You guys are the experts, what are some match schools for me?

<p>Hey! I already have two reach schools, Notre Dame and Northwestern. I know these may not be realistic and I would like some matches because my other schools are pretty much safeties.</p>

<p>1400 SAT 760-v 640-m
3.83 GPA Unweighted
All honors and APS
I've taken every AP class at my school except AP Chem, but I a taking two science classes this year to make up for it and one is running start
rank is 8% not a competitive school standard public</p>

track 4yrs
cross country 4yrs
teen advisory council
ASB Secretary (12)
link crew
youth group
french club
theater 9 and 12 grades</p>

food bank
children's museum
lots of hours with political campaigns last year for local mayor this year for presidential and senatorial race</p>

<p>English and history are my best subjects and I know I can write essays that are up to par, also my uncle went to notre dame
So do I have a chance at my reach schools? What are some realistic matches?</p>

<p>You have a realistic shot at both Northwestern and Notre Dame. For you, both are right on the borderline of reach and match. Notre Dame can be pretty unpredictable for admissions, and unless your uncle is a big donor his alum status is unlikely to help. Certainly won't hurt though, so get it mentioned somewhere in your app.</p>

<p>Lots of good schools for your English and history interests. If you would like to stay in the midwest, some big school options would be UMich and UWisconsin. Very good liberal arts school choices would be Kenyon and Oberlin (matches) with Lawrence and Knox good safeties to investigate.</p>

<p>Thanks for your help. I'm not actually from the midwest, I'm from Washington. I don't know a lot about Oberlin. Where is it and how hard is it to get in to?</p>

<p>Does anyone else have any ideas? I really need some help I have no clue where I should apply!</p>

<p>Come on guys! I need help!</p>

<p>I'm going to have to bump</p>

<p>bump bump bump!</p>

<p>I heard from students who goto northwestern that northwestern isn't that great!</p>

<p>I know an alum who loved it then went to uof chicago for law school I want to know if I have a shot!</p>
