    bringing up this thread- not many patterns so far. Can we see more about extracurriculars?

    I should think that 2400/36 scorers should be AT LEAST as involved in ECs and proficient in essay writing as a group compared to the rest of the pool, so it's still pretty shocking that only two people on this thread have been accepted at HYP so far. I think this is the most competitive year in college admissions ever.

    2370 (close enough)-Accepted to Stanford and Cornell, Rejected by Princeton and MIT. Bear in mind I'm an URM (Black). High test scores don't guarantee you as much as they used to. Admissions this year were crazy and don't expect them to get any easier.

    2400 on the SAT

    Accepted: Tufts, U British Columbia, U Chicago, Georgetown, Brown

    Rejected: Harvard

    Waitlisted: Swarthmore

    There were a lot of kids at my school who got into similar schools, and they didn't have a perfect. It's a nice plus on an application, but most college admissions officers are smart enough to know that a good test taker isn't always the best candidate.

    Out of curiosity, bambee, have you decided where you'll be attending next year? (I applied to many of the same schools)

    2400 here.

    Accepted at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and the University of Michigan (full ride with money left over to spend, haha). I consider myself incredibly lucky, but I don't think it's the 2400 that got me in.

    2400. Accepted at Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Columbia. Didn't apply anywhere else. I like to think that my pretty crazy essays and my slides of artwork did it, though.

    Two 36's at my school, the val and sal. Don't know much about the one (val), but the other (sal), with mediocre EC's (not that great at all by CC standards) was accepted at Amherst, Chicago, Dartmouth (and probably others), and rejected (maybe waitlisted?) at MIT and Princeton.

    I think the val's going to Vanderbilt?
