Do you submit your weighted gpa or unweighted gpa?
This goes for any college in general
Rejected. Dang it.
Anyone looking for a little more info about getting into NU hmu -- Attending this fall. My information will prove most relevant to white males like myself; however, that's no reason to not say hello. Find me on Reddit and I'll be more likely to respond, username "AhrenGxc3"
im applying to northwestern and im a white/middle-eastern female..any advice?
Im trying to apply what advice do you have.
Is anyone retaking the SATs January for Northwestern?
how does a 2230 SAT and 3.9 (unweighted)GPA rack up at Northwestern?
For those of you who have applied ED...Do you find out ON Dec 15 or do they notify you rolling?
i heard they notify you a bit earlier than Dec 15, like starting from the 10th or 11th-ish? but the release date varies from each year.
chill out, i typed that right after i got rejected, probability is addictive btw, but anyway, honestly until you experience rejection next yr, and you will experience it, dont tell me how to feel and just shut the hell up
srandhawa1 I find it ridiculous that you think you had a 99.99% chance of getting into atleast one school. These percentages are not additive, and the ONLY school this site messed up on is JHU. They were right on your other 10 schools. 10/11 is not that bad, so you should grow up, and get over it!
If you multiply all the chances of not getting in to each school then subtract it from 1, 99.9997 sounds about right with 8 schools. Also, you can't be "right" with probability, and there are really only two cases where you can be wrong.
lrn2probability before being an ass
1) That's not what 'independent' means in probability.
2) I'm sure at this point we are aware of what you stated.
3) It was implied that we were basing things solely off the chances given on this site and ignoring any possible confounding factors.
another rejection for me, if you followed this site i woulda had a 99.9997% chance at one of my top eight choices which i woulda been thrilled with. Instead, im going to be headed to my state school where i really dont want to go, just shows how bullshit these chance things are.
I GOT IN! I'm white, poor and unqualified....but if was def. my art and music portfolio!
Sure, tell me. I'm a white male from California. Great SAT's, not so great GPA, but in all IB courses.
NU decisions were released today at 6:00 pm!
I have been nigh on obsessing over Northwestern for months. Definately my first choice!! Wish I could visit campus before april, tho :-/
if you check the page about the site it claims 80% for its statistics. aka take it with a grain of salt.
I don't know...my chances at Northwestern on this site are about 45% better than the college office at my school told me, so...
my chances for northwestern are really high and I would seriously consider going, but I was wondering if anyone knew how accurate this prediction is....
Can someone tell me how accurate this is?
they changed the algorithm
IT CHANGED FROM 50% TO 26%???
WHY DID IT CHANGE SO MUCH SO SUDDENLY?????
95.2% ? I don't think so.
How do my chances improve if I apply ED? And why does this not show on my tracker?
northeastern and northwestern are unrelated schools, so if one has a certain school, the other may or may not
if nw has a school of pharmacy b/c northeastern has one so mb...?
Northwestern considers both equally; my cousin never took the ACT and got in on upper-end grades and great SAT scores.
My chances at UChicago are 41%, but for NW it's 32%...
The 25th, 50th, and 75th percentiles for BOTH accepted and rejected students in ALL categories (GPA, SAT, Selectivity Index) is lower at NW than at Chicago. So why does the site give me less of a chance of acceptance?
I was under the impression that the site only used GPA, SAT, and Selectivity Index in its chancer...
We can all agree on this: just do well on the ACT and SAT. I don't know why applied, really.
i got in and i didn't take the ACT so that must not be the case...
look up a conversion chart for SAT and ACT scores and convert your ACT score into SAT and use that to judge your chances. I also did really well on the ACT but not so good on the SAT.
I definitely agree. The ACT is being accepted at schools across the US. At my school in IL, the ACT is our test for NCLB, so the juniors prepare for the ACT and not the SAT.
why isn't there a plot for the ACT? the only thing that matters at NU is the ACT and i dominated that... but not so much the SAT
