<p>I've just handed in my college application materials to my guidance counselor and after stressing for so long over everything, I actually feel like I should have held on longer, as if the decision has been taken out of my hands and I can only sit back. Coincidentally, this is what I do have to do. I just came by this site and want to see what you all think of my chances to get into my dream school, my number 1, Vassar.</p>
<p>First, Im applying early decision
Ive visisted three times which I think when they see that I have will look good in my favor.
Ive emailed the admissions officer for my area and expressed my interest and intention of applying Early Decision.</p>
<p>My average is a 96 but I dont know my rank since my school doesnt rank.
I dont believe many people, if any, from my school have applied there in the past so I think that will work to my advantage.</p>
<p>I think my essay came out pretty good, the letters of reccomendation are good, and my extracurriculars while not extensive are good. I did a lot of community service and things like yearbook, newspaper, student council as a class rep for the past two year. I didnt do much besides volunteer work and a club here or there freshman and sophmore year. </p>
<p>My standarized test scores are what I worry will hurt me....SAT 1210</p>
<p>SAT II Writing 710
US Hist 650</p>
<p>AP Spanish 5
US Hist 4</p>
<p>Also, I know the admissions rep I emailed is going to be at a local college fair. Do you think it would be strange if I went only to say hello and meet him and again tell him how much I wish to attend and how interested I am in the school?</p>
<p>I guess I hope all of you to say my chances are good but I rather you be honest.
Thanks in advance, Nick</p>
