Hi, I have applied to Yale, Stanford, Princeton, Dartmouth and UPenn through Questbridge’s Early Decision program. When I sent in my application, I sent in my first score of 31. I just got back my new scores and I got a 31 again, but it was because the place I took it the second time provided a poor testing environment. However, my superscore is now 34. I know that if I take it again, I’ll get a better score. Should I still send my new scores in hopes that they’ll superscore them or at least look at each individual section, or should I just retake it in time for the regular decision deadline and use the better score for regular decision? UPenn makes it clear on their page that they take the best scores from every section.
Thank you for your time,
BYU-Idaho reviews applicants in five main areas: church endorsements, academic achievement, seminary, extracurricular activities, and essays. Students are expected to be worthy of a full endorsement from their church leaders and commit to abide by the Honor Code. Academic achievement will be represented by grade point average and performance on standardized tests. BYU-Idaho expects students to graduate from seminary and have a positive seminary recommendation. Applicants will also be reviewed on their extracurricular involvement and essay responses.
The 9/11 terrorist attacks were the deadliest in world history. Table 3 gives the same statistics as Table 2, except that it excludes the 9/11 attacks. Excluding the 9/11 terrorists and Zacarias Moussaoui, who intended to participate but could not because he was in jail at the time, 134 foreign-born terrorists entered the United States of a total of billion visas issued in these categories from 1975 through 2015. That means that only percent of all foreigners who entered on these visas were terrorists. For each terrorist, excluding the 9/11 attackers, million visas were granted to nonterrorist foreigners.
