<p>well... what do you think my chances are? probably not even remote these days it seems like you gotta be like a nobel peace prize winner to get into Harvard. Oh well. Also i am planning on majoring in Econ as an Undergrad hence the emphasis on economics lol.</p>

<p>You are in the possible range for all those schools. But the only ones who can give you a realistic assessment of your chances are the members of the admissions committees at those schools, and then only when they have your complete application package in front of them.</p>

<p>In other words: nobody on CC or anywhere else on the Internet can accurately predict your chances at any selective enrollment school.</p>

<p>This message is MIT-specific, but the principle applies to all selective colleges:</p>

<p>Make sure your college list includes some safeties - schools where your stats are well above the norm, that you can pay for under most pessimistic FA assumptions, and where you'd be happy.</p>

<p>University of Chicago has an extra early application for juniors that is due in june before senior year I would try to apply by then. I applied regular EA but if I had known about it.. then I would have done it. You probably have a decent shot.</p>
