I was wondering if I had a chance at Duke RD. It is one of my top choices but not a clear cut favorite to do ED on. I'm the first in my family to go to college and am Indian.

I go to an average high school in IL( high low income population and minority population and about 30% go to local community colleges) Some students every year though get accepted to top notch colleges and universities.

GPA: 3.88/4.0 unweighted 4.16/4.0 weighted (my school actually goes on a 5 point scale)
Rank: 11/540 (weighted rank)

Courses: 1 AP (World History) in soph (4)
1 AP(US) in jun (5)
I'm taking 6 AP's (CALC AB, Phys, Gov, Stats, English, Spanish)
currently during senior year.

I have taken all honors/AP subjects I could except for electives and graduation requirements (such as Art and Introduction to Business)


Basketball (9,10) (intramural 11,12)
Baseball (9,10)
Volleyball (Intramurals 11,12)
DECA (11, vice president 12)
NHS (11,vice-president12)
Harvard Model Congress West Wing Member (11,12)
SHADES (international club) (9,10)
Job (at least 10 hrs a week for past 3 yrs)
Writing Tutor (12)
Volunteering in a Gift Shop at Hospital: ~250 hrs
(promoted to new volunteer helper and supervisor for last few months)

12 Term High Honor Roll
National Merit Finalist


Math: 740 Writing: 710 Reading: 700 (I never retook them)

PSAT's: 226 (Finalist)

ACT's: 33 composite

So, what are my chances. Thanks!
