670V 730M = 1400

<p>SAT II:

<p>b u m p</p>

<p>Someone please respond!</p>

<p>well your sat is a little on the low side, but i'm not really too sure of your chances there</p>

<p>bump guys</p>

<p>I'd say UMCP and UMICH are pretty good match. I would say though tha you better get in your UMICH app fast as they are rolling admissions.</p>

<p>yo... u from tenafly? cuz u guys kicked our asses in the chem olympiad</p>

<p>Im in the same boat as u, except im an international. same ethnicity tho, and SAT I of 1350. Id say for a U.S resident, ur SAT is on the lower side, but might be goo enough for CMU. Cornell is a definite possibility, but a reach nonetheless. Check out my thread "Chance at Ivies" if u want to compare stats and draw some conclusions about ur chances from there.</p>

<p>good luck!</p>

<p>Comparing your statistics to those of students who have applied to similiar universities from my PA high school over the past few years, i'd say you have a very good chance Carnegie Mellon and Cornell. Lehigh should be a lock, and Michigan is a match, though it could be easier / more difficult depending on whether you work the rolling admissions to your advantage. Penn is a reach, but you are a strong applicant, and have a chance.</p>
