    nice title d-bag. screw you liar.
  • alee883alee883 Registered User Posts: 72 Junior Member
    now, to get serious, you should shoot higher. more ivies. unless you can't afford them. cuz your stats are great.

    ^Actually, his list is fine.

    Cornell/JHU: low reach/reach
    Good chance at the rest
  • MondoMondo Registered User Posts: 985 Member
    ^ Would agree with BillBank
    Apply to schools u like not just because they are 'Ivies' and 'top schools'..but if u find high reaches u really like.. apply!!
    That is how I feel about the college I attend right now.

    Answer to your other question: Harvard didn't like my 1560/2280. What makes you think they'd like your 1230? :p

    If you are thinking about applying somewhere early, I would recommend Cornell or Middlebury.

    How original, stealing my 1440 MIT thread.

    Cornell is harder to get in than it looks, sure it's a fairly big school and considered to be the 'easiest' of the Ivies to get into but everybody applies there!

    Possibly: Cornell, Hopkins, Bowdoin
    Likely: Middlebury
    Most likely: Brandeis, Conn, Trinity
    In: Lehigh, NYU, RPI

    Middlebury is probably only a 35-40% shot. As posted, there is no area of passion or strong interest other than tennis, which the OP wishes to discontinue. Middlebury gets and rejects lots of similiar applicants. Other than Bowdoin, the OP looks strong. (Bowdoin really handpicks their admittees--so without a compelling "why Bowdoin", chances are slim.)
