International student (Chinese)
SAT: 2190 CR670 MATH800

I got admitted to UIUC with a major in environmental science and UMass Amherst with a major in CS (Chancellor Award&Honor Program)

I choose CS as my major of all my applications. My alternate major is Psychology and Environmental Science

School I applied to:
UC Berkeley
UChicago
UCLA
UCSD (This is also good for me)
UC Irvine
NYU
Boston University
Brandeis University
Cornell University
Brown University
UPenn (Conducted the alumni interview, went okay)
Carnegie Mellon University (I don't think I even have a chance)
University of Michigan - Ann Arbor
Georgia Institute of Technology
University of Wisconsin - Madison
Stanford University (DREAM SCHOOL)
Washington University at St.Louis

Thanks For Helping!! :) :) :)

    UMass CS > UIUC ES (especially for someone who wants to ... study CS).

    UC Berkeley
    UChicago
    UCLA
    Cornell University
    Brown University
    UPenn
    Carnegie Mellon University
    Stanford University
    Washington University at St.Louis

    => unlikely, but you may get into a couple. You're competitive academically but like for all of these, it's a lottery and it'll depend on your essays and recommendations. If you're not applying for financial aid, it'll help at UChicago, Brown, UPenn, Stanford, and WashU and may help at UCB and UCLA. If you're applying for financial aid, you have to make it through another selection round and so few make it it's impossible to predict.

    UCSD
    UC Irvine
    NYU
    Boston University
    Brandeis University
    University of Michigan - Ann Arbor
    Georgia Institute of Technology
    University of Wisconsin - Madison
    => you'll get into 5-6 of these.

    So, I'm betting you'll get into 6-7 if you need FA, and about 10 if you don't. Not a bad result at all considering how selective these universities are, and how many Chinese applicants there are in every pool.
    Do keep us updated with your actual results.

    UCSD and UCI are for sure acceptances. UCLA and UCB might be a high match and a lower reach since being an international applicant is more advantageous. Stanford is unpredictable but its possible with your stats and ECs. Your chances at CMU are higher than those at Stanford based on stats. UMich and UW Madison are also probably acceptances. Ivies may be a lot harder to get into but your ECs may help there. Best of Luck!

    @SriCS123 Thank you very much!! I wish I could get into Stanford but that seems unlikely... Best of luck to you too :)
