Please let me know!

<p>I’m currently a senior at a public high school in New York and I’m thinking about applying ED to Brandeis University. Here is a list of my 11th and 12th grade classes and the grades, my SAT and ACT scores, my extra curricular activities and just some other information. Please please please let me know if I have a shot of getting in to Brandeis before I apply ED!!! Thanks so much in advance and I’m sorry about all the reading but I’ve just entered the “What if I don’t get into any of the schools I want to go to?!?!” phase and I just want to make sure I put all the possible information I could here :stuck_out_tongue: </p>

<p>I will graduate High School with my regular High School Diploma, an Advanced Regents Diploma and IB Certificates for Math Studies, Physics, Environmental Sciences and Systems and English</p>

<p>One last thing I want to point out is that I was in the full International Baccalaureate Diploma program (IBO) during my Junior Year but decided not to continue with it and some of the Higher Level classes for my Senior Year because I felt as if reaching for the IB Diploma was holding me back from classes that I really wanted to take (like AP Euro) and pulling my attention and focus to one class in particular to the point where my grades were affected in my other classes. The class that demanded all of my focus was my IB Visual Arts class and because I do not plan to major in art, the fact that a class that contained a hobby of mine was taking my attention away from my academic classes did not please me.</p>

<p>I think you are a very competitive candidate, but ED will really help a great deal and can make the difference between getting accepted or not.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>
