Will I get in?

Here are my stats:
3.7 GPA
1450 on SAT (as of right now...)
I am out of state however. Does that make a difference? Also, is it a good school? Please tell me what you think! Thanks.

    Well, being out of state (Illinois), I feel that I need to rely heavily upon people's opinions instead of just the internet and information sent to me in the mail. I personally feel it's an amazing school, but am unable to go and visit until the fall. So, before I waste my time and money, I felt I should see what other people thought about the school. Thanks...

    its very good school, but consider the cost. its a long way to go, unless you want to end up in CA after you are done, you might want to think about staying closer to home.

    my personal opinion, whcih is worth about .02 is it is not worth the money. it does not have the national rep that other schools have yet it is just as expensive. if money is an issue, i would think twice

    apply to vandy, with you stats, you can get money there. they will give 'ships for good students if they want you. of the top 20 schools, they give the most aid and much is not tied to income

    Yeah you should look at some schools ranked a little higher. If you really want to go to California, then you should look at USC, UCLA, etc....
