<p>Poli Sci/International Relations major... any feedback would be sincerely apprecaited!</p>

<p>bump, please?</p>

<p>I hate to do this, but I'd really appreciate some feedback.</p>

<p>You really need to post these in the chances forum and not all over on a bunch of different boards. That's what the chances forum is for.</p>

<p>what Lindsey said.</p>

<p>i think you have a decent chance, but you really need to realize that college admissions (especially to Yale) is something of a crapshoot, and that we can't calculate percentages for you or give you advice on how to sell yourself. you've come this far, you've developed various interests; now just fill out the application and cross your fingers. </p>

<p>oh, and please don't post this here.</p>

<p>Hey bananarama--</p>

<p>honestly, I never know what to say to the people who post asking about chances...but I am always, always impressed by the diverse group of talented people who post all over CC.</p>

<p>that being said, I think with your list you have a pretty good chance at any competitive college! although I am really not sure, I did hear it is possible that Yale likes students interested in the political field if that helps/reassures you any??</p>

<p>but anyways good luck!!! :)</p>

<p>ps-- I had a couple friends who were pages and they absolutely loved it!! and like besides the amazing experience it is, they also made a whole ton of new friends :)</p>
