Please chance me for Stanford? I'll chance you as well!
I am currently a junior at a highly regarded american school in the middle east, and I am looking to major in mathematics.
Here are my stats/qualities:
GPA:3.822 after 10th grade, bound to go up because of 2 APs this year and 3/4 the next year
Class Rank: 10 of 116
Very rigorous course load
SAT1: taking it in January, expecting a 1900 first time, will aim for a 2150 the second time after doing some intensive preparation
SAT2's: taking math2 at the end of this year, aiming for a 750+, will take biology in October of senior year(next year), aiming for a 700+
This year: Stats and Econ this year (expecting a 5 on stats and maybe a 4 and a 5 on macro and micro)
Next Year: English (4), Cal A/B (5), Physics B (4/5), Biology (4)
Next years AP scores won't really matter since I will be applying ED.
OH and I also have a question.. Does Stanford require an official AP score report when we apply? Or can we just send our scores to them after their decision (for placement)

Does being young for your grade affect your chances in any way?(don't know if it will;the class of '10 is mostly born in 1992, while i was born in 1993).
