<p>[/ul]General Comments:
I have a tough decision to make but I'm so glad I get to make it. :)</p>

<p>Accepted ...real excited...</p>

<p>floridadad55: I'm not sure whether I'm going to stick on the waitlist. Everyone at school expected me to get into JHU, waitlisted/accepted at Penn(got waitlisted) and I got rejected at Harvard which is to be expected.</p>

<p>how does anyone expect to get a school with less than a 20% acceptance rate? You look like the average applicant with SAT II's that are below average.</p>

<p>WAITLISTED</p>

<p>GPA 4.3 in mostly honors and AP classes
SAT 2130 (one sitting)
Rank Top 5% at Top 50 NOVA H.S.
Solid EC and essays
Great rec's
AP 5's Calculus B/C, US History, Euro History, and Psychology
AP 4 -- English Composition
This year taking AP French 6, AP Government, AP Physics C (M, E&M), and multi-variable calculus</p>

<p>Waitlisted at all three of my reaches so far--JHU, Chicago, and Duke. Have yet to hear from Vanderbilt even though they mailed things out last Friday. Will call admissions tomorrow and keep my fingers crossed. </p>

<p>Accepted at: Virginia, William & Mary, Wake Forest, Ohio State, and Va. Tech. </p>

<p>Took my name off JHU wait list to open up a spot for someone else. Same with Chicago. Am going to stay on Duke wait list, although I know this is probably the longest shot of the three. </p>

<p>Message to my twin siblings who are now juniors: Apply ED to the one reach you really want to attend; also take SAT more than once (lol).</p>
