<p>Please chance me for:
Brown Engineering ED
Columbia SEAS ED
Penn SEAS ED
MIT ED
CalTech
Cornell Eng.
Princeton Eng.
U of I - Urbana
UMich, Ann Arbor
University of California, Berkeley</p>

<p>Thanks for chancing me, will chance back!</p>

<p>BTW, my recommendations from my teachers and counselors will be absolutely amazing. I am also planning on getting a recommendation from my mentor (she has a Ph.D) at Fermilab since she personally offered me that she would if I needed it.</p>

<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>Really good shot at a lot of those schools, but everyone will be similar to you so who knows. I know that EA helps a lot at MIT (especially if you interview, the word is that the acceptance rate is doubled for EA applicants who interview). Id expect you to get into UM, UC, and UI</p>

<p>I'd say best shot MIT or Columbia ED. </p>

<p>MIT ED should work because you have solid physics cred. How Sid you prep for the physics olympiad if you don't mind my asking?</p>

<p>*did not Sid, sorry iPod auto correction</p>

<p>bumppp 10char</p>

<p>someone chance please, i'll chance back!</p>

<p>anyone ? Please chance me, I'll chance back.</p>

<p>heres my prediction:</p>

<p>Brown Engineering ED - match
Columbia SEAS ED - match
Penn SEAS ED - match
MIT ED - low reach
CalTech - low reach
Cornell Eng. - match
Princeton Eng. - match/low reach
U of I - Urbana - high safety
UMich, Ann Arbor - high safety
University of California, Berkeley - match</p>

<p>damn counselors. You look good for most of the schools, but I would say MIT, Caltech, and Princeton might be low reaches, but thats alright they are for everyone. I really like Columbia's program they seem to be getting stronger and stronger. Chance back please</p>

<p>Brown Engineering ED--match
Columbia SEAS ED--match
Penn SEAS ED--low match
MIT ED--reach (as with for most people)
CalTech--reach (as with for most people)
Cornell Eng.--in
Princeton Eng.--high match
U of I - Urbana--high match
UMich, Ann Arbor--match
University of California, Berkeley--reach</p>

<p>You have amazing EC's and your test cores and GPA are all amazing. I bet your SAT will be off the chart!!</p>

<p>Chance me!!

<p>MIT and Caltech are the only real reach schools on the list (and by that I mean these two are a crapshoot).
Great scores, great schedule, impressive application.
Definitely get to know the schools though. For instance MIT doesn't have ED, but EA. This may be a simple mistake but in the essays it shows if you don't know the schools.
All I can say is make sure that your essays are specialized, and if they are, you are a great applicant to any great school!</p>

<p>BTW I'm doing Siemens and Intel too, good luck!</p>
