Hey all! My name is Fatoumata and I attend Princeton University! It was not my standardized test scores that got me in. This is not me telling anyone not to prepare for these test because it could benefit you tremendously. I tried my hardest and yes my scores were still low. Your test scores alone should not discourage you from applying to your dream school! I got into Princeton not through my test scores, but through my versatility in my extracurriculars. I had so much to offer. I did an engineering internship in 2020, I volunteered in different countries like Ecuador and Korea. I played Varsity Basketball, and so much more. All of these things colleges want to see! Colleges love to see students excel in academia but they also want to see your other interest. All of my activities helped lead to my acceptance.
