Applied to University of Pennsylvania ED, but the admissions counselor was really cool. He said I wasn't getting into Wharton because I haven't taken calculus, so I self-deferred and chose Econ in CAS. He said I had a much greater chance there.
Accepted to University of Tennessee Chancellor's Honors program
Plus $24k in scholarships from school + $20k from State. Not a bad safety.
Applied WUSTL, I think there's no chance.
Applied to Tulane (brother went there)
Pretty sure I'll get accepted but it'll be an ass ton of money.
