<p>I think you have a pretty fair chance, your test scores and classes seem to be good, but remember almost everyone that applies to Duke has great grades and tests. Find some way to distinguish yourself from the applicant pool. Have you done any unique activities outside of sports or school?</p>

<p>WOW! I think you have a good chance at any school you apply to, but like the other person said, talk about some different or interesting activity you have been involved in.</p>

<p>yeah, early decision you have an above average chance. By the way, I think we've pretty much deduced that Who's Who is a scam, and your miscellaneous things aren't really going to make a difference. You could write an essay about one of them though. but yeah with your grades and sports stuff you have a pretty good chance early.</p>

<p>post your stats on the early decision roster =) tryin to see if we can get a good list going</p>
