<p>Hey! Please chance me for the following! I'll chance back ASAP!</p>

St. John's
Colorado College
Trinity, CT
Franklin & Marshall
U of Richmond</p>

<p>International Student
High School: A top Jesuit School abroad</p>

<p>GPA: 3.38 / 4 (We grade differently from Americans)
Rank: 48/570 (8%)
SAT Superscore: 2180 (800 CR, 720 M, 660 W)</p>

VP and Lecturer for the Japanese Language Organization
Head for the graphics and design arm of our school fair
Head Organizer of the school's annual Japanese Culture Festival
Founder of an intramural football tournament
Created a website that makes free practice tests for local admission tests</p>

<p>You have a pretty good SATs but low GPA (I don’t know if your GPA is equivalent to that of America’s so I’m speaking as if it is) so this makes it difficult to judge. </p>

<p>It also helps that your international.</p>

<p>Fordham: Low Reach
Brown: High Reach
St. John’s: Low Reach
Cornell: Mid/High Reach </p>

<p>You never know, though! </p>

<p>Chance me back please?

<p>I also forgot to add this:</p>

<p>770 for SAT World History
730 for SAT US History</p>

<p>It might give some context for my grades, which I honestly don’t think should be looked at from an American context. 4.0s are kind of rare over here.</p>

<p>Besides GPA i think you have a great chance. I’m not sure whether the admission officers would look at your GPA with the same respect to American GPA’s though.</p>

<p>Fordham- low reach
Brown- reach
St. John’s- match
Colorado College- low match
Cornell- reach
Middlebury- reach
Colgate- high match
Trinity, CT-match
SUNY ESF- low match
Franklin & Marshall- match
U of Richmond-high match</p>

<p>Well it depends on how the admissions people look at your gpa, but
cornell-low reach/high match
mainly because of your gpa, but you sat is above the 75th percentile

if you’re interested.</p>

<p>Yeah, looks like GPA interpretation will make or break me here.</p>

<p>I find it a bit odd though that most of you seem find St. John’s to be a bit selective. I always thought it was a safety of sorts.</p>

<p>More opinions would be appreciated!</p>

<p>Your SAT scores are great and also with those SAT II scores you shouldn’t worry that much. Try improving the GPA. According to your stats(IMO):</p>

<p>Fordham: low reach
St. John’s: match
Colgate: high match
Cornell: low reach
Brown: reach
Richmond: high match</p>

<p>Fordham- match
Brown- low reach
Colorado College- match
Cornell- low reach
Middlebury- reach
Colgate- match
Trinity, CT- high match
U of Richmond- high match</p>

<p>Oh lorddd, how do I tell adcoms that my GPA, despite being a 3.38 is still within the top 10% of our class? </p>

<p>I never thought of myself as an average student, but I’ve seen Americans get 3.7 GPAs even in the top 25% of their class. :(</p>

<p>Where do you guys reckon my GPA would fall under or be equivalent to in your system?</p>

<p>Fordham- high match
Brown- reach
St. John’s- match
Cornell- reach
Trinity, CT-match
SUNY ESF- low match
Franklin & Marshall- match
im not sure about the rest.
Good Luck!!</p>

<p>Fordham: low reach
Brown, Cornell, Middlebury: reaches
IMO the rest are matches</p>

<p>I think ad comms would know to base your gpa on your school’s/country’s context provided by your counselor? Not sure though!</p>

<p>Help me out? <a href=“[/url]”></a></p>

<p>@qonybit Already posted before man! haha</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>You have a great chance on getting into all of them.It is your GPA that bugs me.But you are certainly a great candidate for these colleges.

<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 from the Philippines, and I do need some financial aid, though I could pay for some of the expenses.</p>

<p>Thanks for the chance!</p>

<p>Honestly You have a high chance for all these schools, your gpa may be kind of low but you can totally get into all these school your ec makes up for it</p>

<p>Any more thoughts? </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>
