升請美國大學問題

我10年級開始來加拿大讀書

是在BC省某間私立學校

現在11年級

因為明年就要升請大學了所以很迷惘

我一直很想去美國讀大學

我想讀 biochemistry

可是因為還要考SAT 尤其很好的大學的話都要AP

所以覺得很困難'

我5月的時候會考SAT

AP方面我現在有拿Calculus 然後有在自修statistics和psychology

我10年級的平均約90

今年目前為止的平均約93

都是被英文拉低的

我11年級有拿bio chem physics japanese math english social

現在在上math 12和 AP calsulus

學校活動參與不多

outreach committee, peer tutor , basketball team manager

明年想自己創社團 Model United Nations 和會參加 rowing team

義工的話線在有在類似養老院的地方幫忙

最近還會找個在醫院的

暑假應該會去UT的medical camp或其他science camp

也想去south africa或india之類的地方volunteer 有關HIV的 project

第一個就是想請問各位大大以我這樣的成績和課外活動 大約可以讀那幾間比較好的學校?

我之前有和學校的advisor談過 他們都有問我說為什麼不留在加拿大

第二個問題是如果留在加拿大的話我有可能進得去Mc.Gill或 UT嗎?

我從小大到的有一間很想讀的學校,就是MIT, 不是只是因為他是一間很好的學校, 我從小一聽的這間學校我就覺得很想去, 而且一直沒有變過

想請問各位大大, 我有可能進MIT嗎?

    Well hello! fellow Canadian ;).

    我其實也才剛經歷這段過程, now that i'm accepted into Cornell ED for engineering. i'm pretty much done.

    其實申請美國大學是要從很久以前就開始準備的, 大部分的人從9年級開始,因為在 Common App 上面的課外活動都會要求你標明你的活動是從幾年即做起的, (if you start MUN next year for instance, 就有點像臨時抱佛腳那種感覺)

    You also need to report 5 academic awards. Since most academic competitions (ie: AMC 12, AIME, Chem Olympiad ...etc) takes place in Feb~April, it is already passed the app deadline. In other words, if you start worrying about these in Gr11, it's way too late.

    You only have 3 APs.

    I'll tell you my stats when i got in Cornell.

    Chem, Calc BC, Comp Sci A (5,5,5)

    Stats, Eng Lit, German, Econ Micro, Econ Macro, Physics B, Physics C (Mech). Physics C (E+M).

    95% average.

    and even with all these APs + 2280 SAT + a second year math course taken outside at UBC, i'd rather ED Cornell than have a longshot for MIT.

    The truth is, MIT took 3 kids last year from the WHOLE Canada. One of them being from my school in Vancouver, and the other 2 from Ontario.

    It's certainly great to have a goal or a dream, but seriously don't get your hopes up. There are plenty of other good engineering schools you can prob get in with a 90+ Canadian average (ie: Michigan, UIUC, Georgia Tech.)

    For Canadian schools, if you are applying to engineering, they only look at Math 12, Calc 12 (or AP), Chem 12, Phys 12, and English 12.

    If your average for these 5 courses is greater than 88+, i'd say you have a good chance for any schools in Canada (ie: waterloo, UT, McGill, UBC, Queens). Schools in Canada are much easier to get in, but at the same time much harder to graduate from cuz they weed out lots of freshman through harsh curves in introductory classes.

    字好小 :(

    老花眼~看不到

    SAT 考完再來討論~

    SAT2 也要去考 Bio and Chem and Physic~

    MIT,Sat和Sat2 要近滿分,全校前五名 ,二項以上國家級比賽名次,AP也有要求,說句實話高中四年總平均沒在96,97以上,要進全校前幾名,很難,93只是進national honor society 的學業成績門檻,又還再看領導能力,成就,義工,有些11年級課程選修條件,得是先加入national honor society。

    MIT學生沒有英文不好,更會自已找答案,MIT網站寫對SAT2,AP要求,入學還有什麼,你去看看,而能進那些和輔導員談,他會分析,真想進名校,就好好提高學業成績,
