    don't compare yourself to other people
    in state should make it a little easier (people don't attack me if im wrong) also the whole first gen and urm thing
    i think you might need more EC's but idk if you put a full list so i'm not going to judge that (the ones you have are strong)

    also i know you didn't say your unweighted GPA or course rigor, and i think that those 2 might push you right to an acceptance, but im not entirely sure

    nobody should ridicule you!! nobody here is an expert, and you really have a shot wherever you apply, especially if you have a meaningful application

    good luck and keep us updated!

    that's actually a question that I had. So ive only taken 9 ap's (1 sophmore year, 4 junior year, and 4 senior year), was wondering if that was enough.

    also not too sure about rigor though :/

    my senior year consists of
    AP lit, AP gov, AP research, and AP french V
    Functions anal. which is weighted as an Ap
    and astronomy and another stupid elective

    Honestly, do not worry about it there is nothing you can really do to dramatically change your chances of acceptance at this point, just have to wait it out. If it meant to be it will happen, if not there will definitely be another great option out there for you, where you will be able to succeed!

    Would love an honest answer! UVA is my top choice but I am applying RD to avoid being compared to all the NYC kids that are applying REA to IV league schools.

    Latina, from NYC private school
    GPA 3.9/4.0
    *School doesn't offer APs or IBs. But I took maximum amount of classes*
    ACT 30
    SAT II 730

    President of Food and Hunger Advocacy Club and LatinX club
    Intern at Harvard Humanitarian Initiative
    Olympic Development Team for Equestrian Eventing

    Essays are good.
