<p>Any other recommendations on schools that are known for their poli sci/int. relations programs?</p>

<p>How about Tufts?</p>

<p>you have a chance, but not a great chance.</p>

<p>In the range but not a shoo in. In fact the whole of your list is quite top heavy with the exception of Emory. You might want to expand your list to include some other matches and safeties.</p>

<p>Stanford is a match/reach for you (as it is for everyone). Your other schools look pretty good. I'd say you have great chances at Georgetown, Northwestern, JHU, and Emory definitely. The Ivies are, of course, always unpredictable. Good luck though!</p>

<p>I think you have a good shot at Stanford-if you want a numerical idea, i would say about 70%.</p>

<p>BTW, you might want to take the SAT II Math IC or IIC. It is STRONGLY recommended by Stanford.</p>

<p>paul, i thought they liked iic?</p>

<p>well yeah, but still ic is better than nothing.</p>

<p>Thank you!</p>
