<p>If you could give me chances on any of these schools, I would GREATLY appreciate it! I have my Georgetown interview today, have finished my Harvard and U-San Diego applications and the others are still withstanding because I need to write supplement essays. Thank you!</p>

<p>For HPYS and UPenn, you really need to get your SATs up to be a "competitive applicant." But I think your GPA and ECs are great! You will get into a great school! Good luck!</p>

<p>HYPS are huge reaches for you; chances improve a bit if you can get SATs to 2200+, though even then they are reaches as you have average ECs (but not bad). Also, that 630 on US History is a red flag; not a significant chance you get into any. Upenn is a high reach as well.</p>

<p>In at USD and Arizona, high match at NYU, low reach at Georgetown. You should consider applying to more schools in NYU/Georgetown's range.</p>

<p>Best of luck!</p>

<p>Might look at Holy Cross-very good school 1 hour from Boston. HC is a smaller version of Georgetown but easier to get into. Holy Cross(don't need to be religious) has a great business alumni network and its alums rate in the top 15 of all schools in Payscale salary study.</p>

<p>Definitely low chances for schools of Stanford's caliber, however you may have a better chance at some top publics and lower tier private like Emory/Tufts/Brandeis.</p>

<p>Georgetown - Reach
UPenn - High Reach
Harvard - High Reach
Yale - High Reach
Stanford - High Reach
USD - IN
Arizona - IN
NYU - Target
Princeton - High Reach</p>

<p>Relatively low GPA + SAT make HYPS very high reaches. Penn is a reach as well.</p>
