<p>-Rec letters from:
<em>AP Euro and APUSH teacher. At the start of Euro he pulled me out of class to tell me he could see me at Harvard (naive, imo) and a month ago told me to come to him for any rec letter. He wrote me one for my school's leadership program, it spoke very highly.
(</em>Foreign Lang. Department Head. I had her for Spanish 4AP, 5AP, and I TA'd for her this last year. OR *AP Lit teacher: I'm currently the highest scorer in her class, and I had her last year the Creative Writing. Still not sure who to ask.)</p>

<p>bump-bump?</p>

<p>Forget about the ivies, but you have a good chance at the others. get your SAT up and you will get into most of the others, but your UW GPA needs to be higher for the ivies, especially yale.</p>

<p>chance me please.</p>

<p>Thanks, chanced back.</p>

<p>looks like a really good chance for Claremont McKenna though!</p>

<p>chance me!</p>

<p>I say still try for an ivy, never know. But agreed ^ , your chances for Claremont looks pretty good.</p>

<p>So should I spend $75 on each Ivy app?</p>

<p>I feel like you have a strong chance! Yale might be a slight reach tho. The EC's look strong! Im positive you'll get into most of the schools listed! :)</p>

<p>Chance me! (Don't wanna sound pushy lol)</p>

<p>Chanced back :)</p>

<p>Yale-high reach
Dartmouth-high reach
Claremont McKenna-match
Bowdoin-match
Carleton-match
Willamette-in
University of Redands-in</p>

<p>I think your gpa is going to hurt you the most with the ivies, and your average sat doesnt really help. Youd need to improve your test scores and write really good essays to have a good chance at the ivies, but i think youre in everywhere else.</p>

<p>High Reach at everything</p>

<p>The Ivies will be tough to get into, but for the other schools you should be perfectly on track! Best of luck!</p>

<p>(Chance me =])</p>

<p>Yale - high reach
Dartmouth - high reach
Claremont McKenna - high match
Bowdoin - match
Carleton - match
Willamette - in
University of Redands - in</p>

<p>You're GPA and SAT score are going to make the Dartmouth and Yale tough - definetly applying if you want to, but realize that you need to have backup options you're happy with. Good luck!</p>

<p>Please chance me back! <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1234291-chance-alaskan-top-schools.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1234291-chance-alaskan-top-schools.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Claremont McKenna is very quantitative - calc is required - your math grades will probably keep you out.</p>

<p>Forget Yale and Dartmouth. In for the other schools!</p>

<p>Chance me pleaseee</p>
