Non-magnet school chances

<p>I have a question that has been bothering me for some time. I go to a public school in Washington that is neither highly competitive nor highly selective. The thing is, Washington doesn't have a competitive public school system. Basically anyone who lives in the area goes to the school. I have a 4.0 GPA and am ranked number 1 out of 380 students, but the grading standards at our school are relatively low compared to what I've read on CC. Despite the supposedly mediocre rigor at my school, I still got really good test scores:</p>

<p>SAT: 2300 (M: 800, V: 730, W: 770)
ACT: 35
AP: 5s in Chemistry, US History, Euro History, and Language</p>

<p>I take the hardest courseload my school offers, which includes the 4 APs (and a sprinkling of Honors courses) I've already taken and the 4-5 APs I will be taking next year.</p>

<p>My question is this: will going to a uncompetitive, non-magnet high school significantly affect my chances of getting into Stanford? I really want to go to Stanford and I am thinking of applying SCEA. Thanks in advance for any advice!</p>

<p>Stanford, as well as any other highly selective college, views your record in context. If you took the hardest <em>available</em> courses, it will look fine.</p>

<p>Yes I agree you are obviously smart and hard working Stanford isn't just going to ignore you because you go to a mediocre school.</p>
