<p>Other colleges I'm interested at:
UT at Austin/Honors Program (Match/Reach?)
Baylor U in Waco, TX (Safety?)
NYU (Reach/Match?)
Cornell ED (Huge reach?)
Texas A&M (Safety?)</p>

<p>I'd very much appreciate any suggestions regarding my list
I think I need some more safety/match schools.. I can't think of any.</p>

<p>Thanks in advance.</p>

<p>I don't know for sure.. but I think if you applied ED to Emory you'd have a pretty good chance, since ED at Emory supposedly gives you a big boost in admissions.</p>

<p>bumpie bump</p>

<p>I'd say you are in ED</p>

<p>My 2 cents:</p>

<p>In at Emory U, if you ED.</p>

<p>Thanks, I'm sorry but could you guys give me estimated percentages of my RD admittance?</p>

<p>nobody here knows.. it wont help you. I think that if its your first choice, then go for ED, if you can afford to not get accepted (though you stand a good chance) then go RD.</p>

<p>Ah, all right.. I'll have to give this my last thought.</p>
