<p>Phew!!! Thanks for reading all of this, and I certainly don't blame you for skimming! haha. Obviously all the colleges I listed are difficult to get into, so does anyone have any idea on some matches/safties that would be a good fit? I always seem to have trouble finding those. Thanks again, and I will GLADLY CHANCE BACK if you want me too.</p>

<p>Bump! Wow, 45 views and zero comments: I can’t tell if that’s good or bad…</p>

<p>Bump again</p>

<p>I think you can predict yourself your chances at these schools.</p>

<p>The fact you have a unique and uncommon EC (jumprope? for real?) makes you a very interesting and desirable applicant. Ditto for being from Idaho.</p>

<p>The only thing not in your favor is that you’re a white male. It’s a gamble for all of these schools, but do your best in your applications, get great rec letters and make sure you can afford these schools and you should be OK!</p>

<p>Make sure you have a safety or two!</p>

<p>^Oh yeah, because white males have it so hard -rolls eyes-</p>

<p>I think you’ve posted a chance thread before…not sure. But you’re national level EC is incredibly unique and you have a “shoe-in” at most if not all 2nd tier schools and a good shot at Ivy’s too!</p>

<p>Chance back please?
<a href=“[/url]”>;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

<p>Incredible EC, and you are from Idaho (quite frankly, not too many strong applicants from Idaho). If you really want Stanford, go for it EA and I think you’ll get it.</p>

<p>Chance back?</p>



<p>There are too many white males applying for spots at the top 20 schools – so, yes, bring a white male (and probably not a low income white male) does put you at a disadvantage!</p>

<p>^ haha I would agree. So many white males apply. I wish I was a native american female! But obviously that’s not going to happen.</p>
