<p>Any and all feedback appreciated!</p>

<p>nothing jumps out at me as "amazing". Your scores are solid, elaborate on your ECs. Mention some of the awards you've won for debate team. Perhaps I am being hard on you because your stats look like mine and I am hard on myself :( Best of luck though- you have a great shot!</p>

<p>I think you have a decent chance at these schools. your GPA may not be hot but being captain of two teams, and student body president say something about your leadership skills. Your SAT II"s are low, can you retake them before apps are due? Try to emphasize your participation w/ Winners on Wheels, and 7 years of volunteering is a good asset to have. Other than that, don't be too hard on yourself -everyone is but try to avoid it- and hope for the best. If you want to look at my stats go to my post, "Stanford EA" I'm hugely in need on input. Thanks and good luck!</p>

<p>Yale (first choice, applied early action)-10%
Penn State Univ. Park-70%
Loyola in MD-70%
William and Mary-50%

<p>Your list includes reaches, matches, and safeties. Go for it. Best of luck!</p>

<p>dckoo5's estimates seem about right to me, except i'd be more optimistic about Yale, Brown, Duke, and UVA. Those should all be about 10% higher.</p>
