Hello,

What are your thoughts or impressions, if any, about Berea College, situated in the state of Kentucky, USA?

Do you think they would accept an elderly international student in his late 20s, requiring a full-ride scholarship, but ready to work anything to lessen the financial strain on the donors of the university? I have a not so great performance record, with a high school unweighted GPA of 3.7 from relatively-rigorous curriculum, 1850 SAT and a couple of meaningful out-of-class activities such as charities, past membership in People To People International and the occasional translation-related work experience.

I've heard Kentucky, as with all USA states, is generally pretty warm in terms of hospitality and has many friendly people. :)

All input will be appreciated. Thank you!

The maximum SAT score is 1600 https://magoosh.com/hs/sat/about-the-sat/2016/what-is-the-highest-score-on-the-new-sat-a-qa/

 

 

An elderly person is in his 60s.

Thank you for your response!
I meant 1850 out of 2400. My score without the Writing portion of SAT is 1200 points.
I wanted to say an older student, I apologise. :)

"An elderly international student in his late 20s"

 

Unless one is 10 or 12 years old or younger 'late 20s' is not generally considered elderly. I was 25 when i went to University and 29 when i graduated. Older than the average perhaps but not elderly !

 

By the bye, there is absolutely no point in bumping a topic in the General Topics area of BC as people will only post if they are interested in or amused by the topic. It is fair enough after a reasonable time interval - generally 48 hours - in the technical help sections.
