I remember that somebody wanted to see the stats of accepted people, and, even thoguh I think that stats, in more than jsut the sense of SATs, are fairly indicative of an acceptance/ non-acceptance, I don't think that it's impossible to be accepted with stats out of the norm. So, I will start with mine from last year, if they'd help at all:

I was wondering what you guys think my chances are at:

I applyed for Chemistry/Biology Pre-med.

SATii: 680chem,670 Math IC, 660 US History, 650writing, 640 Ecol Bio, 4 on AP US exam and Bio exam, thoguh the Bio exam wasn't graded until last summer, so Colby never got it

Weighted GPA:94.79... pretty rigorous courseload (not sure what defines rigorous)
Class rank: 21/~465 (only top 400 were ranked though)
