<p>Thank you!</p>

<p>all the objective factors looks great, so it's now up to the essays and how well the admission officers deem you a necessary asset to their campus. try to present your activities in such a way that you show a thread, a connection between them; why is it that you do what you do, what is it that makes you excited, etc. the best of luck!</p>

<p>I'm such a fail Indian lol</p>

<p>lol howw?
anyone else, help me?</p>

<p>Idk I feel like all Indians are like valedictorian with almost perfect sat score, great ec lol</p>

<p>HYP is a crapshoot. Either you get in or you dont and only reason you get in may be because of the indian music. </p>

<p>What are your other choices?</p>

<p>I think your passion for music will help a lot and scores are obviously great as is </p>

<p>Who have you performed with, I'm Indian by the way =]</p>

<p>Chance back?</p>

<p>Good chance at all, but like everyone says, it is a crapshoot.</p>

<p>Still, your stats are really solid, so I think with good essays you will <em>likely</em> get in.</p>

<p>I'm looking at Harvard as the absolute dream school- I am applying to other Ivies and Stanford but thinking of Northwestern, Emory, Carnegie Mellon, etc.
I don't want to reveal my identity by saying who I performed with because you could find pages of it if you Googled me lol, but Indian music is definitely a HUGE part of my life and I'll be using that largely for my essays.
Thank you everyone! Does anyone else have suggestions?</p>

<p>definitely in at Emory, Northwestern, CMU if not computer science.</p>

<p>Harvard was the dream school for 33,000 who did nt get in this year and probably 36,000 who wont get in 2012. So dont get too attached.</p>

<p>hmmm Columbia, UPenn maybe?</p>

<p>going to have to bump this sighhh...</p>
