I honestly don't rememberAug 25 2011Business - Management and Administration
I honestly don't remember. I may have applied early action or early decision to SIT. I presume this would improve your chance of being accepted. Do good in school, eat your fruits and veggies, and work hard I guess.

To get into this University, I scored EXTREMELY wellMar 29 2011Computer Science
To get into this University, I scored EXTREMELY well on my math SATs (I didn't enter my SAT score because I do not remember what my score on the Reading and Writing sections were). I got a 790 on the Math section, and I also took the level two subject test, and got an 800 on that. I participated in math related competitions in high school, and went to the national level of the competition three years in a row. I also got mostly As in high school, and got a first degree black belt in tae kwon do. If you want to go to this school, I recommend you work on doing extremely well in at least one extracurricular activity, perhaps two. Don't skip around, being in one club for six month, then another for a year, pick one or two, and focus on them. Every little bit of achievement helps. Also, be very careful about who you ask to write letters of recommendation. If the school changes your advisor in your senior year, to someone who does not know you at all, and you've known your previous advisor for three years, you know they know you well, and will write a good review for you... go to the old advisor's office and ask them to write your review, and ignore the new advisor because if he or she doesn't even know what you look like, they aren't likely to be able to write the kind of review you want for a college application.

Make sure you've done some activities in high schoolOct 27 2009Computer Science
Make sure you've done some activities in high school (preferably related to your major), whether via a formal project or personal project or not, and be excited about what you do.

I had a 3.8 GPA in high school and scored an 1100 (out of 1600) on my SATs.

Stevens is usually pretty flexible about high school grades, and they interview borderline applicants before extending offers. If asked to join the STEP program, DO IT. It's fun.
