<p>Please help!!!!</p>

<p>Bump bump bump</p>

<p>None of those schools are reaches apart from UVA and USC (Cal) might be a slight reach</p>

<p>Thank you!! :)</p>

<p>Anyone else?!</p>

<p>I agree with jkaplan. You look like quite a competitive applicant and I think you'll get into most, if not all of the schools in your list. Don't worry so much.</p>

<p>syracuse, Tulane, and VT are all pretty much sure shots for you but do you live in virginia? because applying instate vs. out of state is a completely different story to UVA because of their charter that forces them to accept 2/3 of their students instate...but other then that you have a really good shot at all of those</p>

<p>Yes, I live in VA.. hopefully that will help!</p>

<p>jewels03... I think you're really doubting yourself; I think you're in at Tulane, VT, and South Carolina; you have a great GPA, solid SAT, and great extra-currics... just how many AP's/Honors have you taken b/c that's huge? otherwise, I'd say UVA is your biggest reach, and from VA, I'd say USC is a low-middle reach (def within your range)</p>

<p>6 APs and all honors (except a bio class in 10th grade... haha)... Southern Cal is my dream school, but the applicant stats on here make it seem so hard! Yeah, UVA is a big reach, especially since a lot of higher-ranked kids from my school are applying.</p>

<p>nah, with that transcript, (which is almost identical to mine, lol)... it seems like USC shouldn't be too difficult for you; one of my friends is applying and he has a great shot w/ a 1390 SAT (which is a little higher), but I don't think his extra-currics are as solid as yours... you shouldn't worry too much about USC; UVA is a cinch, though, for in-staters (I just realized you live in VA)... in fact, I'd say you get in to all your schools, w/ a possible deferral from UVA (but from Virginia, you have a much better shot)</p>

<p>Ahhhh, thanks Now I can just stress til April rolls around! Hehe woooo</p>

<p>Why would Tulane be a reach for you? I'd almost call it a safety!
Chance</a> if you've got the time!</p>

<p>Haha, I think I'm overestimating it... oh well, I wouldn't want to get myself hyped for anything. Anyone else?!</p>

<p>Thanks for giving me a chance!</p>

<p>Tulane - High Match
Syracuse - Match
USC - Southern Cal - Slight reach
USC - South Carolina - I'm from SC, and I'd say you're definitely in =P
UVA - Slight reach (better chances since you're in-state)
Virginia Tech - In</p>

<p>Thank you :)</p>

<p>Bump pleaseeeee</p>
