<p>Does anyone think I have a chance? Just in case this matters, I'm a white male. More info upon request. Thanks a lot everyone, I'll chance back if you want.</p>

<p>bump please</p>

<p>bump! I’ll chance back!</p>

<p>bump 10char.</p>

<p>WAIT. lol. you got a society of women engineers award as a while male? how is that possible O_O</p>

<p>Your Sat I scores seem alright, your sat II physics score however is low, particularly since you are applying to engineering. Your ECs seem very good. I think you have a chance, but it is somewhat of a reach. It really is quite hard to predict peoples chances for such prestigious universities.</p>

<p>Are you taking AP physics C?</p>

<p>Chance me back?

<p>Your SAT I scores are good although your physics SAT II is rather low for an engineering major. You have pretty solid ECs, and your awards in particular are great! I’d say you have a decent shot at Cornell, though the Ivies are always a crapshoot.</p>

<p>Chance me back please! <a href=“http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/princeton-university/1247439-am-i-right-track-princeton.html[/url]”>http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/princeton-university/1247439-am-i-right-track-princeton.html</a></p>

<p>bananafreak2u, the award didn’t go to just females, it was to one male and one female</p>

<p>I’m not surprised my physics score is low, but the thing is, I barely learned anything in honors physics. I just took the SAT II’s in november and I’m currently in physics so there was a lot I haven’t learned. It doesn’t matter though because I won’t have the opportunity to explain this to admissions people. Thanks guys</p>

<p>Hi ! I’m sorry to say this, but if we just look at your overall profile, cornell will be a high reach. Do you have any unusual experience or circumstances which you can exhibit in your essay ?</p>

<p>chance me back : <a href=“http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1248301-chance-international-ivys-top-lacs.html[/url]”>http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1248301-chance-international-ivys-top-lacs.html</a></p>

<p>Do you need to submit all three SAT IIs? I think most top schools only need 2.</p>

<p>patpat, unfortunately no. to be brutally honest, I’m about as average and uninteresting as they get.</p>

<p>and quiksilver, I think you can submit two if you do score choice, but I wasn’t going to pay extra just to do that.</p>

<p>There should be at least one… :frowning:
hmm… by the way, would you mind to check my thread above ??</p>

<p>It is a very high reach with a 630CR score.</p>
