<p>I am interested in Political Science and Global Health and I hope to go to Law School after undergrad.</p>

<p>Do I even stand a chance at this point, or should I just die on DEC 15?!?!</p>

<p>jesus dude...</p>

<p>I'd say that your chances are excellent.</p>

<p>Agreed with the above, your academics/stats aren't stellar but your extra-curriculars seem AMAZING! Makes me wish I hadn't been so lazy. :/</p>

<p>Then again, I'm not exactly an expert on the admissions process - I'm also applying ED to Dartmouth though, good luck!</p>

<p>Solid chance, I was admitted to Dartmouth with similar scores etc. (my rank was Top 1% though). The thing that helped me standout in my opinion were my essays/research work, similar to your case</p>

<p>Damn dude, I hope I get in early. I've got a 4.00 unweighted, 34 on ACT, and my dad went there, so let's just hope everything works out.</p>

<p>The OP is an URM. Everything is very good or better, with the only weaknesses that I see being marginal class rank and a couple of poor test results (among many fine test results). I'd be surprised if he didn't get in, assuming good recs and competent essays. But I've been surprised before.</p>

<p>yankeefreak, your GPA and ACT are fine, but what else do you bring to the table? That may make the difference. Good luck in any case. :)</p>

<p>Thank you for your encouragement! I truly hope that I get in. These next 39 days are going to be some of the longest of my life..</p>
