Native American citizenship</p>

<p>To an unhooked applicant with the same stats as you, I'd say very little chance for Princeton, Dartmouth, Duke, Vanderbilt, and WashU, particularly because you're not in the top 10% of your class.</p>

<p>But you're lucky. Native Americans are the most underrepresented of URMs. Which means that the requirements will be a little less tight on you. Your ACT score is average, but definitely won't get you rejected. Your UW GPA is decent. If you get those scores or higher on your SAT IIs, that'll be good. You're receiving a full IB diploma, which is great. I'm guessing you're upper class, and while that may somewhat cancel out your URM benefits as a Hispanic or African American, it probably won't hurt much for Native American because there are so few competitive applicants.</p>

<p>Anyways, I'm done rambling. Here are my predictions:</p>

<p>Safety: None (Find a good safety!)
Good Match: Pomona, Northwestern, Tufts, Boston College
Low Reach: Duke, Vaderbilt, Wash U St. Louis
Low-to-mid Reach: Princeton, Dartmouth</p>

<p>Honestly, I think you're in at all schools except Princeton and Dartmouth, and you've got a good chance at those two as well. You're definitely getting more acceptance letters than rejection letters.</p>

<p>Best of luck on all your apps! :)</p>
