<p>Please Anyone, Help</p>

<p>Have you looked up the stats for those schools to see where you fall in their averages? If it's not easy enough to find that on their sites check out <a href="http://www.review.com%5B/url%5D"&gt;www.review.com&lt;/a> and maybe <a href="http://www.usnews.com%5B/url%5D"&gt;www.usnews.com&lt;/a> (not sure if they have those stats without a paid subscription tho). There's also the counselor o matic tool on review.com that can help you find schools, try that. If you put in narrow enough stats (specially geographic region) to bring up those unis it might tell you whether you're a reach, match or safety for them.</p>

<p>What do you want to study?</p>

<p>i want to study either international relations, or political science.</p>

University of Notre Dame (legacy, father had full scholarship)</p>

Boston University (although a match for BU's General Studies)
Fordham University (although a match for Marymount College of Fordham, the women's college)
University of Washington
Santa Clara University (from California, so more competitive)</p>

Univeristy of Colorado at Boulder
Northeastern University
University of San Diego
American University</p>

University of Arizona</p>

<p>Hi CC! I wanted to ask everyone for their opinion. What schools do you think would be good for me with these stats.</p>

<p>I want major aerospace engineer and minor in business.
Do yout think USC, Stanford, NYU, MIT, UCLA, Boston College, Columbia, and the University of Chicago are to much?</p>

<p>Offer others schools if possible.</p>

<p>Thank YOU!!!!</p>

<p>rick101, All of those except MIT look like reasonable matches, MIT mainly takes valedictorians (if you get some sort of prestigious science award, maybe one having something to do with aerospace engineering, then you may have a good chance, I know they LOVE to see things like that, and those engineering programs will look good to them, but they might not be enuf 2 get u in if you don't excel to the fullest in them, as in win an award or something.) If you want to go to Standford or UCLA, raise your SATI scores.</p>

<p>how the heck can you get a 1200 SAT and be smart enough to get 800 Math IIC? Or do i not know what I'm talking about?</p>

<p>what kind of professions can one have with a astrophysics major or minor? About the 800 on the II C I studied for 2 weeks</p>

<p>I got a C- in Honors Chemistry and an 800 on the Chemistry SAT II.</p>

<p>A 690 on the Writing SAT II and 5s on the AP English Exams.</p>

<p>Some people have bad days, some people aren't good test takers. It's really a very unstable business - testing.</p>

<p>I'd say you're pretty secure at every school you applied except Northeastern. In which you've still pretty good chances, just not as secure.</p>
