  1. This may be quite a retarded question, but have you checked the IB Guide for the EE? All subjects have really specific guidelines as to what is or isn't within their subject bracket, and if any topic seems to fit into more than one subject, in terms of succeeding well with your EE, you're not looking good! If it doesn't go down the straight and narrow, it's going to be penalised for it. I haven't lived in the US. At least not for more than about 8 weeks total in my life on various holidays! I'm fully aware of that. Which is why my teacher and I are going to fix it. I know they have really s
  2. Where are you thinking of applying? I have a feeling that's why you're asking this. If IB is the reason as to why your grades haven't been good, then maybe talk to the IB coordinator or your counselor to see if there's any way to bring them up. I understand the whole GPA thing, but I think if you can work something out, it'll be nice in the long run! I think it may be better to ask your advisers to see where you want to go, then you can figure out what you should do.
  3. Thankfully not for any length of time (no offense.) Haha, well, I think I do actually take offense to that (just a tad). I have both an American and Canadian citizenship, but I do consider myself more American. A very liberal, open-minded American, at that. I think you may be grouping Americans in one huge group. There are good ones here too! lol sorry >< When I said no offense, I meant that I didn't mean my particular viewpoint as a personal indictment against you. I hardly know you! My opinion is more of the US in general, so it is very much an over-generalization as well as over-sim

  5. You guys are fantastic. An intellectual discussion is exactly what I was looking for! I'm just going to group all of my replies up into one simple message. My teacher and I have been discussing where exactly this would fit. She wants it to be under Social Anthropology, Sociology or Psychology, depending which route I take. She'll dwell on that for a while. Media is a huge portion of it though. I'm not discussing the people who have a distaste for organized religion, either. That's a different thing. Those that do, dislike Islam for some different reasons. Hijaab isn't technically necessary. T
  6. your SAT score is quite good. you could always take it again to boost it a little more! that way, your total SAT score will just be the highest score in each section. it's worth a shot. as for the subjects, i'd say maybe take them both again. 750 is pretty much the baseline for those schools. my brother goes to an ivy league, so, i'm basing some of this off of him.
  7. I know many of the Ivy Leagues look for students who have taken the most rigorous courses. IB would count towards that.
  8. Well, it really depends. I'm not trying to freak you out here or anything, but my brother goes to Harvard, and his application was something like this: National Merit Scholarship Finalist 2390 on SAT 800s on 2 SAT subjects, 790 on one IB, with diploma Valedictorian All - State Texas Bassoonist for 3 years President of Latin Club, Math Club and some (a lot of) other stuff. Promise I'm not trying to freak you out! I happen to be getting a lot of lectures by him (frequently) about applying to colleges. I think you should really shoot for a 2250+, do well in IB, have good SAT subject test scores
  9. Have you tried researching the UCB site? : http://students.berkeley.edu/admissions/freshmen.asp?id=55&navid=N I'm sure there's something there that can help you!
  10. Mahuta ♥ -- As am I! I feel like I'm going to get really emotional while doing my research, but I do agree! I also feel as though being muslim ourselves, we're scared of doing something. Because, most of the time, that something is suicide bombing. There are extremists in every religion, sadly... emilynev -- You're absolutely right! I really wish more people would realize that both religions aren't all that different. But, how much can you teach a person that's unwilling to learn? :/
  11. Hey everyone! I've finally gotten around to deciding what my EE topic will be about. It's basically researching how "Islamophobia" has become socially accepted in Western [i.e. in the States] society (or if it hasn't; more research to come). The reason I started this thread was to see what you guys felt. I'm not necessarily asking what your view is on the religion, but what your view is on society's view of the religion. I understand how some people fear their safety, which is rather understandable, but to what extent? I live in a pretty conservative area of the United States (West Texas, to
