Another what are my chances thread

<p>Here is the list of schools I'm applying to.</p>

CMU (I'm from Pittsburgh so maybe they give preference?)
PSU </p>

<p>I'm pretty sure I'll get accepted to all except 3, MIT, CMU, and UMich.</p>

<p>UMich is a state school and they get 60% of their applicants from out of state, but only can accept about 30% of them, so my chances are slim but who cares I liked Purdue better so whether or not I get into UMich isn't a HUGE deal for me.</p>

<p>MIT, I don't think I look, at least on the surface and in the scope of this post, like I'll get accepted, however I already conducted my MIT interview and I believe I did really well and was really able to sell myself and my story to my interviewer, so maybe I have a better chance of getting accepted to MIT than what meets the eye, but who knows, we'll see.</p>

<p>Here are my stats. Oh and by the way, Computer Engineering.</p>

<p>GPA: 4.06 (weighting is out of 4.0, but honors A = 4.5, B = 3.5, etc AP A = 5.0, B = 4.0, etc, so it's a little lower than other schools) and I didn't have opportunity to take many honors and ap classes for the first 2 years, there's a huge story to that but I don't have the energy to explain it all nor do I think anyone here wants to read it all. Only B's were in 9th grade Composition, 10th grade Speech + Communications, + 11th grade AP Chemistry. (hey chem wasn't my thing and we didn't have ap physics, if we did, I would have gotten an A)</p>

<p>Rank: 6 out of 185</p>

<p>ECs: National Honors Society, Academic Competition Club, Math Club. My school had no chess club or computers/robotics club, if we did I'd join in an instant.</p>

<p>Senior course selection - AP Calc AB, (we don't have BC otherwise I'd be on that) Computer Programming for the 2nd year (however I'm not actually in the class, I get a grade each week for working on my own (easy A) I am self studying AP Computer Science A and am going to take the test in May, I'm sure all of the colleges I'm applying to will love to see this right?) Physics II, (again we don't have AP gerrrr) AP US History, Spanish 4, English 12, (no not honors, never took an honors english never will) Advanced CADD. Noteable - in 11th grade I took 2 math classes, Trig and Honors Precalculus, 2 periods a day of math (it was great) and got an A in both, I did this so I could take AP Calc in my senior year, again a long story so I won't go into it.</p>

<p>SAT - 1990, 780M, (missed 1 problem, I bubbled in C instead of D, stupid mistake cost me the perfect) 580CR (no comment) 630W (eh) and I took the ACTs but haven't gotten my scores back yet. I took the Chem subject test and got a 700. Oh and I took the AP Chem test and AP US Gov test last year and got a 4 and a 3 (ya I didn't care much and didn't study at all and got a 3 big deal) respectively. I'm taking the SATs again, I can see myself pulling off an 800, 650, 650, but nothing much higher than that to be honest. I'm planning on taking both teh Math I and II subject tests in November and scoring a perfect or close to perfect on both.</p>

<p>So the age old question, what are my chances at CMU and MIT, because everywhere else I'm pretty good to get in, and if I don't get in (to like UMich for example) I really don't care because if I got into CMU or MIT and could afford it I'd go to either of them before any other college.</p>
