<p>I have a kind of ridiculous amount of E.C.'s... can that be a bad thing? :/</p>

<p>What do you guys think? Oh, and leave your thread link and I will surely chance you back! :)</p>

<p>You're looking decent: about half of the people from my school with comparable stats were accepted.</p>

<p>Out of curiosity, was your WYSE award at State (300 division, of course)?</p>

<p>Thanks! And unfortunately no, it was just at regionals. Did you take any WYSE tests?</p>

<p>Yes, I placed at State in the Unlimited division for English and Chemistry.</p>

<p>Oh and I'm a white male btw.</p>

<p>I'm pretty sure you're in, my brother got in with about 1/8th of your application</p>

<p>It all looks pretty good. I don't think there's enough room for all those ECs on the app, soooo pick your best, I suppose. U of I's a great school, good luck.</p>
