<p>Stanford-It's a toss-up, since they swited their early thingy, a lot of people are doing early action, so this year stanford ea is supposedly going to be brutal</p>

<p>Yale-another toss-up</p>

<p>Princeton- 60% chance, you're solid, but subjective factors play into it </p>

<p>Georgetown-75% chance, I don't see you having a ton of trouble here (are you doing sfs? that could make it more difficult, seeing they get 18,000 applications)</p>

<p>Wellesley-90% chance, you're probably in</p>

<p>Thanks celebrian25. What other schools should I consider applying to?</p>

<p>could you give some information about what your looking for in a school? small or big? rural or city? northeast or southwest? cold or hot? LAC or university? Big greek life? social scene? engineering or creative writing? low or high diversity? public or private? presence of alcohol? women's college or coed? unified campus spread through city? academic strength? sports? fitness center? </p>

<p>just some suggestions on what could be important to you</p>

<p>I just thought I would let you know that based on your stats, you will be successful wherever you end up going. You have already shown that you will excel, through your achievements exhibited to date. Don't stress, even if you didn't choose to go to an ivy, statistics show that candidates that could get in to ivies, but that choose not to, are just as successful as those that do go to ivies. Good luck, your parents must be so proud of you.</p>

<p>You have a great shot at most of these. YPS could go either way, so cushion yourself with matches that are higher rated than Gtown and Wellesley. My advice is seriously look into the "middle Ivies" and Duke. Choose a couple, I know many who have gotten into Yale and a place like Brown and have gone to Brown once they visited.</p>

<p>Thanks everyone!</p>

<p>BUMP! Thanks for your help everyone!</p>

<p>I think your chances of getting into all those schools are high!! don't worry about it! as long as your essays and recommendations are good, i'm sure you'll be fine. and even if you don't get in, from what I can tell, you still have had an amazing high school experience!! good luck!</p>

<p>Bump please! :)</p>

<p>I think that Harvard, Yale, and Stanford share their EA pool, meaning that you can apply EA to 2 or 3 of them. Why not apply EA to Yale too? Regarding your chances - you obviously know that you have a fighting chance at the most selective schools in the country. Why are you asking us to critique your chances? Just apply to where you really want to attend, because you have as good of a chance as anybody.</p>

<p>harvard yale and stanford can't possibly share their EA pool because they're all single choice EA... you can only apply to one of them early</p>

<p>You might be right, but EA is nonbinding, whereas ED is binding. I <em>heard</em> that Harvard, Stanford, and Yale share their pools, although I might be wrong.</p>
