Chance me for MIT (Junior)

<h2>Hi, I'm a junior in high school, and as the username suggests, I'm interested in mathematics. Chance me and I'll chance you back!</h2>

<p>MIT (EA)
Caltech (EA)
UC Berkeley

<li>= will not apply if I get in somewhere EA.
UC app is due before EA/ED decisions come out.

<p>Asian Male from CA (-sadface-)</p>

<p>Go to a competitive public (charter) school, ranked rather high on US News/World Report.</p>

<p>Weighted GPA: N/A
Unweighted GPA: 3.99 </p>

<p>Class Rank: Don't know, would safely guess top 10%. </p>

<p>Freshman/Sophomore grades: All A's except an A- in AP Spanish first semester.</p>

<p>AP's: Calculus BC, Stats, Comp Sci A, Spanish Lang... all 5's except a 4 on Spanish.</p>

<p>Taken Linear Algebra and Multivariable Calculus already at local institutions.</p>

<p>Junior schedule: AP English Lang, AP Chemistry, AP World History, AP Biology, Orchestra, Independent Study in Math (1st semester, real analysis/combinatorics/number theory), Abstract Algebra (2nd semester, off campus)... got all A's first semester.</p>

<p>Senior schedule: AP English Lit, APUSH, AP Physics B (school is dumb and doesn't offer C), stuff off campus for math/comp sci (EPGY, local institutions... thinking about Differential Equations, Real/Complex Analysis, Topology, Algorithms)</p>

<p>SAT: Took 2 weeks ago...will probably retake if below 2200.</p>

<p>PSAT: CR 74/Math 80/Writing 76, 230 composite... should be high enough for NMS.</p>

<p>Subject Tests:
800 Math II
690 Spanish (definitely not sending)</p>


<p>Summer Activities: 2010 - Linear Algebra course, 2011 - Hampshire College Summer Studies in Mathematics</p>

Math Club - Co-President (50+ hours) (unique, duh)
Writing/Poetry Club (30+ hours)
Tutoring in Math (50+ hours)
Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music - Student Staff (2009, 2010)
Ushering at local Shakespeare festival - 2009, 2010
USAMO Qualifier last year (132 AMC12 + 9 AIME)
Violin (most unique extracurricular ever): private lessons, school orchestra (concertmaster), county youth symphony (concertmaster last year), chamber music groups (won local awards), honors county high school jazz band, pit orchestra for school musicals
Working on a biomathematics project with someone, may submit to Siemens come fall/winter.
Applied to a few summer math/research programs for this summer.</p>

<p>My family has been very dysfunctional/fought a lot/on the verge of breaking up within the last 3 years, making it very hard to work on stuff/be concentrated at times. That being said, we make 100K+ each year.</p>

<p>you have a great chance on Berkeley, MIT and Caltech
Make sure you get a high SAT or ACT score
and take more subject test in science if you really want to be considered for the universities i just mentioned</p>

<p>As log as you get high SAT's, you should definitely get accepted at at least one of those schools.</p>

<p>Don't forget to write great essays :-)</p>

<p>I'll assume you're SAT's will be 1500+/1600</p>

<p>MIT (EA) --- good chance, but not a lock
Caltech (EA) --- very strong chance, close to a lock (how many USAMO qualifiers are there these days-it would depend on that)
Harvard --- toss-up
Yale --- I would predict you would get in as they don't get as many strong math/science people
Stanford* --- maybe, admissions is unpredictable there
Brown* --- very unpredictable admissions, highly essay-dependent
UChicago* --- lock
Duke* --- lock
UC Berkeley --- lock unless "holistic admissions" is completely messed up
UCLA --- see Berkeley answer</p>


<p>OK, now chance me:
mid-1500's on SAT out of 1600
770-800 on several SATIIs
did well in state math, science competitions (nothing like USAMO), some other awards in other fields too...
blah blah blah some other stuff i'm well-rounded OK
People tell me I'm at the level ABOVE AND BEYOND A GRAD STUDENT in my chosen field.</p>



<p>Chance me.</p>
