<p>What are my chances for Duke, Auburn, Clemson, Vandy, Ga tech, UFl????</p>

<p>I will be honest.
Duke - no chance at all.
Vandy - maybe, but I doubt it
Gatech - can happen</p>

<p>dang, can anybody help me??????</p>

<p>please, somebody with more opinions???</p>

<p>whats your rank?</p>

<p>my rank is 18 percentile. I am 68/374</p>

<p>Take the SATs again. And kill yourself studying for it. Other than that at this point there's really nothing else you can do...</p>

<p>so whats up, what chance do i have at these schools, nobody has given me an in depth, great opinion, just stupid side comments(sorry, but you all have not helped)</p>

<p>What exactly do you want? A written analysis of all your extra curricular activities?</p>

<p>You have a low GPA, low SAT scores, low ACT scores and low rank, compared to the average at Duke.</p>

<p>Your ECs are average to above average. But there really isn't anything about you that stands out... besides your race.</p>

<p>no david, and you dont have to be som blunt, because that does not help. i just want to know my chances for each one iof the following schools i have applied to</p>

<p>I think btbvector summed them up for you. I'm sorry if you don't like what he said.</p>

<p>you have no chance for Duke.</p>

<p>so what schools, engineering or physics, do you all recommend. and besides, I AM ASKING MY CHANCES FOR THE OTHER SCHOOLS AS WELL, JUST NOT FOR DUKE. LOOK AT WHAT I ASKED.</p>

<p>How about Purdue? </p>

<p>Ever considered going to the West Coast? University of California Riverside, Irvine, Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara are decent schools and you have a legit shot at all of those schools. Plus UCs love minorities.</p>

<p>Look at the stats for the schools you are interested in. If your scores are above 25%, you have a chance (your URM status will help you at most colleges). If your scores are above 75%, you can probably consider it a safety. You can look up this info on the college web site, or in any college guide book.</p>

<p>Try RPI or R-H.</p>

<p>what colleges do you guys think i should spend my time looking at. i would like to go to a large well known college in the south known for thier physics program or civil engineering</p>

<p>U-Texas Austin maybe?</p>

<p>i think you should try for purdue. howardini222 already suggested that, it's not too hard to get into, since it is a public school, but it's either top or number 2 to notre dame engineering in the state of indiana. i'm not sure as to which is better. you can also try rose-hulman tech...it's also in indiana, ranked third for eng., but not as prestigious. also look into your in-state engineering schools. some are pretty decent. i consider myself lucky to actually live in indiana.</p>

<p>i am from georgia, would tech be good for me</p>
