First time poster here with some questions about chances at schools next year when I start applying! Sorry if I mess up format or forget to include something. I guess I’ll just give a profile with scores and activities, and you guys can comment? I would love chances, alternate matches/suggestions, and also what scores to send.

I’m really looking for a 5,000-10,000 school, with good Music Performance (Piano) and International Relations programs. I have a sister at Brown with a 4.0 gpa (3rd year), so would that affect my chances there? Any other suggestions of schools that fit what I would want?
Thanks so much in advance, and I hope this is everything you guys need to help me out with!
