<p>plus...raised money for several disaster victims</p>

<p>I am going for Berkeley, Duke, CMU, UPenn, Cornell</p>

<p>How will I do?</p>

<p>I'd say you have a decent chance of getting into any of those schools. But since its extremely difficult to tell, expect to get into maybe 3/5 schools (still depending on essays, etc.). UPenn is probably your biggest reach here, and even then it is very possible to get in (based off your stats)</p>

<p>West Coast as in Cali West Coast? If so, I think you can get into UCB.
Your SAT IIs are fairly good, though you should consider retaking the Math (is it Math I or II?) given that like 30% of people taking Math II get 800.
Overall, your stats are decent and you stand a chance. ;)
Unfortunately, as schools like Penn are notoriously unpredicatable, it's really a toss up. Never hurts to give it a shot.</p>

<p>Oh and also, your disaster fundraising sounds like a potential essay topic.</p>

<p>thanks!</p>

<p>bump please!</p>

<p>I agree with Tintin. UPenn seems almost impossible to get into OOS, it seems around here, no one ever gets in, no matter what stats they have.</p>

<p>which is good as im not really desperate for UPenn</p>

<p>Post #5 is incorrect. UPenn is a private Ivy League school. The above poster may be confusing UPenn with Penn State University--two schools which have little in common besides being located in the same state. Duke & Penn are your biggest challenges in which to gain admission. Clearly, your numbers are outstanding but your posted profile does not give any substantial impression of who you are. Application essays & teacher recs will probably decide your fate at Duke & Penn.</p>

<p>*sigghh..i got waitlisted for Duke and am really eager to go there...</p>
