<p>Most of my time has been dedicated to athletics and academics; subsequently, I have a fair amount of awards, and I would love to TRY (keyword: try) to walk-on the basketball team at Stanford.</p>

<p>What do you think my chances are? Thank you very much for your time, and I truly appreciate your help!</p>


<p>hmmm i think you do have a chance, especially if you're awesome in basketball. i know for a fact that Stanford values athletics a lot more than other selective schools, and if you're good enough to be on the team, then you have great chances of acceptance.</p>

<p>Thanks paulhomework! Anyone else??? Thanks in advance for your opinions.</p>

<p>Is English not your native language? Is that why you have such a gap brw math and verbal SATs?</p>

<p>Ha ha!!! I wish! No, I just don't have a very strong vocabulary honestly. I mean, I can understand what I read, and I tend to have a good grasp on grammar, which is why my reading and english scores on the ACT are much better than my verbal on the SAT, but I just struggle with does dang analogies and sentence completion type stuff. Thanks for your inquiry. Anyone/anything else??? Thanks again.</p>

<p>I wish i had stats like yours :(. Did u send in your application already?</p>

<p>No, not yet (applying regular decision). Thanks for everyone's comments once again. Anyone/anything else???</p>

<p><strong>bump</strong>, anyone else???</p>

<p>Your EC's and academics both look pretty strong. Maybe get your SAT score up and that will improve your chances. Good luck!</p>

<p>Thanks a lot!!! Does anyone else have any comments on my chances or anything else to mention. Thanks again for your time and good luck to everyone!</p>

<p>Got my Oct. ACT score back and received a 32. Considering the fact that I will probably be trying to walk-on the basketball team, it probably will have no effect on my admissions. Do you think I have a chance regular decision, or should I consider applying elsewhere. Thanks a lot and good luck to all!</p>

<p>go regular, you can do it. your stats look great, and your SAT is your only weak point, and that is what they give the most slack in.</p>

<p>Thanks a lot. Your comments gave me more confidence.</p>

<p>you dont need to worry about being out of state... stanford isnt a state school.</p>
