I'm a first-time poster, long-time lurker :D
and I need help with my chances.</p>
<p>Majoring Undeclared, but a good study-abroad program is a plus.</p>
3.3 UW ( with one C junior year. yikes )
3.6 - 3.8 W ( 10th,11th grades )
1450 SAT ( 750 v, 700 m)
730 SATII average ( w/ math IIc and everything 700+ )
Commended National Merit student</p>
<p>I've always taken the hardest courses that I could.
-4 APs this semester</p>
<p>I have completely average EC's-- can't lie there-- but I do have one varsity sport ( but no recruitment chances ).</p>
<p>I hope that my essays will be good, or at least above average.</p>
<p>According to Princeton Review's Couselor-matic( don't trust it, I know ), my matches are state-school + levels, but my reaches are as selective as Pomona and Stanford. So you can see where I'm having trouble, right? heh</p>
<p>Here's my list so far:
the UC's, not UCM or UCR (instate) - started app
USC - started app
a Claremont school, but which?
an out-of-state school, but I'm not sure which yet</p>
<p>Any other suggestions? i want to narrow my list to about 10-ish schools.
Do I even have a chance at really a selective school? I'm also worried that I don't have enough safeties. Excuse me if I'm rambling. hee
I wouldn't mind out of state, but I prefer California weather..haha. Feel free to be completely honest. </p>
<p>and Thanks a ton!</p>
