Hey! If you check out the collegeboard website (the people who administer the SATs) you can find most of that info

Yale: http://collegesearch.collegeboard.com/search/CollegeDetail.jsp?collegeId=4123&profileId=1
Harvard: http://collegesearch.collegeboard.com/search/CollegeDetail.jsp?collegeId=1251&profileId=1
Princeton: http://collegesearch.collegeboard.com/search/CollegeDetail.jsp?collegeId=4221&profileId=1

You want to go under the "admission" tab for H&Y. However, Princeton doesn't take transfer students : http://www.princeton.edu/admission/applyingforadmission/faq/eligibility/#comp000046cc511c0000000cbc18e5

less than 10% of people get admitted, so good luck!

In high school I didn't think much of attending an Ivy League school but now that i'm in undergrad I kind of regret it. Lately I've been thinking of applying after doing quite well my first semester in undergrad (GPA was 3.93). My current major is Biomedical Science (BSc). Just a few questions for those who've been through this process:

1. Do I still have to write the SAT?
2. What do I need to send them?
3. How high does my gpa have to be?
4. Would they still require alot of EC?

I'm thinking of applying to Yale and Princeton, maybe Harvard depending on my situation...

Any help would be great, thanks :)



Just apply to a bunch of them if you are going to go through the hassle of writing SATs, etc. Your GPA is very good (although I don't know what school you're at). Keep that up, and judging by your GPA, you have the intellect to destroy the SAT, but definitely devote some time to prep for it (like on the side).

I must mention though, if you are planning on medical school and you aren't a dual citizen or permanent resident of the US you might as well just stay in Canada. It is incredibly difficult to get into a US medical school as an international, even if Canadian. With your GPA (as long as you keep it up) you should get into a number of medical schools in Canada with a good MCAT and great ECs. So, just keep that in mind.

Good luck and I hope it all works out!
