I'd love to go to Georgetown, but I realize that I may not be the most qualified candidate so this is most definitley a reach school for me. Either way, does anyone think I have even the slightest shot? I applied to the School of Business.
I've been accepted to the honors college at UMass Amherst, the honors college at Bentley, Fordham, and Northeastern & I applied to BU, BC, Holy Cross, Cornell, and Georgetown regular.
Weighted GPA: 98/4.0
Rank: 16/481 (top 3%)
at a public high school
SAT I: CR- 670 Math- 680 Writing-730 (2080)
SAT II: US History- 740 Lit- 690
My SATs will most likely be my downfall, as I realize they're not incredibly strong.

My essays were very strong, in my opinion. My common app essay talked about how tripping in the hallways at school taught me that attitude is everything, and my supplemental essay was detailed my passion for economics, coupled with my passion for leadership which has ultimatley lead me to consider a management degree.
I had a really great interview, and the interviewer said he would write me an excellent recommendation, and also said that I would be a strong fit for MSB. I realize while the interviewer's recommendation will help me, it may not be enough to lead to my acceptance among so many qualified candidates from top prep schools with perfect SAT scores.
