    Academically your qualified for all your choices but if you are looking to get into the MT program than that's by audition and no one can tell you how that will go until the process is over. As for Elon, you will be admitted to the school, and if you decide to attend then you mostlikely will qualify for decent FA. (being accepted into the MT major is always a long shot because of the number of qualified applicants).

    I don't think you have anything to worry about...your stats are impressive. Elon will probably bend over backwards to get you in lol. :p

    Although I am curious as to why you are applying to Elon when you are also applying to schools like Dartmouth and Cornel.
