I know people are sick of these posts, but Wash U is my first choice school. I am applying RD only becuase I have a good shot at getting a scholarship from another one of my top schools, but Wash U is where I want to be.

Here are my stats:
3.95 unwieghted GPA
720-Math, 680-Writing, 680-Verbal
670-Math 2, 690-Math 1, 690-Biology
I got fours on both AP US History and AP Biology (the only AP classes that Juniors could take)
This year I am taking AP Spanish, AP English, and AP AB Calculus
very good EC- president of clubs, many youth group positions, active choir member, Sunday School teacher
very good recs from Math and English teacher
good counselor rec

I have also heard that you have a better chance of getting in if you apply for all possible scholarships.

Any help would be great.

    I dont know...those SAT's seem a little low. I actually just barely got in as a transfer student and I had:

    800 Math SAT1
    630 Verbal SAT1
    800 Math 2C SAT2
    780 Math 1C SAT2
    800 Physics SAT2
    670 Writing SAT2

    Good luck to you, but they are really concentrating hard on SAT scores this year for freshmen. But everything else sounds pretty good on your record.

    What they lookm at for transfer students is probably different than what they look at for incoming freshman. I know my SATs are a little low, but they claim that they look at the transcript the most

    Your M+V SATs are a little weak for WashU. Median for admitted freshman is 1435, though 25th to 75th percentile is 1350 to 1520, so you're in the ball park. Your grades look good. Ditto class rank and ECs. These should help. I'd say you have a 50% chance. Celebrate if you get in, but don't be surprised if you don't.
