<p>Thanks a ton guys. Please be honest (and blunt if necessary) with your responses.</p>

<p>I think your scores and GPA are great but would send ACT instead of SAT if given the option. SAT is still very good but your ACT is stronger. Your ECS are also really good. If you can write an essay bringing everything to a specific meaning, and get great recs I'd say chances are good for all those schools.</p>

<p>Carnegie Mellon - low reach
-Johns Hopkins - low reach
-Duke - low reach
-Cornell - low reach</p>

<p>The only reason I say "reach" is because admissions to these schools tends to be random, and so I can't say you are a "shoo-in," but I have no doubt that you should get accepted to AT LEAST one of those.</p>

<p>Best of luck!</p>

<p>Answer mine? <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Agreed. If you submit your ACT instead of your SAT, then I see no reason why you would not get into at least one of those schools, and I'd bet you get into more than one.</p>

<p>ACT over SAT. SAT is a little too average, while ACT is pretty darn good :D
Really impressive academic record as well as extra curriculars.
You have a really good shot at all of these schools... good luck!
Chance me back?

thanks :D</p>

<p>I would say send the ACT, but you have really good SATIIs. If you're applying RD, maybe try and take the SAT again and get it higher. I know Duke and Cornell will only look at either the ACT or the SATI and SATIIs, but they won't look at the ACT and then your SATIIs (which are both great). so send the ACT now, take the SAT again, and if you break 2200 composite then I would send that with your SATIIs since there will still be time.</p>

<p>other than that you're looking good for these.</p>

<p>chance me back?
<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>I think that you'll get into all of those schools. I think you also have a good shot at the Ivies. Chance me back? <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>
