Chance Half URM for ivies?

<p>Hey everyone, how are you doing? I feel like a wacko making a chance me thread, but, like most of you, I'm terribly nervous for college admissions. </p>

<p>I'm semi paranoid (probably for no reason) about my real identity being found out by my peers (not like I said anything totally crazy), so I may be a little vague on my stats. </p>

<p>I know admissions are absolutely Unpredictable, but thank you for helping <3. </p>

<p>Schools: HYPSM Columbia, Cornell, Stern, </p>

<p>SAT I (breakdown): Took it 3 times, super scored is 2190. However, all colleges will see my scores from a 1980->2180>2090</p>

<p>ACT: N/A</p>

<p>SAT II: 720, 700, 730</p>

<p>Rank (percentile if rank is unavailable): 4th
AP (place score in parenthesis): 4 in school (Two 5's, Two 4's) 4 Self Studied (three 5's one 4)
IB (place score in parenthesis): N/A
Senior Year Course Load: 11 AP Tests, 5 self studied, taking college classes
Major Awards (USAMO, Intel etc.): Sadly, none</p>

<p>Extracurriculars (place leadership in parenthesis): Nothing absolutely outrageous/different. President of 3 clubs, VP of 4. A few awards for speaking and the like. </p>

<p>Job/Work Experience: n/a =[
Volunteer/Community service: Around 200 Hours</p>

<p>Summer Activities: Boys State Mayor, Boys State Lawyer, Chilling with my friends</p>

<p>Essays: Hard to evaluate, but I thought they were inspiring/good</p>

<p>Teacher Recommendation: Hopefully good! They were in two classes that I was definitely not the best in, though. </p>

<p>Counselor Rec: Hopefully good. I did a lot of weird things kids from my school don't usually do. Self Studying, college courses, etc.
Additional Rec: N/A
Interview: Fairly good, I guess. They didn't say I was OMG awesome or OMG awful, so somewhere in between?</p>

Hooks (URM, first generation college, etc.): Half URM</p>

<p>Strengths: Did some things other people from my area did not, half URM</p>

<p>Weaknesses: Low SAT scores compared to other applicants from other areas in the nation.</p>

<p>eh. I think you'd get into at least one, depending on how many you applied to. crapshoot ftw?</p>

<p>Just so you know, Spanish means people from Spain. Is 20%of your school Spanish or Latino/a? Latino/a means people from a Spanish speaking country. I just wanted to let you know so that there wasn't confusion or embarrassment if an admissions officers asked you about your school.</p>

<p>haha thank you Eleanor! I would have made that mistake. I mean 20% from spanish speaking countries. </p>

<p>Yeh def a crapshoot Blue. Thank you =)</p>

<p>A little bump</p>

Parents are both educated, but no legacy status
Our income hovers around 85k</p>
