<p>As far as majors go, I'm very undecided, leaning more towards math/science than the humanities. I'm looking for schools that are strong in both math/science and the humanities though. Please offer me suggestions/comments!! Thanks a lot!</p>

<p>please help!</p>

<p>any thoughts at all?</p>

<p>anyone???? i really need help about where to apply</p>

<p>i think you have a good chance...ur location could either help or hurt you...</p>

<p>I think you also have a good chance, but it depends on how competitive your region is and your essays and recs, etc.</p>

<p>But, yeah, you have a chance.</p>

<p>i think i will have strong recs and hopefully a strong essay...</p>

<p>thanks for the advice, any suggestions for safety/probable/match schools?</p>

<p>i know a lot of people are applying to stanford, but i'd really appreciate some feedback about other good schools for me.</p>

<p>please help</p>

<p>The whole entire world and maybe the surrounding planets plans on applying EA to Stanford.</p>

<p>i'd say 50-50 at stanford. which is way up from 1/10. xD good luck... i think you'll need it (not to imply anything about you personally, but a lot of people have similiar/better stats/ec's at these elite schools)</p>

<p>If you don't get in it won't hurt to throw apps at Brown and Penn, both great schools right belows HPS</p>

<p>I don't want to be mean, but I will give the blunt truth. As with many applicants that have been rejected, I think a crucial part that you are missing is the diversity prospect. AKA broading your horizions to different races and religions. As with your math, not sure what you meant when you mean Sequential II and III, if this is calc 2nd year and 3rd year, you are in good shape. If those were in alegbra/trig/geometry you might get into trouble there, despite a decent SAT II math score. Your SAT score will definately put you in the competative pool for normal applicants (non-sports/special talents). As with Stanford this year, many are expecting a record number of ED applicants this year, so expect it to be a very very competative pool, worse than normal years. So I'd put you're chances at around 30% overall.
As for duke, i think you have a very nice shot there.</p>

<p>I live in New Mexico and I am planning on applying to Stanford, RD. Is that an advantage? (based on location)</p>
