    What does your HS's Naviance results look like? If you live in rural Wyoming and are the first kid ever to apply to Penn I'd tell your chances look great. If you live in Scarsdale or Winnetka- you'll have a lot of history to look at which will be telling. Do kids with your profile get in or not? Without knowing the kind of HS you go to, how in heck can we be helpful or predictive?

    15 people had a higher GPA than me and got rejected, I have the highest SAT score of everyone that applied. One person had a 4.2 (on a 4.3 = A+ scale) and got waitlisted/unknown RD. I know the last kid and his is unknown because he got into Nortwestern. 19 applicants to Upenn across the last 3 years. School is in a rather urban area.
