<p>I've been a long time lurker on these forums, but today I needed to post my own question.</p>
<p>I really want to attend an ivy league school, I don't care what it takes I want to make it happen.</p>
<p>Following my freshman year I was accepted into the U of Montana-Missoula. I had a track/xc scholarship, but ended up hating the school.</p>
<p>I just finished my freshman year at U of Montana with a 3.78 (on the Dean's list both fall and spring semester). </p>
<p>A few weeks ago I applied and was accepted to the Liberal Arts college at the U of Minnesota, however I still would like to try to get into an ivy league or private university.</p>
<p>ACT score = 28, with a 10 out of a possible 12 on the writing portion.
AP Spanish and AP English scores = 4.
3.85GPA in HS, graduated top 10%</p>
<p>Hold school record in the 800m, head track captain for 2 years.
Ran XC for 4 years (varsity), head xc captain for 3 years.</p>
<p>Do I have a chance at Ivies or should I just stick with Minnesota?</p>
<p>Thanks in advance,</p>
