  3. Your grades and scores are great. However, SBU only accepts about 40 percent of its applicants.

  4. When you say 1690 on the SAT, how is that divided up? What was your score ...

    ... on the math section?
    ... on the reading section?
    ... on the writing section?

  7. So ... pretty much even.

    There are some schools that place more emphasis on the math and reading than the writing. You should check out Stonybrook's website and see what they say in their admisssions section. Check both the incoming freshman requirements AND the transfer student requirements, even though you're not transferring. It'll give you an idea if they consider the 3 scores evenly or if they emphasize 2.

  8. I checked and it said they accept scores between 1660 and 1980, so I don't think they really look at writing. And for the transfer students they don't look at sat or act scores

  9. Your three scores total 1690.

    Make sure you have a really good personal essay ... what sets you apart ... why you would be an excellent addition to their student body ...

    What other schools are you applying to?
