Applied and anxious waiting...chance please?

<p>The waiting is absolutely killing me!!....and since lots of people on this forum seem to have a decent understanding of the admissions process, I was wondering if you would be so kind as to chance me...Thanks in advance!</p>

<p>Regular Decision: major undecided (either Linguistics, English or Religious Studies)</p>

<p>Senior year class rigor: 5 APs (most challenging that I could)...I have taken 2 additional APs and 5 or 6 honors courses</p>

<p>Test Scores: ACT Composite - 34 (English 36, Math 34, Reading 34, Science 30);
SAT IIs: Spanish -- 730, Literature -- 720, Math I -- 750</p>

<p>Grades: Current GPA is 4.03 (weighted) and I think about 3.88 (unweighted). School doesn't rank.</p>

<p>Essay: For CommonApp: Wrote about the irony that exists as a result of America's prejudice against Arabs and Muslims, related it to a personal experience with my stepbrother (he is Iraqi.) Not super standout I'd say, but it was from the heart.
For Supplement: Short Takes I think went well....longer essay was kind of a creative meandering of thoughts, the main thesis being my love for the pursuit of knowledge (actually wasn't corny or forced, as much as it may sound like it is)</p>

<p>Recommendations: Didn't get to read any from my teachers, but they are both excellent writers and teachers and two of my favorite people in my school... My counselor and I are pals so that one should be solid.</p>

<p>Extra Curricular and Service:</p>

<ul>
<li><p>Started an international aid organization during my sophomore year...I have led a group twice now to Zimbabwe to carry out student-organized projects and we have raised over $39,000 through presentations to local charities, solicitation of friends and family, etc. This is by far the activity in which I am most entrenched.</p></li>
<li><p>Have run cross-country all four years, varsity for three years. Co-captain of the team during my senior year</p></li>
<li><p>Track for three years, varsity all three. Will likely be a captain this spring.</p></li>
<li><p>Have performed at least 100 hours of community service, not including my Zimbabwe project, in contexts such as volunteering at my local School for the Blind and tutoring at a nearby elementary school.</p></li>
<li><p>Class president my junior year. Class representative during my freshman, sophomore, and senior years. Lots of service done through this as well.</p></li>
<li><p>Conservation club member (probably won't help haha)</p></li>
<li><p>Work experience at a nearby restaurant (busboy)</p></li>
<li><p>Second-chair violinist in school Symphony Orchestra</p></li>
<li><p>National Honor Society member and Book Award Winner for another college</p></li>
</ul>

<p>Ethnicity: White
Legacy: N/A
Income bracket: Not applying for financial aid
State: Indiana</p>

<p>Thanks again for your time!

<p>Your stats and ECs put you within the pool of competitive candidates for Y. </p>

<p>That's all anyone with a decent understanding can tell you. Anyone who says that you are or are not likely to be accepted, does not have a decent understanding of the admissions process.</p>

<p>Feel better now ;)?</p>

<p>@entomom....thank you for the reply!</p>
