    Seeing what you've gotten into so far and your amazing EC's (like what howd you start a consulting firm in high school??? What do you do?) you have a great shot at every other school. I'd guess admit for all except Stanford, Harvard, and Yale because those are ALWAYS a crapshoot but you still have an amazing shot.

    if you mind me asking did you get 2nd at NSDA nats? Or a national circuit tournament.

    @MaizeScream Thanks for the input!

    The consulting firm I started up with a friend/business partner who I used to work for because we had a similar vision and complementary skill sets. We help startups with high-tech/complicated products and services create narrative pitches that make their company more accessible to less tech-savvy audiences and investors.

    I was referencing NCFL nats, I also went far in NSDA but don't think I put that on apps -- I don't expect people to be familiar with all of the different circuits we have, I even get lost sometimes

    Chanced back!

    My predictions:

    Deny: Hard to tell but I'd guess one or two Ivy Leagues - probably Yale
    Waitlist: Vanderbilt, McKenna, UPenn Huntsman, Harvard
    Admit: W/ specifically your entrepreneurship experience, I think you have a real good shot at Stanford, Brown & the rest!

    @Kimo212 Thanks! Stanford would be kind of a dream come true although I know my chances are pretty slim :)

    @CactusUsername They're slim for everyone but honestly you are qualified enough regardless of the outcome!
