<p>I'm trying to decide where to apply early too.
i'm hopelessly in love with any of the 3. i'm in the fortunate position of even loving my safety school haha
i'm not really asking which of the 3 you prefer, (though that's appreciated in helping me with my decision) but rather, which you think I have the best shot of getting into based on the types of students they go for etc.
additional factors-- georgetown typically only takes one from my school.
brown and uchicago each took one last year but that was unusual.
a guy at my school has basically been accepted for athletics to brown.
i am aware that brown is binding (i.e. ED not EA)-- i'm more than willing to make that commitment, so the question, I guess, is what is the advantage tradeoff to applying ED, especially considering I already know someone from my school who will be taken ED?
and how much do uchicago and georgetown value early applicants?
finally- if theres any school you think i should be considering applying to early instead?</p>
<p>I'm looking to major in either (potential double major) English or International Relations- for georgetown it would def be IR.</p>
<p>These are my stats:
verbal and writing: 800
sat2s: lit:800, ushistory:730-- i'm doing another set of 3 in october, but I expect they'll be all above 700.
Class Rank: 38 out of 1000 at a competitive public high school in the south.</p>
<p>ECs: I'm a varsity debater and go to upwards of 12-15 tournaments a year/huge time commitment equivalent or superior to varsity sports. I got 2nd at state junior year, semifinaled at nationals, president senior year. etc (this is my biggest EC)
