<p>If you leave the link, I will definitely Chance Back.</p>

<p>bump, bump, bump</p>

<p>You have a GPA lol? I'm assuming it's 3.9+ cause of number 2 status.
EC's are pretty good, and some good essay topic possbilities (culture shock as a Chinese immigrant, etc.).</p>

<p>SAT's and PSAT's are excellent. Summer activities are good, and I'd suggest using your eventual blackbelt to teach karate?</p>

<p>Other than that, they're all reaches (HYPS and MIT and other ivies are crapshots anyway)</p>

<p>you have chosen a lot of schools that are basically random. HYPSM are always impossible to chance. Unfortunately you sound stereotypically asian, so it might be a real reach, unless you live in an underrepresented area. Caltech is also a reach, and Olin is really too small to judge (my school is sending about 5 people there), you just have to interview really well. I would say you are closer to a match for the rest of the schools you listed, though some are easier than others, Fordham and Vanderbilt are easily the most likely. </p>

<p>chance me back? <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/898730-chances-duke-penn-cornell.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/898730-chances-duke-penn-cornell.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>MIT - Reach
Harvard - High Reach
Caltech - Reach
Stanford High Reach
Princeton High Reach
(because they are for everyone</p>

<p>UChicago Match
Cornell Match
Duke Match
Vanderbilt Low Match

<p>you chose a good range of schools from reaches to safeties. I agree with the person on top of me except I think the high reaches are just regular reaches. You are competitive at every school in the nation with your stats but Harvard, Princeton, Stanford and MIT are unpredictable as I’m sure you already know.</p>

<p>Thanks for the imput. I just got my SAT II scores back.</p>

<p>780s for both Math II and Physics. Would that still be good enough for my school choices? </p>

<p>I might retake the Math II later, though.</p>
