Get decent exam scores, write meaningful application essay, sameMar 27 2013Physics
Get decent exam scores, write meaningful application essay, same as for any University. I took SAT exam a few months after immigrating to USA, and it was good enough to get into Stony Brook. The score threshold is not very high, and they accept about half of the applicants I think, so you should have no problems getting in
SAT: 1800 Male
