Re: Motivation for Tests/ Papers. For all Uni/College/Highschool students.
As long as you are applying to non math/science degree you should be ok. Because 740/790 is pretty amazing! Given 3.0 gpa could be better; but you got the SAT scores which help.
I think in the category list of Yes/No; you will be in the most likely/maybe category
It goes- Great gpa/great SAT/ACT- Yes
Great GPA/ prett good SAT- 80% yes
3.5 gpa/mediocre SAT- probably maybe
average gpa 3.0/ good SAT probably maybe. it will help if you got a goodish essay, plus extracurricular activities.
Average gpa/average SAT- this is when they probably look at extracurricular and more deeply at your essay's.
It seems you will be ok, but if you get a letter saying please send in an updated transcript, you are on the fence. That happened with me, but thankfully I got in.
I pretty much just met the requirements of the school, so it was kinda iffy there. But I had the extracurricular activities to boot/ being an Eagle Scout.
Also make sure you apply to at least 4 schools and don't do it last minute!
1. Favorite/Hardest school
2. Kind of on par with favorite school
3. Easier school
4. Some local community college
-This is just to ensure you have plans A,B,C,D just in case. Because some college, is better then no college.
I support Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Del Potro.
Why? Because I love tennis plain and simple
One thing people need to understand about this so-called weak era is that it was 'weak' for Federer on HC and grass and for Nadal on clay (Federer on clay too Nadal apart) because they were so much better than anyone else, for any outsider the era couldn't possibly be any harder, during 5+ years you had to either beat the best grass/HC player ever or the best clay player ever in every single Slam just to get 1 Slam title.
