<p>You are certainly a very strong candidate. I think you have a great chance. Hopefully we both can get accepted!!!</p>

<p>scores are somewhat weak, what kinds of extracurriculars do you do that make you stand out? There are many people applying to these top schools that have grades and numbers better than you. what makes YOU stand out?</p>

<p>if you get a chance, would you like to chance me back?</p>

<p>Hiiiii… so out of all the current Duke students/graduated kids from my school that I’ve talked to. You can a decent chance, but at this level where your grades are very high and your ECs are great, but not AMAZING (like hypsm level), it honestly is just a crapshoot. So hopefully your essay is amazing. :slight_smile:
Good luck to both on us!</p>

<p>Hey it looks like you are very similar to me, with some test score deviations. Hopefully we both have a shot!</p>

<p>Chance me if you could:</p>
