Chances for MIT?

<p>Would you guys tell me my chances for MIT?</p>

<p>Here are my stats:</p>

<p>White Male
4.0/4.0 GPA (unweighted)
27 Composite on ACT (Retaking for 30+)
Have taken SAT II Physics, Math I, and Writing, expecting above 700 for all
AP English
Post-Secondary English
AP Calculus</p>

NHS VP (11-12)
Robotics Club (10-12)
Spanish Club (11-12)
Biology Lab Aide/Researcher (9-12)
Academic Challenge (10, 12)</p>


<p>but ur ecs are a little weak... i think u have a better chance than most of the people on these message boards though...</p>

<p>a 27 composite for ACT is really not going to cut it O_O</p>

<p>What about a 30 ACT Composite?
I'd also like to emphasize how much time being a Bio Aide takes. I don't have any study halls or lunch periods. Any free time is used in the Bio Lab.</p>

<p>Is your Bio Lab research all on the same topic th past years? If it is that is realy good, becuase colleges like people who have a passion for something, and if you work on the Bio Lab for a huge amount of time all of the past years its going to to increse your chances alot(as far as I know).</p>

<p>Also great GPA, good job.</p>

<p>I've researched/assissted with water quality testing for the past 3 years. It's pretty interesting stuff. However, I'm planning to enter into a more engineering/math related area. Does this hurt my chances?</p>

<p>It's hard to get into MIT with only two APs, even though one of them is calculus.</p>

<p>I'd also like to mention my ACT subject scores:</p>

<p>32 English
28 Math
25 Science Reasoning
22 Reading</p>

<p>27 Composite</p>

<p>Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could raise my Sci. Reasoning and Reading scores? I've read Princeton Review books, but I still have trouble answering all the questions in those sections in the 35 minutes they give you.</p>

<p>For MIT they only want to know what major your thinking about taking. So I doubt it will hurt anything. I think it should be good.</p>

<p>My high school is pretty small and the only other AP course offered is AP English 12. I opted for post-secondary English instead.</p>
