Will applying a year early hurt my chances? Do i even have a chance a year early? Also, if i don't make it in during junior year, will it hurt my app senior year? I'm talking specifically about MIT, my dream school. Here are my stats, if it makes a difference:
Rank: Something like top 7%?
SAT: Been getting 2350ish on practice tests
SAT II: None yet, gonna take Math and Physics, confident 800 on math, prolly between 750 and 800 for physics.
AP's: 5 on calculus BC (5 AB subscore), 5 World History
I play violin and piano, have some piano awards, just in orchestra for violin
Quiz Bowl Captain
Knowledge Master Captain
Fed Challenge Captain, 3rd place in regional competition
A little involvement in student government
Random math awards
100 hours community service
JV Tennis (Will play varsity in the spring)
Participated in Governor's School
Participated in MathCamp 06
The reason I want to apply early is because i've already exhausted the math classes at my school, and I'm taking math at a nearby community college. The learning environment in my school, and in the college aren't very good, and I'd like to be around people that like math as much as I do. Thanks for reading!
