Preparing for College

Will Low SAT's Keep Student Out of Dream Colleges?

Question: I am a Black female with an SAT score of 810 (math,reading); 1200 (math,reading,writing), I take IB classes with a cumulative GPA of a little bit over 83 and I'm involved in extracurricular activities such as Upward Bound. I want to know if I can get into really good colleges like NYU, Fordham University, Albany University etc. When I look at these schools' SAT score requirements it makes me feel like I shouldn't even waste my time applying. I'm normally an optimistic person, but when it comes to finding that special college for ME, I feel like bad luck is written all over me. Please be honest and tell me if I could possibly have a chance of getting into at least 1 of these schools. Thanks

"The Dean" does not usually give admissions "chances" because there are too many factors that determine college acceptances and thus it would be irresponsible to predict your outcomes without knowing a lot more about you.
