<p>Thank you for reading. I would appreciate to read any feedback you may have!</p>

<p>Rank is top 5% out of 600 kids.</p>

<p>bumpppppppp</p>

<p>Would you like to explain the abnormal part? Maybe it's just me but I'm not seeing it</p>

<p>I don't see anything abnormal.
You have a good shot at all schools, but a good shot is far from guaranteed acceptance.</p>

<p>Also, it's logical that you have a better shot at Columbia ED than Yale EA. Some say Yale EA is the most competitive pool out there since schools like Harvard and Princeton don't have early processes. Yale also chooses to defer the vast majority of their applicants to RD, so unless you're an extremely, extremely outstanding candidate, chances are you'll have to wait until RD. You're a strong candidate, but I don't think you're strong enough to be accepted EA. Columbia ED is certainly not a walk in the park either, but logically your shot is better there.</p>

<p>Hello Yelopen, what is your estimated percentage for Columbia if I do ED?</p>

<p>Make sure to improve your SAT score. 2300 + then your chances will be better.</p>
