SAT ???!!!

Post by Tiffany » 05 Feb 2002 23:46

Here is my story. Currently I'm an undergraduate business student in a certain public university. I'm doing very well in school (my cumulative GPA = 4.0). I'm thinking of transfering to Wharton school (University of Pennsylvania).
To do so, I have to perform extremely well on my SAT because the competition is fierce. But... Frankly speaking, I don't have required vocabulary to get a decent score on the verbal part. So, I'm afraid to spoil the whole thing.

The question is as follows. Suppose, I will not to take SAT, but still submit the application? What are my chances to be admitted to such a prestigious institution without SAT? Had anybody ever been in the similar situation? If so, how did you manage to get in without high SAT score.
Will it help if I meet with an admission counselor and explain my situation?

And if I decide to take the test and ,let say, get high score in math, but low in English; will it significantly reduce my chances?


Sorry for my English - don't have russian keyboard.

Why do you need SAT in the first place? You're already enrolled in college, right? Anyways, if they need the test, they'll probably ask you take both TOEFL and SAT. Then they'll substitiute your SAT score for verbal part with your TOEFL score.

В том-то и дело, что они требуют и SAT, и TOEFL для всех transfer students. По TOEFL у меня высокий бал, но им этого не достаточно. Да и словарь на SAT-е гараздо более навороченый, чем на TOEFL.

И все-таки, есть шанс, что без SAT приймут?

Если они требуют SAT то они просто не будут рассматривать твою апликацию пока не получать SAT баллы. Можно также спросить: [b:5cfb76f754]Кто нибудь поступал в аспирантуру без GRE или GMATa?[/b:5cfb76f754] Интересно сколько таких наберётся.

SAT sucks :-), but get yourself "Princeton Review's Cracking the SAT" - very nice book.
I agree. Are you planning to get a full scholarship? Or loan.
