<p>Please chance me for Harvard, UPenn (Wharton in particular) and MIT. I will chance back. Thank you!</p>

<p>You've a got good chance. But the thing is that you don't really have anything that clearly distinguishes you from others. I think Penn is your best bet, because MIT and Harvard are just big rejecting machines</p>

<p>Can you please chance me? Thanks.</p>

<p>I'm definitely no expert, but it seems to me that unfortunately while you have many ecs, none of them are in great depth and there is little leadership.</p>

<p>MIT, Harvard, and Wharton are all extremely difficult to get into with extremely low acceptance rates. Most of the students who apply there are very qualified, just like you, but there needs to be something special about you for you to get in. You have a shot at all three but it's really unpredictable. Good luck.</p>

<p>You look really good on paper. Corno, how much leadership do they need? President of two clubs, a youth leader at their church, team captain. Not much depth there...? Anyway, I think you have as good of a chance as anyone at the top schools.</p>

<p>Your GPA/rank and test scores are really great. Your ECs aren't bad either, but they won't distinguish you from the rest of the applicants to those schools. If your essays/recs/interview were all amazing, I think you have pretty good chances. You never know what happens in the college process!</p>

<p>Please chance back hahaha</p>

<p>You seem pretty qualified but those ecs could be better</p>

<p>You seem qualified, but what is with that class rank?
With those stats, that class rank seems low. I'm just telling you to remember that you're competing with students that are ranked 1/583 people. Trying to be realistic, if they only looked at ranks, you'd probably be out. Just trying to be realistic.</p>

<p>Anyways, it could definitely go either way, you're well qualified for any of those schools.</p>

<p>I don't get what you guys are going on about the "no in depth extracurriculars".

Now I'm no expert, as we don't even have FBLA in our school but I don't think it gets much better than national recognition (and two times, at that).</p>
