    @omgBrown Ditto...
    I also have a sister (currently a sophomore) at Brown. I will be attending ADOCH (also UPenn’s Admitted Student event) next week - Class of 2022.

    Congratulations! Sounds like your son had fabulous choices. May I ask where you're from? Public or private school, city or other -- general location? Thank you!

    If you think you should qualify, appeal by emailing and asking for a second look. We did that and cleared up some questions and got a better offer. Worth a try.

    ^^I did the same to appeal financial aid. Sent a nice letter and met with an aid officer (not sure if the meeting made a difference) and they ended up increasing my university scholarship by 8k. I was elated

    Accepted: Brown, UCLA, Harvey Mudd College, and King's College London.

    Waitlist: Harvard, Caltech, Princeton, and Cal. (I'll keep you guys updated)

    Rejected: MIT (I applied EA and was deferred and then rejected).

    Withdrawn: McGill and UCSB.

    Other: Imperial College London (No idea what's up with them).

    SAT: 1550 (790 M 760 ERBW)
    SAT II: 800 M2, 800 PHY, 770 USH
    GPA (UW): 3.97

    School: Private Prep
    EC's: Cross Country/Track, Quizbowl, Math Team, and Research.
    Hooks: Good research in Physics, with published projects connected to a respected University and Prof.

    Comments:
    I was a bit surprised by the results. I wholeheartedly thought I was a much better candidate for Caltech or MIT than any of the Ivies. I honestly thought it was likeliest that I would get rejected from all of the Ivies far before Caltech/MIT.

    @help2017 Thanks. My son attended a public school in a suburb about 40 minutes outside NYC. It's not a nationally ranked school or anything... in fact it suffers from inadequate funding, but has some excellent teachers nonetheless. He was not a URM or a 1st generation applicant.
