Uhm, not really. Any good college or at least somewhat decent college will request an SAT score. I did something like that but not with a community college. That's a bit too much. Well basically I barely passed high school but did well on the SATs. So I went to a decent city college and then transferred to NYU. The only thing that got me accepted was my SAT score and the fact that I did really well the first year in that city college.

SATs are a good indicator of logical reasoning capabilities. It's somewhat of an indicator of intelligence. That's why colleges use it.


I beg the differ dude. I graduated 10th of my class and went to a community college (shame on me huh). Some of my (high school and college) counselors and teachers actually advised to take this possible path. I know that they wouldn't screw with me. Plus, I have some personally reasons (not test anxiety, nor social problems, nor depression) why I can't take the SATs. So, I had no other choice but not to take the SATs.

Transferring credits with a community college can actually get me in a university faster than the SATs, as said by my teaches and counselors. I guess it would be different for California and New York.


Well that explains a lot! Really! The reason I commented on your post was because it seemed like badly thought out plan. I shouldn't have assumed that you had no reasons behind your post.

But the fact still remains that most universities require an SAT score. I still don't understand how a educational institute will accept an application with just a graduating class rank. Big name schools look at the rank but they know that, ultimately, the rank is nothing but a number within a population that may as well be retarded. Believe me, the local high schools around my area have garbage going there. Had I gone there I would have either a) graduated on top or b) become a thug like the rest of them. And yes I would have became a great thug. Perhaps the best!

I'm not saying that your graduating 10th in your class is worth nil, just pointing out the superficiality of the fact if seriously considered. Sorry if you took it the wrong way!

I don't really care about my rank. I am just pointing out that a person like me who averaged a 4.00 the whole high school years, with some honors and A.P. classes, wasted those years to just go to a dinky community college. I have my reasons.


Impressive! with AP courses as well! Good luck young padawn
