ridiculously bad chances for early???

<p>I know this is long, please bear with me, and this is most appreciated… </p>

<p>i'm an asian male junior in a public school, fairly competitive #18 in nj, of about 450 in my grade... </p>

<p>my weighted gpa is a 4.5798
my unweighted gpa is a 3.59
my rank (though they don't give it anymore) is probably around the 20-25/450
I have taken 5 AP courses through this year: physics B(5), Chemistry(5), Biology, Calculus BC, Stat, and all my other courses have all been honors... through my junior year i have 137.5 credits, i'll have 180 or 190 by the time i graduate (need 120 to graduate)... senior year, i plan to take AP programming, psychology, Physics C, and latin... </p>

<p>i scored a 198 on my psats sophmore year 72, 61, 65 for math, writing, and reading respectively, another one tomorrow yay! haha... and on the last sat i took i scored a 1460, an 800 on math and a 660 on English (thank you retakes). my SAT II scores are an 800 on math IIc, a 740 on chem, and a 690 on physics. (i also plan on taking writing) </p>

<li>I took alg/II trig honors as a freshman as an independent study, and I am taking latin III as an independent study… </li>

<p>I know I can get wonderful recommendations, my teachers love me and think that i’m all hardwork and no play… haha, considering all those things… </p>

<p>i was wondering what my chances are to apply early... i think i can score maybe a 2100 on the new sats which would be like a 1400 on the old ones maybe a little better depending on my English guessing ability on the day of the test... thanks… also how do they do unweighted, do all a’s a- through a+ get a 4? My schools a little weird on that...</p>

<p>you're solid... EXCEPT FORRRRRRR the 690 physics sat II... what the shonngggg dawg? physics should be an 800</p>

<p>i'm not gonna lie, i didn't really care anymore, i found out i got a 5 in physics B so i just gave up on that... besides we only have to submit the 3 highest sat II's, and i don't even need writing cuz i have to take the new ones... so what % do u think i would have applying early?</p>

<p>Forgive me for wondering about this and some other threads ... :(</p>

<p>You ask for a specific percentage or a scale to rate your chances and you list all sorts of things, and it makes me wonder... of course, we all obsess and worry about whether we will get into a certain school or not, but understand that we're all kids too, and without being an admissions officer it's going to be quite tough to gauge your "chances" given a big stream of numbers and ECs that look like everyone else. We don't know what your interests are, your passions, what kind of a person you are, etc. that comes out in the application essays and can often mean the difference between accept and deny. :)</p>

<p>And that's my 5:00am incoherent message for today.</p>

<p>You're a junior. Save the stress for next year -_- we can't tell you anything from your PSAT scores.</p>

<p>well, i was considering graduating this year, i have all my requirements done and i can choose to walk this year, just trying to decide whether or not i should send out my apps early</p>

<p>IMHO, you're not going to get in early, just because you have to be incredibly incredibly amazing to get in as a junior at any competitive school. I would say that you should stay in high school for one more year, work on your ECs and resume, improve your grades (your unweighted GPA seems a bit low), and you'll have a solid chance next year. :)</p>
