<p>Applying:
ED - Either Wharton or Cornell AEM (depends on what chances you give me)
University of Chicago - EA
University of Michigan Ann Arbor - EA (pre-admit Ross)
UC Berkeley
Johns Hopkins
Emory
Maybe HYPS</p>

<p>Decent chance at all but Wharton and HYPS. Taking the SAT 4 times will really hurt.</p>

<p>Aren't you Jebarpolsky?</p>

<p>Thanks. I thought Wharton really focuses on leadership, which I have a lot of?</p>

<p>I have the same question as Jersey.</p>

<p>you are in at Wharton and Harvard. YPS is maybe.</p>

<p>Yeah, I have the same question as Jersey and swimstar, I remember JebarPolsky also wrote about the Guitar Club being so popular and being the founder.
JebarPolsky hangs out on the UPenn forum and is interested in Wharton as well.</p>

<p>Just to let you know, you won't have enough room on the common app for all those awards and ECs.</p>

<p>LOL 2000hrs of gym work out. Is this serious? Put that on your application please!!!</p>

<p>I <3 u.</p>

<p>Well it's pretty obvious that you are Jebarpolsky although I am a bit perplexed as to why you chose to post under this other account. Regardless I would advise against using projected SAT scores seeing as it isn't possible for you to know your June/4th Testing Date scores yet.</p>

<p>This looks great! I like how you submitted your abstract of EE, I am doing that too! I think you are in :)</p>

<p>Wharton - You're a typical Wharton applicant with below-average scores, honestly nothing really stands out.
Cornell AEM - you have a good chance if you're able to show that you're a good fit for the program which they stress.
University of Chicago - Decent chance if app comes out well.
University of Michigan Ann Arbor(pre-admit Ross) - In.
UC Berkeley - In.
Johns Hopkins - In.
Emory - In.
Maybe HYPS - I don't see this happening.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>Jebarpolsky? lolzz definitely</p>

<p>.... You guys stalk college confidential way too much if u can tell who this poster is. I never even heard of jebarpolsky.</p>

<p>^ He (JebarPolsky) made multiple chance threads in different forums, so I saw his stats several times -- his ECs are pretty distinctive.</p>

When you see 20 chance threads in the period of a month all with "cloud chamber" and "linear particle accelerator" listed as ECs, it's pretty easy to identify the poster.</p>

<p>Harvard and Princeton accept score choice, I highly suggest that for those two schools you only send in the the 4th SAT attempt. Same goes from MIT , you'll know which schools when you send your scores online.</p>
