<p>How do you know your AP scores already?</p>

<p>I think you have a good chance.</p>

<p>They're projected, haha. I'm just really confident about them. I studied extremely hard.</p>

<p>Don't predict your score... it might just make you feel bad (from experience). Anyway, you have a very good amount of awards, especially at a national level. I also believe you have an above average chance.</p>

<p>Okay, thank you.</p>

<p>Your extracurricular activities are pretty diversified, yet focused enough that you are able to go in-depth with them. The grades and scores give you credit as a student as well. Though I don't believe anyone has an above average chance (barring celebrities, legacies, etc.), I think your admission decision is contingent on how well you wrote your essays, which, given your experience, should be awesome =).</p>

<p>Thank you:]
Anyone else?</p>

<p>I think you are a great applicant. The only problem has nothing to do with your wonderful qualifications -- with a 9% admit rate many, many very qualified applicants so it's probably best not to put your eggs in one basket emotionally or otherwise.</p>

<p>I think you need to chill, bro. That's what I think.</p>

<p>I'm going to be frank: This sounds nice on paper and all, but how much is there to you besides these stats? Who are you as a person, not as a college machine? That's what you should think about.</p>

<p>Burry: Thank you. I'm completely aware of how difficult it is to be accepted to an Ivy, no matter how many great things I've achieved. I'm realistic, and I will be applying to quite a few 'match' and 'safety' schools.</p>

<p>CBatch: Haha. I'm not a bro :) I'm very passionate about everything that I am involved in outside of school. I'm not some 'college machine' as you put it. I didn't do anything EC-wise for the sake of admission to top colleges. I've had many family and socially-related issues throughout my life, which got in the way of my academics throughout my freshman and sophomore years. This year, I really stepped it up.</p>

<p>Good essay and you're in</p>

<p>Very Nice! Your ec's are very nice. </p>

<p>I want to go to Brown really bad lol I love how diversified it is</p>

<p>Wow, I failed at grammar in my last post! "Eeek"</p>

<p>Your GPA is really gonna hurt you but your EC's are awesome.</p>
