<p>I dont think giving up and become a janitor is a good idea, especially with such great STATS! try a hobo as a job.... tats more for of a fit i think :D</p>

<p>what do you want to major in and why? :)</p>

<p>i meant princeton up there when I asked what my chances were. And I think economics because it fascinates me</p>

<p>Clearly your scores are amazing and are good enough for any school.. I think your ec's are what hurt you with penn... you clearly have scores higher than the average kid at penn.. but I don't see any consistency or clear specific interests know what i mean?</p>
