<p>College list to chance:
UNC-Chapel Hill*

Pomona College

<p>Extra information:
White male from suburbs of Los Angeles
Competitive public school (in top 105 in the nation by Newsweek)
Essays will be great to stellar (I'm a good writer)
Teacher recommendations should be great (most of my teachers like me a lot)
Counselor recommendation should be excellent

<p>Since my parents won't pay for private school, I'm looking for merit aid at the institutions with an asterisk next to them (so chance me for that too?). I'll chance back. :)
This is likely my final list and resume.</p>

<p>35 people, no replies. :(
Also, I participated this summer in a BYU Independent Study course Intro to Anthropology, if that makes a difference.</p>

<p>UCLA: Match
UCB: Low reach
UNC-Chapel Hill: Match
Claremont McKenna: In
Pomona College: In
USC: Match
Stanford: Reach
Princeton: Reach
Tulane: In
Rice: Low reach
UMiami: In
Emory: Low reach</p>

<p>Match or In for your first 6 listed. Stanford and Princeton, I'd say you have a better shot than the average applicant. Rest are ins and Rice and Emory I'd consider matches for you.</p>

<p>Bump. ;p 10chars</p>

<p>UCLA- Match
UCB- Not Sure
UNC- Match
Claremont McKenna- In
Pomona- In
USC- Match
Stanford- Reach
Princeton- Reach
Tulane- Not Sure
Rice- Match
UMiami- In
WUSTL- Not sure
Emory- Low Reach</p>

<p>Chance</a> me back?</p>

<p>UCLA: match
UCB: match
UNC-Chapel Hill<em>: match
Claremont McKenna</em>: don't know enough so can't give honest advice
Pomona College: match
USC<em>: match
Stanford: high reach
Princeton: high reach
Tulane</em><em>" match
Rice</em>: low reach
UMiami*<em>: match
WUSTL</em>:match/low reach
Emory*: ditto claremont</p>

<p>You'll get into most schools with your stats, but for top private schools you'll need some stronger ECs. Either way, you've gathered up an impressive application. </p>

<p>Chance me back?
<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>bump 10cars
I'm also looking if anyone knows what are my probable merit options at CMC, USC, Tulane, Rice, UMiami, WUSTL, and Emory.</p>

<p>I think you have a good chance at all those schools, as always, the ivies are reaches but with a good essay anything is possible. Also, AP test results can make a big difference, especially in the core subjects. Overall i think you have a good chance at getting in any of those colleges.</p>

<p>College list to chance:
UNC-Chapel Hill<em>-most likely in (i've seen cases where people with amazing stats got rejected)
Claremont McKenna</em>-in
Pomona College-not familiar with pomona too much so i cant say
Princeton-reach (but you've got a great chance)
Tulane</em><em>-i'd say in
Rice</em>-also in (Low reach)

<p>chance me back: Chance me? ED Cornell</p>

<p>Anyone here got the Trustee Scholarship from USC, a full-tuition scholarship OOS from UNC-Chapel Hill, full-tuition from Tulane, 10,000+ from Claremont, or the Singer scholarship from UMiami?
I would really appreciate it. xP</p>

<p>good test scores +passionate extra curriculars. However, contradictory to what somone said, AP scores do not make much of a difference. If I'm not mistaken, they are not even seen until you enroll in that school. You still ahve a great chance at all of those schools.</p>

<p>Chance me; <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Also, I forgot to put these in:
I know four languages: English, Spanish, French, and Hebrew.
To learn Hebrew, I participated in Hebrew High School from 8th to 11th grade.</p>

<p>My dad's a doctor, and I'm not sure it matters, but he did residency at UCLA and a fellowship at USC.</p>

<p>Work Experience:
I hopefully will land a tutoring position in September that would entail about 1 hour daily (paid).</p>

<p>This was in middle school, but I'm part of the Johns Hopkins CTY programme (I received awards for my score in both 5th and 7th [I took the SAT])
-participated in Model UN program</p>

I am certified in HAM radio-I became so at 9
I am USCF ranked in chess (I believe still)</p>

<p>I'm not sure how much of the added information is applicable except the work experience. I think my knowledge of languages should help with my "focus"-my ECs are rather humanities oriented, which I intend to go in.</p>

<p>UCLA: Match
UCB: Low reach
UNC-Chapel Hill: Match
Claremont McKenna: In
Pomona College: In
USC: Match
Stanford: Reach
Princeton: Reach
Tulane: In
Rice: Low reach
UMiami: In
Emory: Low reach</p>

<p>Chance back: <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Your stats are pretty awesome. I think you have a great chance of getting in to almost all the schools on your list; the ivy league schools are a crapshoot for pretty much anyone.</p>

<p>impressive GPA with that many APs, great ecs, great SAT score. What do you want to major in though? Some departments are competitive some are easy.</p>

<p>I don't think I should have much of an issue getting into the college by merit of my department; I'm looking at History, English, or Philosophy as my major (I want to go into law).</p>

<p>Great App, great scores (except if sent, I guarantee that Math II will kill you!)</p>

<p>UCLA - I think in (match)
UCB - Match
UNC-Chapel Hill* - Match
Claremont McKenna* - Not sure, but probably match, it's tough with smaller schools.
Pomona College - Same as before
USC* - In, aid im not sure.
Stanford - Reach like anyone to be honest, if you are more specialized it would bump your chances.
Princeton - Same as Stanford
Tulane** - Probably would get a lot of aid - in.
Rice* - Match, Low reach.
UMiami** - Same as tulane.
WUSTL* - No clue.
Emory* - Same as rice.</p>

<p>UCLA: Match
UCB: Low reach
UNC-Chapel Hill: Match
Claremont McKenna: In
Pomona College: In
USC: Match
Stanford: Reach
Princeton: Reach
Tulane: In
Rice: Low reach
UMiami: In
Emory: Low reach</p>

<p>UCLA - safety
UCB - match
UNC-Chapel Hill* - low match
Claremont McKenna* - mid-high match
Pomona College - same as above
USC* - safety
Stanford - mid-high reach
Princeton - mid-high reach
Tulane** - safety
Rice* - match
WUSTL* - don't know this school! sry!
Emory* - high-safety</p>

<p>Please chance back!
