What are my chances+?

<p>These are the schools i am applying to:
Washington University in St. Louis
University of Vermont
maybe Muhlenberg

<p>What are my chances at getting into each of these schools? I would appreciate percents rather than adjectives like good or bad, but those are still welcome.
Other suggestions (different schools) are more than welcome, they are encouraged.</p>

<p>These are my stats:</p>

<p>Math: 800
Verbal: 680</p>

<p>GPA: 3.2
Class rank not given by my school</p>

<p>MathIIC: 690
Writing: 660
Will probably take Spanish (have to have 3 for Vassar)</p>

<p>Including this year, I have taken 3 years of German, 4 years in Spanish to Spanish 5 (3 years of honors), 4 years in English (3 years honor) , Math up to calc ab ap (the rest honors courses), also statistics ap, 4 years history (2 aps), 3 years of science, 4 years Art</p>

<p>Junior year was my worst. This year i am taking less honors courses and getting better grades.</p>

<p>Extracurricular Activities: I will have an art portfolio (good pieces, not superb for the most part, and mostly not finished looking, but certainly telling of talent); i play chess madly outside of school, not in the school club, but play in tournaments outside school and am starting lessons; i play electric guitar</p>

<p>bump bump bump bump</p>

<p>o and i playeed soccer in ninth and tenth grade in case it counts. also tried mock trial last year and was in youth and government in ninth grade. i doubt those will make my applications but uh hey, maybe they will.</p>

<p>I would say that your SAT I scores are not bad for any of those choices, but your SAT II and GPA might lower your chances a bit. A 3.2 doesn't sit well...and a bad junior year is disappointing.</p>

<p>I'm not too familiar with the others, but I'd say you have a low chance aof getting into Wash. U.</p>

<p>thx. i know WashU would be a reach. do i have a shot? 10%, 5%, 25%? do sat iis matter that much? i could probably study for the math iic and get like a 750 and maybe a 700 on the writing.</p>

<p>I think you have axcellent shot at all including WashU.</p>

<p>i know u said all, and that tends to include everything. However, i have to question that with regards to Vassar. Do i really have an excellent shot there? I mean, I'm a marksman, mark my word, but I'm no Robin Hood.</p>

<p>One other question: Would University of Vermont qualify as a safety?</p>

<p>WashU is a long shot...maybe 5-10% chance. Vassar is 10-15%. Bucknell is about 20-25%. Skidmore is 60-75%. Clark is at about 70-75%. Muhlenburg about 75-80%. And, UVM is about 75-85%.</p>

<p>just, could u be a bit more specific? those numbers are sort of meaningless with broad ranges like that. No, seriously, that was an awesome response, specifically for its specificity.</p>

<p>If i applied ED to Skidmore would my chances greatly increase? Same question for Vassar and Bucknell.</p>


<p>Your only issue is a slightly low GPA. This will matter less if you're at a very competitive high school. Otherwise, I've seen kids with these stats, with your kind of wide ranging interests (art and chess), get into all of these schools. I see Vermont, Skidmore and Muhlenberg as safties. Vassar a slight reach and only Washington a reach. But they love high SAT scores. Don't know enough to comment on other schools.</p>

<p>ED would help you most at Vassar and Skidmore, as they have more women than men...about 60% w/40% m. It will help at Bucknell too, though.</p>

<p>I'd ED I at Vassar (If it is your first choice), then decide (after hearing from Vassar) which one of the other two to apply to ED II, if you like.</p>

<p>WashU is stats driven, hence the low %.
Vassar is a bit concerned with gpa, although ED would make it more like 40-50%.
Bucknell is more stats driven, ED would move it to 40-50% range.
Skidmore stats and yours are a good match.
Clark is almost a safety for you.
Muhlenburg would be a safety.
UVM wants more out-of-state students, and you profile is towards the 75%ile.</p>

<p>Hope this helps.</p>

<p>how much greater a chance (in your estimations) will a nov. 15 ED give me over a jan. 1 ED? will a jan. 1 ED give me any edge? ( i would prefer to go to vassar than skidmore, and they require 3 satiis which i do not have.)</p>
