Chance me please <3

Asian female
Intended Major: Physics/Astrophysics</p>

<p>UW GPA: 4.00/4.00
Rank: 1/500+
SAT I: 2350/2400
SAT II: Math II: 800/800 Physics: 800/800 World History: 780/800</p>

<p>ECs:
President of Quasar Club (2007-present)
Vice President of Physics Club (2008-present)
Math Club (2007-present)
USA Physics Olympics
Varsity Tennis Team</p>

<p>Research Experience:
Did research on quasars with an astrophysics professor from Stanford University summer of 2009.</p>

<p>Comm Svc:
Volunteered at a hospital (100+)</p>

<p>You seem to not have a lot of EC, but what you do have is very, very solid. You have amazing academics, and have some very specified EC. Some more leadership roles would help, as would more EC in general, but I feel youre in a pretty darned good spot right now.</p>

<p>Now, I want you to remember that all the schools you listed are among the best in the world, and that they can reject and accept whoever they please. Given that:</p>

<p>HPSM -High Match
Caltech-High Match
U Chicago-Match
UC Berkeley-Match
Duke-Match
Cornell- low match
UCLA- very very low match almost safety
Stanford - match. Okay, you worked with Stanford, which is a huge plus. Why aren't you looking there!?</p>

<p>Chance back?</p>

<p>H 10%
P 10%
S 20%
M 20%
Caltech 40%
U Chicago 20%
UC Berkeley 80%
Duke 50%
Cornell 50%
UCLA 95%</p>

<p>I think that you have a great shot. In your application, I would come across as very passionate about physics but play up your other interests (tennis, etc.). HPSM are tricky to figure out who can get in and who can't but the fact that you did research with a Stanford professor is a huge plus, especially if you can get a recommendation from him/her. Other than those schools I think you are basically in at Chicago,Berkeley, Cornell, Duke, and UCLA. Caltech is tough to get in, but I think you have a really good shot as long as you don't come across as one dimensional in your application.</p>

<p>Where do you get these numbers?
And UCLA might reject her, since her stats are too good. They will think that she only applied to UCLA as a safety or something.</p>

<p>synny201 - Thanks! I said HPSM so yes Stanford is definitely one of my top choices, if I can get in. :)</p>

<p>RoughAnswer - Thank you!</p>

<p>StarryEyed93 - Thanks for the advice! I'll keep it in mind.</p>

<p>lebronjames - I'm not a troll. I earned those scores. And my school doesn't weight grades, so anyone with a 4.00 is rank 1. Why does it matter that this is my first post? Can you give me some feedback please?</p>

<p>Shoe in for every college in existence.</p>

<p>^ not true...nobody is a shoe in, but that aside with those stats and ec's a very good chance. What looks good is that your ec's show a strong devotion to your area of interest. Now top it all off with good essays and i think you'll see a lot of acceptances next spring.</p>

<p>I dont see why they wouldn't accept you, but you never know with those extremely selective schools. AMAZING stats though! </p>
