Queens PSE

A photo of nicka94 nicka94
Ok two quick questions about the PSE

1) How much exactly do the admissions crew value the PSE and EC's and whatnot? To my understanding it is that they only really put weight on it if you're borderline on the cutoff. I don't know, thats just what I've read/been told.

2) What do they do with the referee? Do they contact them, or is it a formality? I'm guessing that it's only used if someone's PSE is ridiculous.

True on both counts. Unless you applying to commerce or con-ed or some other competitive program, the PSE isn't all that important unless you're borderline.

Ok well I have an 86% right now.... It's likely to go up but is that considered borderline? eINFO says that the Queens Science program is 84+. I've heard thought that its actually closer to 88

Yes, 86 would probably be considered pretty close to the cutoff for science. Definitely write the best PSE that you can.
