Chances of getting into Yale?????

<p>Help me out,
what do you think are my chances of getting into Yale?</p>

<p>GPA: 3.97 unweighted
4.27 weighted
SAT I Math: 750
SAT I Writing: 720
SAT I Critical Reading: 690
ACT 34 (9 on writing)</p>

<p>played football all 4 years, captain as a senior
played club rugby 4 years</p>

<p>5's on ap comp sci AB, us history and world history</p>

<p>What additional information can you offer? Any other extra-curriculars? Class rank? Subject Test scores? Location? Competitiveness of high school? Race/ethnicity (unless you intend to omit)?</p>

<p>hey silverturtle
could you plz chance me
<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>and @heyo58
u need more info</p>

<p>What will set you apart from all the other equally qualified applicants?</p>

<p>EC's i did: We The People(competition civics) in 12th grade
ethnicity: plane white
Class rank: 6 of 650
Location: SF bay area, CA</p>

<p>If that is all the extracurriculars then Yale is a high, high reach, but you never know.</p>

<p>really? what the eff do they want? i play rugby and football, how am i supposed to do much else?</p>

<p>It'll be tough. Your grades are great and being on varsity for two sports is considered good (are you planning to continue either of these? That could help.)
Do you have any volunteer work? One EC and in senior year will hurt your app. They want people who are involved in the community and sports are generally not enough.
Last thing... definitely send ACT, NOT SAT. Your ACT is much better than your SAT, it will help.</p>

<p>well i already sent both test scores haha...
but my ec we the people was effing ridiculous. 15 hrs/wk for 20 weeks. Do you think that'll help at all?</p>

<p>No. I honestly can't see you getting in.</p>

<p>whateva, I'm already into UCLA....
nicer weather, hotter females
thanks for the feedback though</p>

<p>No. You need to be more realistic.</p>

<p>something just dawned on me, there isn't a whole lot of personality on there forums......
i think i like my chances if i have to compete with robots like you people</p>

<p>good for you.</p>

<p>Don't ask for a chance if you can't take the criticism. </p>

<p>I mean you got football as your only extracurricular? ok...durrr I play football let me into yale...durr</p>

<p>Your chance is 0%</p>

<p>Consider yourself lucky to have made it into UCLA</p>

<p>^ If he's good enough, the OP could potentially get recruited for football. That's what happened to a guy at my school -- his only extracurricular was soccer, yet he was accepted to Yale because they recruited him. :)</p>

<p>If he was good enough to be recruited, he wouldn't be asking about his admission chances...just sayin'.</p>

<p>Pretty good. Try and contact the coach and let him or her know of your interest in Yale. Being recruited is very good, obviously..</p>

<p>I'm sorry heyo but I agree with most other people on this thread, with the lack of community service I think you have a pretty low chance at Yale. Your gpa and ACT are excellent, but there are a lot of academically qualified applicants applying to Yale. Good EC's (including community service and volunteer work) are practically a requirement for admission into any ivy league school.</p>

<p>I disagree with wcsccsmc you didn't have to get lucky to get into UCLA.</p>

<p>You have a very low chance, to be honest. As already said, your lack of ECs and community service hurt you. Your scores didn't help. Still, good luck! :)</p>
