<p>heh, bump?</p>

<p>anyone have any ideas?</p>

<p>I'm jealous.</p>

<p>Personally, I don't see how anyone could reject you... unless you write your essay about how you hate people or something.</p>

<p>Where do you live btw?</p>

<p>jealous?
I was jealous of you :)... state championships galore + great scores + EC's
I live in Illinois, btw</p>

<p>Thanks for commenting!</p>

<p>Anyone else have any ideas?</p>

<p>If you didn't get into the majority of the listed colleges, something is wrong with 1) our world and 2) those colleges. However, I'm not sure about Yale, Harvard, Caltech, and MIT since they're really selective. But, from the people I know who were accepted into those 4 schools (about 10 people), they all had similar statistics; you have a really good chance.</p>

<p>thanks for the inputs!</p>

<p>VERY good chances, but still the admission to super competitive schools (and ESPECIALLY stanford) is kinda random, so i donno</p>

<p>stanford-70% chance
harvard-40% chance
mit-70% chance
yale-50% chance
duke-80% chance
northwestern-80% chance
university of chicago-80% chance
washington university-80% chance
UIUC (bioengineering)-100% chance
carnegie mellon-95% chance
caltech- 70% chance</p>

<p>thanks a lot for the inputs guys!
neelesh - thanks for the breakdown. that really helps :)
paul - that's what i'm afraid of... I dunno why they accept certain people, deny some people (ie one of my friends had perfect act, sat, sat II scores, editor-in-chief of newspaper and still got rejected by stanford... but got into harvard...)</p>

<p>wow your ECs are amazing...so is everything else. im applying to stanford RD too...i wish my stats were as good as yours; you have a lot better chance than i. good luck to the both of us!</p>

<p>god luck - and lol you're better than me :) looked at your stuff!</p>

<p>I am a junior now at a Stanford Calibre school. You are in the running. Although there are a few deluded people who think they can get in with a 1400 and average other elements, most real candidates have scores like yours. After that it comes down to what else you have, how you present yourself and the whim of the committee. My advice is not to set your heart on any one very top school. With scores like yours you should apply to several and hope for one.</p>

<p>Hey, where do you go to school in Illinois? HF? Just curious... I'm from IL too.</p>

<p>mhawk u go to Homewood Flossmoor?</p>

<p>I don't think these colleges deserve to have students like you.</p>

<p>sorry but I don't understand? Why don't they deserve students like me? Hehe, i guess I'm slow, but is that good or bad?</p>

<p>Thanks for the inputs, btw, people.</p>

<p>i assume it's good</p>

<p>are you a guy or a girl?</p>
