<p>bumppp not sure why I decided to post this at 6am in the morning…lol</p>

<p>What major? I think you’re pretty much good with everything including CMU, although its impossible to give a definitive answer for ivies and schools like U. Chicago and Berkeley. You’ll get into CMU though.</p>

<p>lol Ya I might not apply to U. Chicago or Ivies because they’re farr too competitive.</p>

<p>I’m applying to Business schools like Stern for NYU and CMU-H&SS for Economics and Tepper School of Business (I heard this was harder than CMU overall).</p>

<p>Thanks so much for replying! I really hope I do get into CMU even if Tepper’s hard to get into :)</p>

<p>I’d agree you have a good shot at CMU</p>

<p>ok thanks!! I need more responses…</p>

<p>Yeah you’d probably get into CMU. Cornell might be a reach</p>

<p>You are on the right path as you know what you need to do in October with the SATs. You have a good chance for CMU, just tweak the CR score and subject scores. Good luck!</p>
