<p>I'd say that you have a great chance. Good luck!</p>

<p>I'm with norcal, esp. if you go ED. What's the high school?</p>


<p>yea, simsbury is a great school, borderline prep but still public. i think its ranked in the top ten high schools (or was it the middle or elementary school). anyways, i think piman has a great chance of getting in. piman might want to apply ED there</p>
