Hi I'm applying to these two schools and they are my hardest schools. I thought Brown was harder to get into but Amherst has a very low acceptance rate also, and from all of the ED people who got rejected with pretty similar stats to me, it feels like they very suddenly got super competitive. I thought that this school would be more doable than the Ivy but now I'm not sure if I have a chance at either.
I have 2310 sat, 790 bio sat and 800 sat lit but I saw so many people who eded with similar stats and got rejected and my ec's arent even that good. Has amherst suddenly jumped in selectivity? Or have I just been severely overestimating myself?
Should I even assume that I might do better at getting into Brown or just give up and cry in a hole by myself?
