Chances for Rice

<p>Hi CC'ers, </p>

<p>I am a senior in high school this year and trying to gauge my chances at Rice. </p>

<p>I have about a 3.8 UW and a 5.2 (on 6.0 scale) Weighted GPA. </p>

<p>I had 3 B's in Freshman Year, 2 B's and 1 C in Sophomore Year, and all A's Junior and so far in Senior Year. </p>

<p>I have a 2200 on my SAT, and got a 4 on AP Human, 4 on Calc AB, 5 on English 3, 5 on APUSH, 5 on Euro, but a 2 on Chem. </p>

<p>I have the most amazing Recommendation letters. From 2 teachers that love me, from a doctor I have mentored with, and from a professor at MIT. </p>

<p>But the best part about my resume are my extra-curricular activities, </p>

<li>Funded by MIT for two years in a row to build project for 3rd world nations. Each year receiving 10,000 from MIT. </li>
<li>DECA District Officer, Secretary of 4,000 Student District</li>
<li>State- Qualified for Debate</li>
<li>State- Science Fair</li>
<li>Published Research Paper in medical journal --- first author</li>

<p>But the most interesting I think is, </p>

<p>I own and manage a chain of frozen yogurt stores. With these stores, I have made over 1mil in revenue and 400k in profit. </p>

<p>My essays are damn fantastic. </p>

<p>What do you think my chances for RICE are? </p>


<p>“Hello, I’m Applicant X with a 3.8 GPA, 2200 SAT, and oh yeah, when I’m not killing it academically, I kick back with MIT profs and make 400k off of a chain of frozen yogurt stores that I own and manage”</p>

<p>Yeah, I think that you’re probably in…especially if the MIT prof actually knows you.</p>

<p>Also, that research paper in the medical journal…wow. I think you can get into many places…</p>
