What SAT II Scores Are Needed for Cornell, Princeton, & Penn?
If you are a first-generation-to-college applicant and/or come from a disadvantaged or highly unusual background–or if you have surmounted significant obstacles on your road to college–admission officials will give you some wiggle room when it comes to test scores. But, even so, the admission folks will probably be looking for some otherdistinction besides your impressive academic record. Typically, leadership in school organizations doesn’t stand out at the Ivies as such a distinction. But it is truly impossible for me–an Internet “dean” (who is not actually a dean of anything) to responsibly assess your admission odds based on the little information I have here.
Note, however, that the majority of successful Ivy applicants submit more than the two required Subject Tests, with most of their scores well into the 700s, but –again–a student’s background can play a role in test results and, thus in their admission verdicts.
