Hello, I want to know my chances at USC, Cornell, Case Western, and the University of Washington.
I want to go into genetics, and at Cornell I'd be going for their viticulture program.
I am a Caucasian female from a well off family, and a 3rd gen student, so I don't have any real draws. I am going into STEM though, and I've done lots of volunteering regarding females in STEM.
I just want to know my chances for getting into these schools, and potentially ways to strengthen my chances of getting into my reaches (USC and Cornell).
Some of my stats:
3.77U/W GPA, and 3.96 weighted GPA on a 4.4 scale (AP and Honors coursework is weighted x1.1, maximum is actually ~4.33 due to required general coursework)
Top 10% of a class of ~700 people, at a competitive Minnesota school
35 composite ACT (35 English, 34 Mathematics, 35 Reading, and 34 Science)
11 Writing ACT
AP Scores (so far, planning on taking 2 next year & yet to take 2 this year): 5 AP Human Geography and 4 AP World History
Good activities, great involvement with community, good work history, and good accomplishments. I'm quite sure recs and essays will be great.
