I've appeared for my ISC 12th exams this year.
I kinda woke up REALLY late to this US college admissions stuff, so I have not given SAT or any such exam yet.
My question is, if I take a gap year,and give SAT and apply to colleges this year, will I be able to make it to Class of 2018 in some good univ?
I mean, do the good colleges EVEN CONSIDER applications from students who take a gap year? What is the general trend? Do most students apply while they are in 12th, or do a considerable number also apply after 12th, like me, and still get in?
Also, am I at a really HUGE disadvantage compared to the applicants who will appear for their 12th exams this year?
