Chance me for the following places! :D

<p>Hi, this is my first post on the forum. I was wondering if you could chance me for the following places, and tell me if I have a shot at any of them.</p>

<p>University of Edinburgh
Georgetown University
Harvard University
McGill University
Stanford University
University of California - Berkeley
University of California - Los Angeles
University of California - San Diego</p>

<p>GPA (Unweighted): Around 3.84, but I can't remember exactly.
GPA (Weighted): 4.12</p>

<p>I have taken AP English, AP Psychology, and AP US History. I have passed each class with at least an A. Unfortunately, AP World History didn't come into existence here until after I had taken it. Next year, I will be taking AP Biology, AP Economics, AP English, and AP Government.</p>

<p>SAT I Scores: </p>

<p>Overall: 2310, but I have retaken it several times. This is my highest score.
Critical Reading: 790
Math: 740
Writing: 780</p>

<p>ACT Scores:</p>

<p>Composition: 34
Math 33
English 36
Reading 36
Science 33</p>

<p>SAT II Scores:</p>

<p>Biology: 730
German: 790
Literature: 760
Math I: 700
World History: 800
US History: 800</p>

<p>Extracurriculars:</p>

<p>Lacrosse Team. 3 Years. Junior Varisty for two years, Varsity for one year.
Debate Team. 3 Years. I have won two trophies with my partner.
Interact Club. 1 Year.
Hiking Club. 1 Year.
Public Forum. Not a founding member, but one of the earlier members. I lapsed out of it, and only got involved last year. 1 Year.
High School Paper. I was made an editor my freshman year. Next year, my senior year, I will be made Editor-in-Chief.
Boy Scouts. I am currently a Life Scout; I will be made an Eagle (if all goes as planned...) next fall, right before I send my college application out. Den Chief to the little Cub Scouts.
Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do. Don't know whether this will help at all, but eh.
I'm also thinking of starting a German club next year. I'm sure it would help.</p>

<p>Community Service:</p>

<p>Tutor in all things history, did this during my Junior year.
Many different things with Interact.
Various things with the Boy Scouts. </p>

<p>There is probably a few other things I'm leaving out, but honestly, I can't remember. I plan on volunteering for a political campaign in the fall, but I'm not sure whether that means anything.</p>

<p>Recommendations:</p>

<p>I will have, I think, excellent recommendations. My German teacher used to teach at MIT. My English teacher, my mentor, went to UC Berkeley and got his Master's at Cambridge. My history teacher went to Princeton. Not sure whether any of that helps, but I assume it would.</p>

<p>In Conclusion:</p>

<p>Anyway, that's that. I screwed up a bit my freshman year; I got one C, but I'm going to see if I can retake that and maybe a few others I am unsatisfied with this summer. Last year, I couldn't, since I was having spinal surgery (I'm 6'11 as a result of it). Anyway, please chance. :)</p>

<p>Oh, I'm also a white male from California.</p>

<p>Oh, and Link Crew. I've been in Link Crew for one year. Forgot to include that... :P</p>

<p>Harvard, Stanford reaches. Berkeley match, LA SD slightly lower matches. Overall I think you have great chances at all besides Harvard + Stanford, at which you do have a chance but it's not that high.</p>

<p>And wow, 6'11? Do you play basketball or volleyball?</p>

<p>Thanks for the response, much appreciated. I will definitely go for all of them. My dream school is Stanford, and I live in the Bay Area, but Cal is a close second. I only recently started considering overseas colleges.</p>

<p>So, anyone have any advice on what I can do to get in there? I know that pretty much everyone is a reach there. I expect that my GPA will stay much the same over the next year, too.</p>

<p>I only played Basketball in Middle School. I detested most of the people I played with, and didn't continue onward.</p>

<p>Anyone else? Oh, and please chance for Cornell and Notre Dame as well if you respond! :)</p>
