Give me a chance! I'l give you a cookie! :)
Hi all! Apple here.
I apologize if this thread seems familiar, b/c I had one for EA Yale earlier. But now, given my deferral, I'd like to post my college list and see if my stats fit my colleges okay (or if I'm grossly overestimating myself...). I'd like to make 1 or 2 last minute additions, because my parents are okay with shelving out the money, and I'd like to make sure I get into the right colleges.
Suggestions and comments will be duly rewarded with sugar and eternal thanks!
