a higher price for international students and use the extra money to subsidize the financial aid for poor people.
    Not complaining though. At least I'll have no loans. =D

    Friend of mine got into Berkley with a 1400. Still trying to figure out how he managed that one.

    Hmm...Well it might help that I'm fucking dirt poor, half black and half mexican, and have quite a few sob stories. My 8th Grade teacher's brother is a dean at NYU and use to be a dean at Yale...She said she could try getting me in contact with him. Too bad I don't want to go to any of those schools...Maybe he might know someone?

    Being half-Black and half-Mexican helps you in this situation.
