<p>Assuming good recs and essays, what do you think? Thanks!</p>

<p>I am also applying to Emory, Univ. of Pittsburgh Honors, Penn State Honors, Case Western, Wash. in St. Louis, and Columbia. I applied to UPenn early decision.
I also forgot I played on the tennis team for 4 years, conducted research at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, have played the piano for 9 years (multiple awards) and violin (Pittsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra, Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestra).</p>

<p>I think thats it: thanks for any and all responses</p>

<p>Your test scores all look outstanding enough for any school. Your National Merit status is a big plus too. But what's your GPA? I'd assume it isn't good looking at your class rank.</p>

<p>All I can say for now is you've got some guts in filling out all the applications for so many schools and paying their application fees...</p>

<p>Sorry- my GPA is 3.80/4 unweighted and 4.80/5 weighted. I don't think this matters, but Im middle class from Pennsylvania; Im also an AP scholar; ive taken all honors/AP courses in high school (most out of any other student), but my school only counts 4 honors classes per semester towards weighted GPA, and honors and AP classes count the same, so thats why my class rank sucks so much (a few too many Bs haha) thanks again for the help!</p>

<p>Here's my humble opinion reguarding your chances at these schools:</p>

UPenn (ED)...Good
Johns Hopkins...Good
UNC-Chapel Hill...Good
UM-Ann Arbor...Good
Northwestern...Very Good
Emory...Very Good
USC...Very Good
Case Western...Excellent
Penn State-Honors...Excellent

<p>Just remember that your essays and recs should be excellent. Just my 2 cents. Hope this helps. :)</p>

<p>You'll need a heck of a great app and great recs to penetrate the better schools on your list. You're solid at UMichigan, USC, Georgetown and Northwestern.</p>

<p>17 schools! Wow, I wouldn't spend that much money! Good luck.</p>

<p>Actually- Im pretty lucky- I don't have to pay application fees to Case Western, Pitt, Penn State, Swarthmore, Johns Hopkins, Washington in St Louis, USC, or UNC. That still is a lot of money though, especially with reporting your scores</p>
