<p>Cumulative GPA: 3.79uw, 4.55w. 12 APs total.</p>

<p>SAT I: 2340, 750CR/800M/790W. No SAT IIs yet, will probably take Biology, Chemistry, Math IIC, whatever else is necessary.</p>


<p>Math Honor Society: 10-12.
Academic teams: Math, Science, Spelling. Highest scores in school for most of them.
Habitat for Humanity: 10-12.
Volunteering at church's homeless shelter: Informal management position (no one has formal titles besides the owner but there are those who labor and those who manage) a few hundred hours by senior year, about 80 so far.
Hospital Volunteering: Going to start, hope to do a lot.
Talent show participation: Won sophomore year at first talent show school had.
Math Tutoring: 5 hours per week since sophomore year.

<p>Approximate total community service time: + or - 200 hours. Estimated by senior year 500+.</p>

<p>My ECs are crap because my school had no clubs until I was a sophomore so 10-12=maximum dedication.</p>

<p>Intended major: Psychology or Biology major, music minor. Double major would be nice if anyone knows where I could do that.</p>

<p>Recs: All the faculty loves me and I'm well known, so I have loads of resources for recommendations.</p>

<p>Schools (not a very narrowed list yet):</p>

<p>Harvard EA
Dartmouth ED
Amherst (I've been thinking about LACs)
Oberlin (Double major program, music conversatory and college.)
Austin College (automatic medical school acceptance program with Texas Tech)</p>

<p>Tell me reach/match/safety and also where I could get some money. A percentage estimate would be nice as I'm mathematically inclined.</p>

<p>Need to work on the ECs more.</p>

<p>Yeah that definitely is my weak point. You did see the leadership position crammed in there right?</p>

<p>Who wants to give me my chances?</p>

<p>Grades/SAT wise you're fine.</p>

<p>How about those specific colleges?</p>

<p>what were your scores from the AP tests</p>

<p>I'm a junior so really the only AP test I've taken is psychology because I took the class a year earlier than most people are allowed to. Got a 4 on that. Didn't study at all, but that gets me college credit.</p>

<p>I thought Harvard was SCEA..</p>

<p>Oops, I guess I meant to type that. Nonetheless, same meaning pretty much.</p>

<p>Come on guys, evaluate my chances at the colleges I listed!</p>

<p>I don't need this other stuff. I mean, of course stats evaluation is okay to some degree.</p>

<p>If you're going to say I can't go to Harvard in my dreams even, tell me why ya know.</p>

<p>Great SAT, grades are good (not excellent, a few Bs), BUT ECs are not so hot. If you don't have any "hook" -- a reason why HArvard should pick you, I don't see you getting in. You're only a Junior though, plenty of time to do somehting proactive!!!</p>

<p>What about the other ones?</p>

<p>I would say right now all those schools with the exception of Tulane and Austin college are reaches. Top UCs are reaches unless you're in-state, in which case Berkeley and LA are slight-reach/match. </p>

<p>If you got involved in some more ECs, and had some officer positions this year and next, I would say you'd be highly competitive at any school in your list.</p>

<p>Let's assume I'm a resident because I can easily achieve that.</p>


<p>Assuming you are a California resident,
UCSD: Safety
UCSC/UCR/UCM: Super Safety</p>

<p>Anybody else?</p>

<p>Are there any other opinions on my chances at any of those colleges that you are familiar with?</p>

<p>"Let's assume I'm a resident because I can easily achieve that."</p>

<p>What does that mean?</p>

<p>Very good chance at every UC and Tulane. I don't like giving ivy preditions since they're SO hard to predict. 10% of VERY smart people get accepted to schools like Yale and Harvard.</p>


<p>What I meant was, I have family in California and my family owns several houses there so I can move there for the entirity of senior year and gain residency that way if necessary.</p>

<p>The UCs are kind of at the bottom of my list though, so if residency isn't going to happen that's okay.</p>

<p>as i said in my thread, i envy ur standardized test scores, and i forgot to mention u take a lot of aps. i lack those and i think those are more important.........</p>
