What are my chances...

<p>Hello,
My name is Sam Baderdeen and I am a Senior this year. I was just wondering if my list of schools that I am applying to is too much of a stretch. I plan to major in economics/english as a dual-degree. I am applying to (in order of where I want to go)...</p>

<p>Emory, Carnegie Mellon, Wake Forest, Sewanee, Brandeis, Case Western Reserve, Furman, University of Washington, University of Rochester, and the University of Minnesota</p>

<p>Stats
GPA:3.745, 4 top in class awards (Agebra 1,Macroeconomics, Speech, and Political Science)
Rank 8/144
SAT: 1760 (Math:580, Reading:600, Writing:580)</p>

<p>I have not taken any AP classes, but only because my school doesn't offer any; however I will graduate with my AA from a Grays Harbor College once I graduate high school.</p>

<p>Extra-Curriculars:</p>

<p>Grays Harbor College Student Council (youngest member to ever be a part of the GHC student council)</p>

<p>FFA: National Placer in both Poultry Evaluation and Parliamentary Procedures. 3rd in State Prepared Speech. 3x Chapter VP, 2x District Secretary.</p>

<p>Class of 2013: 3x Class Officer</p>

<p>SkillsUSA: State Champion Creed Speaker, State Champion OCC team.</p>

<p>Multicultural Club Secretary.</p>

<p>Athletics:</p>

<p>Wrestling: Sophomore and Junior year Varsity</p>

<p>Football: Freshman year, Varsity at a small school</p>

<p>Basketball: Varsity Point Guard as a freshman</p>

<p>Am I kidding myself with some of these colleges?</p>

<p>Your SAT score is pretty low. Are you taking it again in October?</p>

<p>I am retaking the SAT in October and December</p>

<p>Alright, I feel like the average SAT scores for those schools is around 2000. Your GPA is a bit on the low side, but it's nothing you couldn't change with some hard work this year.</p>

<p>If you get your SAT to around a 2000 CMU is low reach, if not it is a high reach. If I remember correctly the require subject tests as well...</p>
