<p>Chance for:
UMiami med program (legacy)
BU Med
Johns Hopkins
Washington U in St. Louis
UC Berkeley</p>

<p>...You have 12,000 people in your grade?</p>

<p>Our school ranks us against everyone in the county... They don't provide the school rank but I'd guess i'm #3/450 in school.</p>

<p>Miami, Cornell, BU,Berkeley should all be no problem.
Duke, Hopkins, and Wash U all look like good matches as well.
Stanford, Brown, Columbia, Princeton are reaches for everyone, but your exceptional commitment to your community should help alot!</p>

<p>Return the favor? <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>you are a very competitive applicant with scores and your ecs help too. However, Stanford Columbia Brown and Princeton are reaches because they are very weird with their acceptances. You should be fine everywhere else.</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>I think you have really good chances to all of the schools you are applying to. To me, that looks really impressive. Sorry I'm not much of a help.</p>

<p>You're in for sure everywhere except the ivies, Stanford, and the med. programs. Your ecs are extremely good though and your grades are stellar too. All about the standardized tests now.
Chance me back?
<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>OK, Ivies plus Stanford is just unpredictable, so I'd say they're a low reach. Your extracurriculars are great, I'm so jealous! (: You're definitely in at all the other schools, if you do as well as you think you well. Also, why aren't you taking SAT math level II? </p>

<p>Chance me back? <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Thanks guys, and @Fleurebell95 - I'm not a super math student haha.</p>

<p>Oh, and might place within top 5 in states for FBLA this year.</p>

<p>I'm a high school junior as well! EC's pretty good, not like massive, but extremely good. Stanford, Brown, Columbia, Princeton reaches, in mostly everywhere else.</p>

<p>Chance me back: <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Another Junior here. Your ECs are pretty awesome! and so are your grades. You seem like a really strong candidate at almost all of those schools. Stanford and Princeton seem like they'd be the hardest to get into, but it's like that for every applicant, so don't lose heart! The red cross club sounds amazing btw! That's quite an achievement!</p>

<p>If you wouldn't mind, chance me too? </p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Thanks guys, more please!</p>

<p>A school with 450 kids sending 10 to ivies would not be considered "most competitive." most competitive would be sending 30 plus percent. A few percent is great, but nowhere near most competitive on a national level.</p>

<p>You look like an average ivy candidate. The soft factors will drive your decisions. Who else from your school applies (athletes, legacy, URMs), how well represented your state I, essays, recs.....</p>

<p>If you study common data sets you'll see that 2 things will help your chances go up considerably. They are being top 2 and having SATs in the high 2300s.</p>

<p>bump, please!</p>
