    be an olsen twin. although I'm sure they didn't apply there and wouldn't have gone even if accepted.

    but realisticly speaking, the thing that will get you into yale, besides having good sats and a good gpa, and dedicating ec's, will be a hook which can be represented in your family background, talent, etc. Essays will also be more important. I personally wouldn't try to worry about getting a 1600 or scoring that high on your SAT's because everyone there will have high sat scores, they won't be impressed just to see another 4.0 1600 student.

    I can't emphasize how important a hook is. Having a real good hook will get you in even if you have like a 1300.

    Yale? I checked your stats too. You need almost perfect SAT Is, SAT IIs, GPA, and better than top 4% of your class to have a chance to make it.
