Chance me for Engineering/Math at Top or Close to Top Schools!

<p>Operations Research, Financial Engineering, Statistics, Applied Math, maybe Economics or computer science (as a minor) are the types of majors I'm looking at.</p>

<p>It would be great to chance at all these schools, and of course I have some safeties.

AP tests so Far: Stat, US, World, Lang, Physics B
GPA: 100/100 (Max, Straight As, never below an A)

<p>Jeez Bump…</p>

<p>ED I would say you have a fine shot at all of the aforementioned schools, but I’ll break it down for you:
Cornell ED- Match, with your stats/ school reputation you should get in (But is an Ivy so you never know…)
NYU- Safety (I’m not familiar with your specific program but generally anything outside Stern should be a safety for you)
Princeton-High-reach (highly unlikely, to be honest)
UChicago- Depends on essays. If they are great your in, otherwise forget about it
CMU-Match (Keep in mind it is very difficult to get into the CS program there though)
Northwestern-Match (show interest if possible, though)
MIT- Reach, but again will come down to your essays. If they’re great you have a reasonable shot, otherwise not so much…
Good luck!</p>

<p>Thanks a lot for the input!
Anyone else!!?</p>
