What can I expect?

<p>I'd like some opinions on my chances at top colleges. Here are my stats. </p>

<p>Black Male
GPA: 3.35 UW/4.1 W
Rank: 24 out of 254
SAT: 1570- 800 Math 770 Verbal
SAT II's: 790 Writing 690 US History 720 (projected) Math IIC
ACT: 30</p>

<p>AP scores: Psychology 5, World History 4, US History 4, English Language 4
Senior Schedule: </p>

<p>I've taken basically the hardest courseload available at my school with all honors or AP's. I'll have taken 7 AP classes, whereas the most of anyone in my school is 9, and I've taken the second most.</p>

<p>AP Calc AB
AP Chemistry
AP European History (Independent Study)
AP US Government
AP Humanities (mixture of English and History. Geared towards the Lit exam).</p>

<p>My Extracurriculars are probably slightly below average, but I've started my own baseball magazine and I'm a National Merit Semi-finalist. </p>

Dartmouth (first choice)

University of Rochester </p>

The College of New Jersey
Dickinson College</p>

<p>Essays and recommendations should be excellent. I understand that I should a good chance at most schools, especially with minority status, but I'm really worried about my rather low GPA/Rank and my below average EC's. Any thoughts on my chances would be appreciated. Oh, and I currently have all A's in my classes this Mp.</p>

<p>Sorry to do this, but Bump.</p>

<p>I'm relatively sure you will get accepted by all of the colleges you're applying to (or at least 3 out of the 5 reaches) because of your very high SAT's, minority status, decent class rank, and rigorous schedule. Make sure you crank out some good essays. Best of luck to you.</p>
