another ivy hopeful, but chance me anyway?

<p>Collegeboard delayed my entire school's AP test results for 3 weeks while they investigated cheating allegations. It was nerve racking. Anyway, they FINALLY released the scores last week, so I decided to find something else to be stressed about and start a chance thread.</p>

<p>So, if you wouldn't mind, chance me for Yale SCEA, Georgetown, Brown PLME, Dartmouth, Princeton, Harvard, Stanford, UVA, Northwestern HPME, Wash U St. Louis, UCLA, UC Berkeley, and George Washington? Safeties aren't a huge issue because I'm guaranteed a spot at at least one UC, but if you think there are any more colleges I should be interested in, let me know!</p>

<p>Everything looks good.
Focus on essays, get good recs, and you have a great shot at all schools.</p>

<p>Most likely acceptance at Wash U in St. Louis, Georgetown, Northwestern, UCLA, UC Berkeley, and George Washington</p>

<p>Awesome, thanks so much. I signed up for senior classes today, so I'm taking ap lit, ap gov/h econ, ap world, h anatomy, sports med, and photo b (2nd semester for UC reqs). It's not as rigorous as my schedule last year because I pretty much ran out of ap courses I can take at my school. Community college classes are full and are not feasible with my extra curriculars. Will my senior schedule hurt me? I can take either apes or ap art history too, but I kind of want a life this year.</p>

<p>Bump, bump, bump it up.
I just started my common app and realized the need for more safeties! If you could suggest anywhere else with a good Political Science, Chemistry, or Pre-med program that fits in with my stats, I would definitely check it out.</p>

<p>Most likely acceptance at Dartmouth, UVA, Georgetown, Wash U in St. Louis, UCLA, UC Berkeley, and George Washington.</p>

<p>University of Illinois Urbana Champaign has a remarkable Chemistry program.</p>
