<p>thanks for your help!!!!!!!!!!</p>

<p>oh and I don't want to do sports in college so that won't help me get in anywhere</p>

<p>How about:</p>

Boston U...Match
John's Hopkins...Match/Reach
Wake Forest...Match</p>

<p>thanks a lot blaineko</p>

<p>but does anyone think I have a shot at tufts, boston college, nyu?</p>

<p>Sure, you have a chance to be admitted to all three. However, I would put them in the category of realistic reaches, given your SAT and gpa.</p>

<p>bumppp bump bump</p>

<p>icemaker- so u dont think theyre matches?</p>

<p>what should be my match schools then?</p>

<p>Pepgirly --</p>

<p>Do you know your class rank? Top 5%, top 10%, top 20%? That will give me a better idea to assess matches.</p>

<p>I read your original post again and I am going to modify my original assessment. I did not originally realize that your gpa is based upon only your first two years of high school. If I assume that your gpa will be closer to 3.8 and that your class rank is in the top 10%, then I would assess Tufts, BC and NYU closer to matches than reaches. If your gpa stays in the 3.6 range and your class rank hovers around top 20%, then I would think that these 3 schools would be closer to "reachy matches" or "matchey reaches" (I tend to make up words in theses posts).</p>

<p>If you are looking for other matches (I assume that you are limiting your search to universities in urban settings), off the top of my head I think that should look at Vanderbilt, Washington University, Case Western, George Washington University (probably more of a safety), Georgetown (probably closer to a reach) and the University of Rochester. </p>

<p>I hope this is helpful.</p>

<p>Wash U and G'town may be more of a reach...quite competitive.</p>

<p>thanks a lot for your help
my brother is an alum so maybe I have a shot at gtown, but my first choice is tufts. </p>

<p>our school unfortunately doesn't rank, but I would get I'm in the top 10%.</p>

<p>If Tufts is your dream school, then I think that you have a really good shot. Oldman is probably correct about G'town and Wash U. It seems to me that admissions to Wash U, in particular, has gotten increasingly competitive in the last 5 years. </p>

<p>Good luck.</p>
