 Mentee:
I am a junior now. Like what you said in your bio, I'm pretty frustrated about the whole college application process too. I really want to get into selective colleges esp Columbia/Stanford, but I'm not sure what to do next to help me with the process. My current gpa is 3.97 (we don't have APs so only unweighted gpa) and my mock SAT is around 1500(I'm taking a real one this December). For my extra curriculum, I play the Chinese zither and I've performed it in Carnegie hall for a competition. I was one of the finalists for an international music competition at Stanford too. I also do ballet in our local art college. For social experiences, I work at a law firm as a file clerk. I have been a TA for the math class at school and I'm taking the most advanced math class in junior year, which means I might go to a local college for my math class in senior year. Moreover, i speak Chinese and French too. I went to France for an exchange program earlier this year for two months through the connection of our high school. Do u have any further suggestions/advice on what I can do to improve? Btw I'm not doing all these FOR applying for college; I love all the things that I am doing and I have passion for them. I just need someone experienced and nice (like you! It's really nice of u to do this!) to guide me a little bit and help me with applying the colleges I like while I am still able to do the things I love. :):) hope you can have a little time to read through my long message ;) thank you!

Wow, have you started forming your resume yet because your credentials are so impressive!! Will you be taking the ACT as well?? I would recommend taking both SAT and ACT because most people tend to do better on one or the other.
 Mentee:
I am just starting off my junior year so I haven't stated to write my resume :) I might try to take the ACT in the future but I'll probably focus on the SAT since I'm not a speed-type person :D what do u think I need to get on the new one to be safer for super selective college? :):)
 Mentee:
Or do u have any suggestions? ;) I need experienced guide like you to help a bit hhπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»
 Mentor:
Are you asking what score you need to get on the SAT to get into Columbia/Stanford?
 Mentee:
Yeah...I know there isn't an absolute line but to be safe what's the range please?
 Mentor:
The average composite score is 2210, so anything above that would give you a good chance.
 Mentor:
And Columbia's is 2215
 Mentee:
Ok! Thank you
 Mentor:
If you ever have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask :).
