<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>You look on track but no one on here really knows. Only noticeable weak point is the Math 2C score but otherwise your academic credentials look to be on point.</p>

<p>Yea you have similar spec to me except you have hooks where i didn't and I got Early Decision. That doesn't mean you'll DEFINITELY get in, but it means you have a good shot. Are you planning on applying early or regular?</p>

<p>Since when is a 740 SAT Math II a weak score?</p>

<p>I think you have a great shot at JHU!</p>

<p>I think you have really good chances, especially if you are applying ED</p>

<p>really dont see any weak spots (a 740 on Math II is not weak at all)</p>

<p>Wow, thanks guys. I'm actually applying to JHU reguarl decision (Princeton is my early choice). And yeah, I only took math II because I planned on applying to MIT, but not anymore. Hopefully it wont hold me back!</p>

<p>^yea, you don't have to submit it anyways. The Math SAT 2C is weak due to the percentile (68th). I imagine most of the posters commenting on that score never took it (I did as I was an engineer).</p>

<p>Here is MIT's Math breakdown for the Math 2C:</p>

<p>760-800 (25th to 75th percentile).</p>

<p>It should be similar for JHU engineers given how JHU's math range (for all majors) is close to MIT's.</p>

<p>Write good essays and you're in ... Nice work, and Hopkins is a GREAT school where you'll be pushed hard, won't have fake Ivy grade inflation or prententions, and be in a "real world" environment.</p>
