<p>Let me know what you think, and if you have any suggestions for what I should do to improve!</p>

<p>As someone who is obviously reasonably intelligent and astute, I'm sure you realize that you are among the stronger end of the applicant spectrum... Granted, admissions at P and Y are not predictable. The best advice I can offer is for you to spend the next few months reflecting upon what is most important to you, and how you would like to represent that throughout your applications.</p>

<p>It will be tough. High ranked school in NE or mid atlantic, high income but no legacy or recruited athlete? Maybe if you're from RI or VT.....</p>

<p>EC's alright, not fantastic. Still stand a decent chance at admissions for top schools, you're sure to get into one if you apply to a few.</p>
