<p>Chances at Harvard (EA), Yale, Brown, Columbia, Amherst, Williams, Swarthmore, Wesleyan, Vassar, Michigan?</p>

<p>Any other suggestions?</p>

<p>Ur ec's are good but the thing that will hold u back from harvard is ur sat score...get it into the low 1500's and u will have a great shot because u are a minority from a low income level.</p>

<p>The silence is deafening...</p>

<p>Northstarmom--you gave me some good advice several months ago. What do you think now about my chances?</p>

<p>Will someone let me know what a good post is, so that people will be attracted to respond to mine? I've never had much luck with that...</p>
