<p>parents divorced + troubled childhood? i dont feel this should be used to my advantage, but i suppose its worth knowing</p>

<p>Hey, lemme guess, you go to Mountain View High?</p>

<p>wow I feel inferior</p>

<p>i second that feeling, raven
im going to crawl in a hole in the wall now...</p>

<p>same here same here...
i think a lot of abc's r like that though...heck im a chinese myself, but in the real sense of the word. u'll definitely get in, though im no authority on the topic as i only haf 1510 and applying for intl finaid. sobsob...</p>

<p>hey, bubchub, congrats on your 1600; welcome to the club. if you do go to mountain view, did your dragonboat team partner with crystal springs in one of the lake merced races? just curious</p>

<p>extremely good chances!</p>

<p>Yeah, I think we're all secretly plotting to take out bubchub's application now. Although Stanford rejects 65% of 1600s, you still have an amazing chance.</p>

<p>agreed...tho remember the CC adage, "high stats are like money: with them, you can't buy everything, but without them, you can't buy anything"</p>

<p>leave bubchub alone, he's applying regular decision!</p>

<p>I went to the information session, and the lady said that they rejected only thirty percent of 1600s</p>

<p>Not sure about the 1600 thing. I went to the info too, but my memory may be failing. Probably why I didn't make a 1600 (!) Good luck, bubchub.</p>

<p>good luck, bubchub!</p>

<p>yea - howd u know? who is this?</p>

<p>a few of the dragonboat team captains are good friends of mine :-)</p>

<p>yea we partnered with crystal springs - do u go there?</p>

<p>maaybe ;-)</p>

<p>oh wow, looks awesome!</p>

<p>good luck</p>

<p>I don't think you have a chance :P,..............
why did you waste your money applying!!!!!! Only a 1600!!!!!!
you are a disgrace (in case you didn't sense the sarcasm, i am being sarcastic!!!)
Why do ppl like you even post?? You know you'll get in!!!!! but yeah, i guess i am just jealous :(</p>

<p>haha yes, even ppl like me can sense sarcasm. trust me, i dont look like...minkus from boy meets world.</p>
