<p>Everyone tells me my essays are really good, so I'll take their word on it...
My teachers all like me, so I'm fairly certain they put some wonderful things about me in their recommendations...</p>

<p>^Thanks for reading this stuff I just vomited out at you^ :)</p>

<p>You should put UChicago, Cornell and Dartmouth in your college list as reaches, although your gpa and act are little low everything else looks fantastic and being an URM is definitely going to help you a lot :).
Try balance your list with 2 matches and 1 safety per reach. Best of luck.
Chance me if you can, thank you:

<p>I didn’t read the part where you mention you wanted matches. In my opinion Occidental, USC, NYU, Reed, Colgate, Boston College, Trinity, UCSD, BU and Northeastern are in the high match/low match range for you.</p>

<p>I am an international student from Vietnam thinking of financial aid as the only way to get to Trinity.
My sister has just graduated from Trinity and I am deeply in love with this beautiful college according to what my sister told me about the Faculty.
My stats:

  1. TOEFL ibt : 115/120
  2. SAT I : CR 690, Maths 710, Writing 660. Total: 2060.
  3. GPA: 3.8 (weighted)
  4. Activity: Class president ( 12 years )
  5. Honors: third prize in English competition in 2009 and 2011, second prize in 2012, highest GPA among peers.
  6. 3 recommendation letters, 1 essay.
    Assuming that the recommendation letters are strong enough, my essay is (hopefully) a touching one, what chances would I have at this magnificent college?
    Best regards,
