I have relatively good stats
16/617 = 2.5% at a really competitive school
12 APs by the end of senior year
BUT I have my heart set on going to University of Texas at Austin. My parents (asian . Omg) are actually okay with this they actually want me to stay close. A lot of my friends who are applying to only Ivies (1st choice Yale, MIT, etc) are saying that I should go somewhere else because UT is not good enough. Okay . One of them actually was like well, Im going to end up as your boss because Im probably going to go to MIT I have automatic admissions into the McCombs School of Business (which is ranked 6th in the nation) Do recruiters look past prestige???
My list: UPenn, NYU, Berkeley, UT but Im 99% sure that Im going to UT.
