    AFAIK ED is due October 1st, some are due December and the rest are January 2nd. The UK is even February for some.
    Which is which I don't remember off the top of my head.

    Good luck. My school offers online test prep, and I could give it to you if you need it. The SATs ain't that bad, though.

    Never took the SAT myself, just the ACT.

    I took the practise test, math was meh but my reading and writing were great. I'm probably going to get the book just so I have it.
    Thank you [:D]


    Edit: Grammar. Oh the irony :p

    No prob. I'm always here to help with college stuff. Mind you, I'm obviously not as good a writer as you, but I am a good editor.

    Texas Update: I actually like it.

    Funnily enough, math is (supposedly) improving in SAT scores while writing and such are declining. Everyone I know is great at writing and horrid at math...with the exception of Joe :p

    Thank you. You could probably help me with math.:p
    What's your favourite part? (Or the pros and cons, if you wish.)

    I'm definitely no help with Math. Though I have been managing B's on my tests this year...which is surprising :p

    I can certainly help with math.

    Pros: Reading segments were very fun for me. The passages are usually interesting, and I do very well on those parts.
    Cons: The writing prompts suck. Math is a very specific set of problems, and it feels like busywork. The spacing of the tests across 10 sections distracts me, and breaks my focus. You need SAT2s to apply to most schools.

    Honestly, take the ACT plus writing. It's only got 4 sections vs 10, and it's just easier and more fun.

    It says you're chances for Cornell are pretty good with Bs? No offense, but someone with literally perfect grades is a reach for that school.

    I have no idea. That was my only B, I have a 3.75 GPA and it asked me to take a SAT practise. That's how it decided. [face_dunno]

    I meant a list for Texas, but that's helpful too. :)

    Odd. What does it say for Brown?

    Oh. Gotcha. I'll make it after I see Rice.

    It says Brown is a reach. Cornell it says I'm fine. Of course, that's a 10% admission difference.

    If I can argue my case for those few courses I mentioned my GPA will technically be a 4.0 here...It could also end up a 3.8.
    That being said I do have to convert it and my guidance counsellors didn't give me any help with that. It's confusing.
    Some sites/universities say A- (an 80-89 in Canada) and A+ (90-100) are two different things. Some say 80+ = 4.0 :p

    Alright. :)

    That GPA grading system is pretty dumb. I really hope you can argue it. If not, you can attach a note directly to the common app.

    Of course. [face_sigh]. Ah well. I have a feeling I'll like UT a lot.

    It is. Why they can't just have one province-wide GPA conversion method, I'll never know.

    [:D] It also says not to give up, since grades aren't the only thing they look at. ;)
    With your leadership experience and involvement in the school community you'll have a better chance than I will, since I was involved in 4 clubs total.

    I'm not giving up. UT Austin has a top five CS program. Brown doesn't. Depending on how much I like the school...

    Alright. The sigh just looked like you were upset. I hope you do like it, because that'd be a great programme.

    I'm just irritated because other factors have really turned me off to Brown.

    Oh. At least they didn't turn up when you were already enrolled.
