LOL my thoughts exactly.

Even our university grading system is way simpler. What's all this about a 4.0 GPA?

Just get 60% for a 2.1 degree classification that gets you a job almost anywhere or 70% and above for a 1st class degree which is the best you can get and gives you a slight edge over others. Why is everything so complicated with the Americans?! lol
LOL I know right. In Britland, I've heard everything is soo simple...it's the same in India. Take AIEEE/JEE/ other entrance exams and get into collegeLOL These lame American colleges want fudgin' all-rounders and shist! Angry(pardon my language)

Only on TV shows, people are great singers, great students, great football/basketball/baseball/soccer/tennis [whatever other sports] players. It drives me insane on how they pay attention to sports and music.

It is definitely simpler than the system in place in US and India. Colleges and unis over here don't even ask you to sit any entrance exams. The only time you'll sit them is if you're applying to Oxford/Cambridge. If you're a medicine or dentistry student then you have to sit the UKCAT exams and get above a certain mark in order to be considered but those 2 courses are the only real exceptions. In fact 90% of unis don't even interview you before offering you a place. They simply look at your college grades and your personal statement (again with the exception of some courses)

In a way though, it kinda sucks that they don't interview people because then you get people like this..

I got a 2100 when I took the SAT. I could have taken it again and done better, but I was too lazy and wasn't really aiming for an Ivy League education at the time. But retaking is definitely worth it if Ivy League is the goal. Otherwise, years from now, your score will just be a number. (Debo, are you listening?)

And Sarina, I'd say it depends on your university actually. My university has the following criteria:

Honors Designations:
3.75 to 4.0 GPA Summa Cum Laude (with highest honors)
3.50 to 3.74 GPA Magna Cum Laude (with high honors)
3.25 to 3.49 GPA Cum Laude (with honors)


However, they are changing it to the following starting next year, and I feel REALLY sorry for students graduating then!

Honors Designations:
3.90 to 4.0 GPA Summa Cum Laude (with highest honors)
3.70 to 3.89 GPA Magna Cum Laude (with high honors)
3.50 to 3.69 GPA Cum Laude (with honors)

Debo, who told you that a 1950 was a bad score? If you're trying to get into an Ivy League school, yeah you should retake it and do better. But if you're planning on going to a state school - you'll be fine for the most part. However, don't give up! If you got that the first time, just take it once more and I'm sure you'll be able to achieve a >2200!

Which section did you score the lowest in?
My parents and myself, plus I googled Ouch Well, I won't get into Ivy League, but no harm in trying eh? Tongue So yeah, I need to bump up my SAT score, as my GPA's in a mess. Plus, it's not like I've not done extracurriculars, but they aren't a lot. And I have absolutely no time, both during the summer and next year, 'cause next year I'm taking friggin' hard AP's...in the summer, I have 2 internships to attend to...I just hope those internships can help in my college resume.Cry Thanks for the advice!


YESS!! No harm in trying at all. I will let you in on a secret - hardly anyone in RL knows this, but I actually applied to Harvard when I was a senior. I knew I wouldn't get in, and even if I did, it would have been ridiculously expensive for my parents to pay for, but I applied anyway. It was a "just to see" experiment if you will. I was actually invited for an interview, which I also gave, and although I didn't get in, I still have the rejection letter hidden away in one of my folders. Sometimes, you just have to do things for yourself. Just to say you did them. :) So by all means, go for it!

And m'dear - those internships will count as extracurricular activities!

Let me know if you need anything else. :)

I just noticed the change in RTH colour ! Checked and found that she's no longer a member of the  DMDT! You had a good inning as a Mod Sarina, with some ups and down. You did very well as a Mod.Clap With the law keeping constraint gone are we going to see a more fiery  RTH unleashed on DM LOL That could make things tough for the next Mod!

So the onus of maintaining law and order falls on Souro now! Wishing you all the best ! Who is Aahaana ? Havent seen her on DM yet!
