Will you chance me for Ivy League Schools? Pretty Please?
Long story short, I go to high school in the US, but am considered an international student.
I need aid, so I will be applying to all the schools that are need-blind towards international students: Yale, Harvard, Princeton, MIT, Dartmouth, KAIST, Amherst, Williams, Middlebury
If I don't make any of these schools, I will most likely return to my home country and go to a native college.
SAT: 2390 (CR: 800, W:800, M:790) PSAT: 236
SAT II: Math II 800, Chem 800, Bio M 770, US History 800
APs: Taking Chem AP and US His AP next week, taking 5 APs as a senior next year
Class rank: 1% out of 350 kids
In school (ECs) :
-Varsity Track/ Cross Country for 3 years (will be captain next year, our school is extremely good at track, wins state sectionals almost every year) can run at DIII schools, but not at DI schools.
-President of Diversity Club at School (10, 11th grade)
Varsity Debate (10, 11th)
Math Travel Team (only 10 kids at the school are chosen for travel team), Captain
Peer Mentors (club that helps younger kids, get trained at community colleges before meeting with the kids)
Outside of School:
Volunteer at a local children's center (for children in need) - 300 hrs, got the President's Volunteer Award Silver
Violin- won an award for a radio center competition
Got into NJ Governors School, will be going this year
Will also be doing nanotechnology research with a professor at a local college
TSA Engineering Teams Competition, 4th in state
I guess my biggest flaw is the lack of ECs. They're pretty generic, and a majority of them are in-school :/
I also have no major awards, while many of the international students applying will have.
Do I have any chances for these schools as an international? What about as a US permanent resident?
