<p>What are my chances at Brown, JHU, Darthmouth, Columbia, and Georgetown?</p>

<p>Same as everyone else's with great stats. Are you planning on international relations/government or biology major? Write killer essays, make them WANT you there. One JHU adcom I heard said he was looking for "brochureable" applicants and kids with different interests. In other words, if you're pre-med, all your ECs shouldn't be science related.</p>

<p>I am planning on majoring in political science</p>

<p>bump, bump</p>

<p>I'd say they are all iffy, since asians are in a pretty competative pool. You best shot may be at Georgia Tech if you mention all your have done there.</p>

More stuff i forget right now~</p>

<p>So chances at stanford, brown, harvard, ucb, ucla?</p>

<p>also any advice on essays would be nice, im a great writer but have trouble gettin started sumtimes~ maybe im just lazy</p>

<p>ucla = good shape
ucb = good shape
Brown = slight reach, because alot of students come in with IB credits, but they are usually beat by students who come in with all College Level courses instead and received the same mark. A 1550 sat score as you predicited, would give you a good shot at getting accepted
Stanford and Harvard are a reach, because a 1500s SAT score is usually competative if you don't plan to play for their sports teams or bring a very unique talent to the campus.</p>
