some community service (60-80 hours?)
Honour Roll, 90+ average every year in HS

<p>Counselour rec is kinda just a laundry list, but it's really good (short)
Teacher recs are very very good, considering they've never written recs for american universities before
Essay is still being finalized, i gues it's sort of a cliche topic, but i think it's very personal and it shows what kind of person I am
I'd like to major in Bio, probably pre-med</p>

<p>I really didn't care a lot about American universities till I visited some of the campuses and it just seems like I'll get a better education in a better atmosphere there. If i had known before, I would had taken my SATs earlier and applied ED.</p>

<p>Chances at
Cornell (Top Choice, wanna get in soooooo bad)
Johns Hopkins

<p>I'll apply for Financial aid at Cornell, since Canadians are considered with Americans, but not at JHU and Mich</p>

<p>Thanks a bunch</p>

<p>i think you have a very good chance at cornell, especially ED. cornell's ED acceptance rate is pretty high (somewhere in the 50-60%).
Good Luck!</p>

<p>You have a good chance if you up the writing score. Eh!
Anyway, hmm, Asian male pianist wants to do pre-med...stand out through FOOTBALL!</p>

<p>lol, i really don't know of any other asians who play football, but i'm sure there's more . . .
it's just such a great sport, i joined for all the wrong reasons, but i really came to love it, and how it really just brings people together</p>

<p>thanks for the input guys</p>

<p>to be honest, i think you are an average Canadian applicants for Cornell and JHU.. i think it'd be neat to concentrate on football though in some parts to stand out.</p>

<p>i really didn't want to write an essay about football, or being asian and playing football for that matter
it's a really cliche topic isn't it? i'm sure i could make it pretty good, but i could just see an adcom going "oh god, not another 'what football has taught me' essay"</p>

<p>yeah, you have good chances at Cornell</p>

<p>I've talked to regional director for internationals from Cornell, they get about 300-400 applications from Canada each year
there's about 70 Canadians in each year @ Cornell
umm, from what i figure, most Canadians who apply to Cornell, or any american universities for that matter will be extremely qualified but might think of Cornell as somewhat of a safety for HYPS
according to regional director, acceptance rate for Canadians is "higher than average" because Canadians do very well at Cornell</p>

<p>Cornell is really my top choice . . i like it a lot. i'm really punishing myself for not taking the SAT earlier and applying ED though, which would have helped me a lot</p>

<p>Hmm . . . should I change my essay topic?</p>

<p>bump to bring back up to first page</p>

<p>thanks for all your opinions</p>
