Chance for Vandy/any other Ivy League?
My parents are really encouraging me to apply to an Ivy League school even though it's really competitive. I know my chances are slim and I shouldn't bother applying but chance me, please. If you see know any Ivy League schools that I might have a decent chance, I would greatly appreciate it if you list the school and the odds.
Vanderbilt University is another one of my reach schools and more closer towards a dream school. I live in Memphis.
Asian, male. Will desperately need financial aid. Father has bachelors, mother has just a high school diploma. Their net income is ~$50-60k.

PS: If you know of any high-mid to top tier colleges (private or university or public) in the Midwest or South and you think I'd make a great candidate please let me know. I'm still trying to discover good colleges. Preferably a medium sized school. It doesn't have to be close but it is more ideal.
