I was just rejected from MIT (completely expected), Northwestern (minor surprise), and UCLA (surprised), and waitlisted at UChicago.
The rest of my schools are also very selective - Ivies, Stanford (lol), Rice etc. (I am into a couple safeties already - Northeastern and UCSD) - and I've kind of lost hope.
Basics (figured someone would ask anyway)
GPA - 3.9 / 4.35
ACT - 35
SAT II - 800, 740, 750
Varsity Athlete (20hrs/week 44wks/yr)
Internship at local university (published)
relatively limited service
other clubs and minor IB stuff
Just wondering what anyone else thinks.
