<p>I'm considering applying to the following schools:
UT-Austin (already in thanks to the top 10% policy)

<p>i know they're reaches. i'm fine with going to ut, but if i have a chance at any of these places i'd sure like to know.</p>

<p>so, please give me some feedback.
short and to the point, long and thought provoking, harsh and brutally honest, anything!!! all is welcome.</p>

<p>I only am really familiar with Duke, but I would say it's leaning towards a deny.</p>

<p>aright that's cool, i did ask for honesty. anyone else?</p>

<p>Your chance:</p>

Stanford...Less Likely

<p>You should ED/EA at the one you like the most , as it will help your chances. Also, if you are a URM, I'd check the box as it will help you too. Chances would be Okay to Good. Again, that is (checking your race/ethnicity) a personal choice.</p>

<p>I would put down your ethenticity, because it plays a minute role when there is a virtual tie. They will usually allow underrepresented minorities in first.</p>

<p>Are you guys kidding me??? He has a great shot at every one of these schools. </p>

<p>The fact that he has great stats, is hispanic, and from an area that most colleges would feel adds to their geographic diversity indeed puts the odds in his favor. </p>

<p>Some of you here might be trying to dissuade him from applying since he is such a competitive applicant...:)</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>-NYU class of '00</p>

<p>I agree. I think you're a solid applicant. Now I don't know if most of these people are high school students or college students or maybe I'm naive about the entire process but your race and stats will play REALLY well. Not to sound racist but most Hispanics not tend to do well on academics stuff but you obviously did so colleges will love your cultural diversity and this whole thing about "overcoming obstacles" some college advisors put out</p>

<p>btw how do you get people to look at your stats b/c I posted for quite a while now and no one answers me EVER</p>

<p>You look like a pretty good applicant but why are you withholding your race. I have a friend who's last name is hispanic but he is actually from the phillipines. If so then witholding your race is a good idea.</p>

<p>Hey...I think I know who you are.
