The reason I'm applying to most of those schools is because its conceivable I can still get a merit aid package (more you apply to the better the odds)
This is not true for the same reasons that applying to a large number of selective colleges does not give you correspondingly better 'odds' of admission:
1. The calculation of odds is based on the caveat of randomness. Neither college admission nor merit scholarships are random, some candidates are more desirable than others.
2. Between applying for admission and filling out separate merit applications for so many schools, neither will not be of as a high quality as possible due to time constraints.
SAT 2120: 740 CR, 690 Math, 690 Writing. I retook this in June and will post my updated scores when they are release expecting Math and CR to go up. |
SAT IIs: 750 Math II, 650 Physics. I'm retaking Math II in October and will take Bio/retake Physics
UW GPA 3.74
Why are Rice & WUSTL on your list?
Rice's CDS for 2010-11 has a 75% SAT level of enrolled fr at 2300. My guess is that WUSTL is higher. They only give rank, not gpa, but I don't believe that a 3.74 UW is close to the 95% range for either of these schools.
