Chances at my LOOOOOONG list of schools, + 3 Dream Schools??-12 Total-

<p>Hello everyone! Just to let you know, I am NOT WinterMooseChic, I am a friend. I never recived confirmation for my user name, so at the moment I'm going to use my friends user name, but once I post my stat's I will be off, and she will be the only one using it. Just letting you know so your not always curious if it is me on or WMC.
Next point: I am going to post my stat's, or what I know so far, so that you can try to help me and evaluate my chances at my dream schools.
Then I would also like you to, if you want, list any good college matches for me that you can think of. What I'm looking for in a college:
-Small but not to small, not too large either-Good political science and journalisim program/departments-Volleyball in the athletics department :)(dosen't have to though)- A "quaint" town. No colleges in the heart of the city would help!-
A little about me: Hm, I'm a white female, 17 years old, umm I go to a small private prep school, I live in the North East half of the U.S, and I think thats all you really need to know!
My Dream Schools: *Yale *Harvard *Brown (Thats all my dream schools for you!)
The other schools I'm interested in: *UConn *C of Holy Cross *Springfield College *Mount Saint Mary's U *( I guess this would be a good time to tell you that I AM Catholic, but my school doesn't have to be Catholic) *Rutgers at Camden *Marist College *UNC-Chapel Hill *Furman *College of Charleston</p>

<p>I think thats it! Let me know if you need more!!</p>

<p>I think you need some more match schools. You have your reaches, you have tons of safeties.</p>

<p>Hey, I'm going to major in political science and journalism too, but I'm not applying to any of the same schools (except UConn but I live in Storrs so I want to go away).</p>

<p>I agree that you probably need more matches. Also, do Yale, Harvard, and Brown have journalism majors? It might be worth it anyway but I think Cornell is the only Ivy league that does. Anyway I think you're in at most of those. Good luck.</p>

<p>Thanks!! Anyone else got any suggestions or thoughts?</p>

<p>Hey WinterMoose!
I think you have a pretty good chance at most of your schools. You're taking 2 AP's and all the rest are Honors courses, which look good on a resume. Your EC's look pretty good also. Most of them show a long term comittment. I'm not sure of your grades, but hey, no ones complaining about top 10%, and a 4.0, with a 1450 on your SAT! I supposed Harvard, Brown and Yale all are within reach distance, except, so many kids apply, you have nothing that stands out over the crowd. I still think you've got plenty of chances though!!! Good Lucky to ya!</p>

<p>the dream schools - reaches
UNC Chapel Hill - match/slight reach
the rest are all safties. I agree with Encom, wouldn't hurt to find a few more match schools</p>

<p>This may sound stereotypical, and it makes me seem like an ass, but you're too smart to be a cheerleader.</p>

<p>Take a look at the midwest - Northwestern for journalism or Notre Dame (the "Catholic Ivy").</p>

<p>You need matches. Northwestern, Emory, Cornell, WUSTL, Vanderbilt are all great.</p>

<p>I do not like your chances at those top schools but the ret are great...</p>

<p>What's up with the 1450 SAT by the way? Is that on the old scale or something?</p>

<p>The thread is SIX years old. S</p>

<p>Assuming your SAT is out of 1600, most likely acceptance at every institution except Yale, Harvard, and Brown</p>
