</p>

<p>Where are you applying to school? Haha</p>

<p>I'd say everything but Brown, UChicago and USC looks very very very good. You still have decent shots at them, too. Your GPA is NOT low and you SAT scores should more than make up for it.
<a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1268192-another-what-my-chances-post.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1268192-another-what-my-chances-post.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Chicago, Brown: Reach
Swarthmore: Reach because unpredictable</p>

<p>You have decent/good/great chances at other colleges.</p>

<p>Good luck to you!</p>

<p>I still don't understand why people with your grades and scores would make a chance me thread. I think you already know more or less which schools will be more difficult and so forth. I, on the other hand am a more unpredictable applicant since I am an international student and applying for fin aid. Some things are to my benefit while others could crush my acceptance to all my schools. To sum up, you will do great!</p>

<p>Chance me? <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1268956-chance-international.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1268956-chance-international.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>^ If you are that unpredictable, I don't think there's much I can do to chance you. :)</p>

<p>For Purdue hahahha now chance me "chaosakita"! hahaha</p>

<p>University of Texas at Austin too</p>

<p>I think you have a good chance at Purdue. I think UT is a reach for you, given your test scores.</p>

<p>Yeah, the same that i was thinking, thank you!</p>

<p>You're welcome. </p>

<p>Bump.</p>

<p>You will probably only be rejected by Brown, Rice, and Chicago. You may even get into Rice and Chicago though.
Chance back? <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1261942-chance-first-time-poster-i-know-youre-reading.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1261942-chance-first-time-poster-i-know-youre-reading.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>First off, congratulations on the fantastic stats! They are surely something to be proud of. ECs look typical but strong, and GPA is decent. I think you are pretty much in at most of your schools, and only Brown and UChicago are unpredictable. Especially for those two schools in particular, your essays are especially important.
By the way, thanks for the chance on my thread! :)</p>
