<p>i kno you guys aren't admissions officers, but i'm just curious</p>

<p>You've got a good shot at admission. You have similar stats and extraciricculars that I had, with higher SAT scores (I got in with a 1250). If you get in, please come. It's always nice to have more new yorkers on campus. </p>

<p>BTW, do you go to Stuyvesant high school? My dad teachers some history courses there.</p>

<p>BTW, do you go to Stuyvesant high school?</p>

<p>Don't know about the OP, but I do, incidentally. Were you the guy holding the Q&A session on Monday? Props on that if you were.</p>
