<p>Bump…ill chance back!</p>

<p>I think your courseload in previous years might hurt you here.
However, everything else makes up for it hopefully. USC looks very attainable looking at a high match/match here. </p>

<p>I’d say Lehigh would be closer to a low match
Vanderbilt you’re looking at a low reach/high match at best.
Northwestern is your low to middle reach</p>

<p>chance me back bud!

<p>Wow, You should get in Vanderbilt if you do ED. I’m a freshman at Vanderbilt (got in ED2 to the c/o 2016). I’m Asian and I only had 1450, so you probably would get in.</p>

<p>Agreed, you should definitely do ED at one of those schools.</p>

<p>I already did ED to Cornell but didn’t get in. What do you guys think about RD? I know it gets much more competitive.</p>

<p>I know Vanderbilt and Lehigh offer ED II. If I were you, I would definitely apply early to one of those schools. I’d probably go with Vanderbilt.</p>

<p>Say I already applied RD to these schools. I don’t have a distinct first choice among them all, so id like to hear from each.</p>

<p>Your best bet is to do your own research and make a decision from there. ED II is the only real advice I can give.</p>

<p>Thanks, Edward! Bump</p>

<p>Wrapping up my supplements–bump!</p>

<p>Bump! I’m getting nervous about USC and Lehigh. Can I get in? I’ll chance back.</p>

<p>Lehigh and USC will probably accept you</p>

<p>NW & Vanderbilt: Match/High Match</p>

<p>Thanks for responding! Happy holidays, everybody!</p>

<p>Vanderbilt - Match(apply ED if you want definite acceptance)
Northwestern - Match(apply ED if you want definite acceptance)
Lehigh - safety
USC - low match</p>

<p>I chanced you back, jisaacs2215</p>

<p>I think you have a chance for all of those schools and choose what school you want to go to and do the ED if you want the acceptance chance higher! But I think you can get into any school you want on that list so take it regular decision and apply to all of them! Good luck! </p>
