Located in suburban New Jersey, Princeton University is a very diverse college. Princeton offers a wide variety of majors and extracurricular activities. It is a very good school for people who pursue academic success. The expectations are high though, most of Princeton’s students have a 3.5 to a 4.0 GPA and a SAT score range of 2000-2200. Getting accepted to Princeton is hard, but it’s worth the effort. Princeton is a very good place to live. During my recent to Princeton, I enjoyed the beautiful landscape the college offered. The architecture in the college is very artistic. Living on Princeton’s campus would be very pleasant. Overall, Princeton is a very good college and is ranked number 2 in America.

I agree. The stats in your article are off. I know for a fact that the average GPA and SAT score of students from my school who are accepted into Princeton is 104.67 and 2357, respectively. While this may not reflect the overall average that Princeton accepts, I highly doubt that it would delve in too much lower than 4.0 GPA and an SAT score of 2200.

Good article, but it's a little inaccurate.  Truth is that about 50% of people admitted into Princeton had over a 2300 on their SATS.  2000 is on the lower side.  If you have a 3.5 GPA, it's going to be tough getting into Princeton.  The ideal GPA is 4.0.   But, it's very possible you could get in with 2000 SAT score or 3.5 GPA if you have good extra cirriculars.
