Duke is my dream school and I would love to go, but super worried getting my hopes up and being let down. What are my chances of getting in early to pratt with these stats?

ACT: 36, 8 on essay (:/)
SAT subject tests: 800 on math 2
GPA 4.0 UW/ 4.566 W/ Class rank 5
AP classes taken: AP Calc ABBC, AP enviro, AP lang, AP us history, AP chem, AP comp sci, , AP human geography, AP statistics
5 on all above exams except comp sci and lang
Will take this year: AP lit, AP physics 1, AP comp sci principles, AP psych, AP euro history
EC's include lots of volunteering, marching band, soccer, and other clubs that I've been in and loved all through high school
Recommendations should be good.
I really really want to go! What are my chances?

    You definitely have the numeric statistics just like many other qualified applicants. It's going to really come down to your EC's and application essays explaining your passion/story. Hopefully you have a few EC's other than community service, marching band, etc. that highlight your passion for the STEM area. ED is going to give you the best shot if Duke is your clear first-choice. Highly encourage applying ED if so. Good luck!

    Thanks so much! I do have several stem related ECs, just didn’t list them out. Really stressed about the personal statement, any tips about where to go to find help on that?

    Personal statement should really focus on giving a fresh perspective of you (something that is not academic related). Try writing a few drafts about something that would help the admissions officers to show who you are as a person. It can really be about anything.
