<p>Anyway...thanks for the chance - and YES I CHANCE BACK</p>

<p>Almost looks like a safety. Your stats are ridiculous.</p>

<p>Don't interpret that as a sign that it's okay to cut your current safeties, though.</p>

<p>wow I wasn't expecting that - I always thought UVa was like an Ivy crapshoot out of state...anyway thank you very much for your input.</p>

<p>Yeah I think it is a high match... a lot harder to get into being out of state.</p>

<p>haha so I know that I said I only want to go to UVa, and that is completely true, but because I am going to apply NREA I will also get to see my admissions to the other schools listed...any thoughts on these?</p>

<p>Wash U in Stl
Rice applying to engineering
UPenn (M&T - I know I def won't get in)
Case Western (Safety)
U Rochester (Safety)</p>

<p>oh yeah - I CHANCE BACK, please post a link.</p>

<p>It would be a slight reach-not definitely in but only because you are OOS</p>

<p>bump bump - other opinions on the other schools on my list? Gracias.</p>

<p>I agree with everyone else. Looks like you have a good shot at UVA. My advice: Keep your safeties, test your luck, hope for the best.</p>

<p>Chance Me Back?
