Most of the top schools have admit rates between 5.5 and 12%. A whole lot of HIGHLY qualified students will be turned down.

If you are not a recruited athlete or a legacy applicant, your admission chances probably won't be any better than the school's overall admit rate.

As long as you understand that, you have realistic expectations.
