Well i took the SATs on December 4th, and I got the results back. I got a 1250. So that means I have to earn my ferrari through work :evil: . I got soooo mad. I really thought that I got over a 1300 and I would get to go to any college I want, and get a ferrari too. But now I cant get into Harvard, Yale, or Princeton because you have to have amazing SAT scores and great grades, and i only have great grades. But I still can get into the University of Pennsylvania. So in 30 years, i'm gonna be the only United States Senator with 15 Ferraris.

You have the spirit and earning the car via your own hard earned dollar will probably make you feel a lot better. Also UPenn isn't a bad school by any means.

Not so fast. There was a wonderful NPR spot on getting into college and the stress associated with it. In it the individual was saying that SAT and Grades aren't the only criteria. What schools are looking for is a perfect fit. Give it a listen:

With some hard work, which doesn't seem to bother you, you might still have a shot at one of those schools.

But, as the piece says look for the institution that's going to fit YOU best! You'll be much happier and I guarantee you, your grades and learning curve will be better because of it.

Don't give up! Also, don't forget about transferring into one of those schools after the first year or so at your other school if you don't make it in.

Thanks for the help. I was talking about the academic side of admissions into ivy league schools. I have a good feeling now that I could go to them. I have already visited and these places look perfect for me. The learning environment, and the towns, and just everything seems perfect.
