<p>Thanks in advance!</p>

<p>You are applying to colleges that don't offer financial aid to intls for most part. Your resume looks good enough for you to be applying to more HYPM schools. Other than that, the chances on your current list depend on the RD pool for the 2016 entering class.</p>

<p>^ I love the diplomacy of the above answer. And of Liveulife's answers in general :D</p>

<p>I won't comment any further :P</p>

<p>GTech has rolling admissions. You are probably already in. If you're full pay..most likely in at Stanford. :D enjoy Palo Alto</p>
