<p>Like 300 CS hours, at least 450 by application time.</p>

<p>My dream school is Cambridge, so that's what my application fits.</p>

University Of Chicago
University Of Toronto
<em>New Schools</em>
Princeton(the worst thing they can say is "NO")</p>

St. Andrew's
Imperial College London</p>

<p>I know nothing about the admission process in the UK schools.</p>

<p>That being said, all the other American colleges seem to be in your reach. NYU, UPenn, UChicago, aned UToronto you are soldily in.</p>

<p>As for Dartmouth and Princeton, you have a a great shot to make it into at least one.</p>

<p>I'd advise you even to apply to Harvard, Yale, and Columbia; just knock out all the Ivies...</p>

<p>Thanks, I wasn't gonna try Harvard or Yale because of my GPA.</p>

<p>i definitely think that it's worth a try</p>
