<p>Fordham- low reach
St. John’s- match
Colorado College- low match
Colgate- high match
SUNY ESF- low match
Franklin & Marshall- match
U of Richmond-high match</p>
<p>Anyways, I’m also curious as to why many regard Fordham a reach. (and Colgate a match??)</p>
<p>I’m not sure if I was misinformed about its selectivity or something, but I thought that SAT’s in the 2000 range and GPAs above 3.5 (by your standards) were pretty good for it. Feels like I missed out on some crucial info.</p>
<p>Overall, I think you’re a competitive applicant.
Brown, Cornell and Middlebury are all reaches IMO. I think the rest are all matches, more or less. Colgate is probably a high match. The rest are middle to low matches.
Thanks for the chance!</p>
<p>i think that with your stats you could easily get accepted at colgate and even cornell. There’s no need to apply to St.John’s for example, their average Sat is about 1500 and it isn’t a very good school. You can reach higher!
Also, what country are you from and do you need financial aid?</p>
<p>I’m still quite reluctant to even try applying to those universities at the very top like Princeton, Yale, Williams or Amherst, since I fear they might just be a waste of time.</p>
<p>I’ll make sure to keep everyone posted on what’s happening though.
As an obsessive international CC user, I do know how uplifting and useful threads about other internationals who went through the process before are.</p>
