<p>Thx, Is Duke that much of a reach?</p>

<p>Other place I was looking at:


<p>What's your rank?</p>

<p>The sailing just might be a bit of a hook-- did you receive any awards?</p>

<p>More questions:

<p>Your II scores are good, as is your I. I don't know much, though...</p>

<p>Thx for reply.
Well, My school dosent rank, but around 10%, but it is one of the top 5 ranked public schools in NJ.</p>

<p>Well, I've won many local events, and placed respectivly State and Nation Wide.
~14 at NJ States
~50 North Americans</p>

<p>Asian/American Male</p>

<p>I applied Trinity, Would Pratt of been harder/easer?</p>

<p>Well, I think, because of your high Math scores, Pratt may be a good option for you..</p>

<p>What's your prospective major?</p>

<p>I think you have a really good shot. The sailing is extremely unique.</p>

<p>Yea, I was thinking of Pratt,
Major in Bio, or Biomed Eng
Thinking premed.</p>

<p>Yea, sailing seemed to be my strong point, Duke has a good sailing club too.</p>

<p>actually Trinity would be good too b/c you can stand out that way. Everyone applying to pratt has really high math/sciences scores</p>

<p>you definately have a good chance, good luck!</p>

<p>Thx, anyone know if my RD schools would be reaches or Matches too?</p>

<p>Well, I'll put it in relation to Duke:
Cornell - slightly easier
Purdue - easier
UVA - almost as hard if you're out of state (which I think you are)
UPenn - a tad harder</p>

<p>I would say all are reaches except for Purdue, which is more of a match.</p>
