Recently I’ve been becoming more and more disheartened at my chances of being accepted into some of the schools on my list. I’d really appreciate it if someone could let me know if I’d at least have a chance of getting into the schools I’m applying to for class of 2025.
I have a couple Ivy’s, and the other out-of-state schools have about a 20-25% acceptance rate.
I know my hardest competition may be within my school, but that seems more scary to me than if not. My school performs very well, and I don’t know if I compare well to a lot of my peers.
Applying as a humanities major. (Most of my school is STEM heavy if that makes a difference)
