Please, what are my chances?

Female, Caucasian
Graduating HS in 2011
I go to a moderately unknown, crappy public hs</p>

<p>Other crap:

A class at my local college in Anatomy and Physiology (got an A)
I am planning on majoring in a math or chemistry field
Volunteer at my local courthouse for Youth Court
Started an acolyte training programme at my church
Went to NOLA by fundraising and cleaned up after Katrina

I completely restructured my school's math programme by forcing them to allow sophmores to take AP Statistics and I skipped two grades of math.
My grandfather went to Cornell, a cousin to Yale, and my uncle went to Brown.
I have taken every AP/ honors course that I could fit in my schedule
National Honor Society
National Merit Commended</p>

<p>I'm not the perfect student. I don't get 100's or 800's on everything. I haven't discovered the cure for cancer nor have I built an orphanage in Africa but I do try hard and have a genuine passion for learning and helping others. Please be brutally honest in chancing me!</p>

<p>what schools?</p>

<p>Oops sorry. I left this off the top.</p>

<p>So... Here we go
Harvard
Yale
Johns Hopkins
RIT
Brown
UPenn
RPI
Dartmouth
Binghamton University
MIT</p>

<p>You have good test scores, but your EC's are shaky for the top tier school.</p>

<p>I'd say the best chances out of those are Binghampton, RIT, RPI, Brown, Dartmouth, Johns Hopkins.</p>

<p>MIT, Penn, Harvard, Yale are reaches.</p>

<p>Best of luck.</p>

<p>I personally think you have too many unknowns and not enough good fits.</p>

<p>Don't count on acceptances from Harvard, Yale, Johns Hopkins, Brown, UPenn, Dartmouth or MIT</p>

<p>Do you have any ideas for good fits? I feel like there aren't many schools between Ivy Leagues and like state schools.</p>

<p>I'm not so sure for your intended major(s). Try the College Search forum and you'll get better help than I can give you. Just copy your OP here and say you're looking for some ideas for match schools.</p>

<p>Not really sure that your cousin going to Yale is going to help you out. But I do think you have a good shot at the ivies if you write good essays and really show that you are passionate about a specific topic.</p>

<p>are you considering any UCs? Berkeley and LA seem like good targets for you.</p>

<p>I am definitely geared towards math and science but I am open to a liberal arts college so I can explore other topics outside of my field more. I am from New York so I prefer to stay in the East. The UC's are just too far.</p>

<p>There are a thousand schools between the ivies and the average state school.</p>

<p>Unless you love Bing, RPI and RIT, I would add some to your list. Assuming you're from the NYC area, the competition at ivies will be brutal. For a better shot at top schools raise your scores.</p>
