What are my chances?

<p>Of getting into UChicago, UPenn, Cornell, Northwestern, Princeton, Columbia, Wash U, Duke, and UVA---I am a junior who attends a very competitive public high school-ranked top 100 in the country by USA world news report</p>

<p>I have a 2140 SAT, 800 math, 720 Writing, 620 CR
800 Math II, 780 Chem, 670 US----Subject Tests
Run a 4:25 mile and a 1:58 800 meter--good runner (4 year varsity)
Have a 3.65 GPA Unweighted, and a 4.28 weighted
Will have taken 10 AP classes by the end of high school--all 4's and 5's
and 8 additional honors classes
Member of 3 clubs, President of one cultural club
Completed 200+ hours of community service
Will have completed two month long internships by senior year on Wall Street, and the United Nations
Big Brother leader
Indian-American</p>

<p>My school doesn't rank</p>

<p>Competetive transcript and such, but nothing really stands out. Those schools receive thousands upon thousands of applications with excellent test scores so you really need to use your extracurriculars (which seem average in my opinion) and other subjective materials (essays and recs) to stand out. Also, your test scores are at the lower end of the median ranges for these schools. I would recommend a retake of the SAT I to hopefully break 2200+. Ultimately, you have an okay shot, especially with improved test scores.</p>

<p>With your test scores, GPA and ECs, Penn, Princeton, and Columbia are out of reach, and everything else will be at the least low reaches, unless you ED somewhere.</p>

<p>Don't the two inturnships stand out</p>

<p>if you cant spell internships, you shouldn't be attending these schools....</p>

<p>It's called a typo, the person spelled internships right up above, so leave them alone. You have a shot at UVA, Washington, and Duke, however the others are a reach. You should try to raise your GPA, and also your CR score.</p>

<p>Dude get out haha, I'm an Indian American too, I used to attend one of the top high schools #13 IDEA Academy in Donna, Texas but I had to move to Bay City, Texas so got out just before high school started. And IDEA Goes all the way from Kinder-12th so I would've been in there all my life.</p>

<p>Apparently none of these people understand how much of an impact athletics can have on admission to ivies. I'm a runner too, and 4:25 and 1:58 are rather good times for a Junior. If you are interested in running in college, contact the track coaches at the schools you want to go to. My school's top runner, Tom Sanderson, got into Columbia with a PSAT of 206 and an SAT of 2090 because he ran 1:57/4:18/9:22 his junior year and kept in touch with the head track coaches there. He was also an emancipated minor, but didn't have nearly as many credentials as you do. Use your athletic abilities to your benefit.</p>

<p>Thank you 'Pioneerjones' for your insightful comment, and I have started talking to a few coaches. Secondly 'theman44' your an arrogant douschebag, anybody who calls themselves the man is entirely not 'the man'. You are not a bro! Instead I bet your a dumb ass guido, or even worse a hipster.</p>

<p>Whether yourrr school ranks or not these schools will knoppw exatly where you rank. Tey also expect high scores from elite school students.</p>

<p>I'd have to agree that ivies would bea challenge unless you get recruited.</p>
