Acceptees, were all of you valedictorians? or just top 10%? thanks for your help.

When I was accepted, I was actually 88/842, which rounded up to 90th percentile. Note: My school does not use weighted grades and not many people take more than one AP class, if any.

Ranked #2 valedictorian. The guy that's ranked #1 is going to USC, which is kinda weird. #3 is going to MIT, #4 to UPENN. Oh, and it's out of 662 -- big public socal school.

i got all A's and took 8 APs (ok, maybe a bit below average.. lol) but i wasn't even ranked in the top ten (out of about 700). my school is year round and one of the other tracks offers more APs and doesn't have the same yearly performing arts requirement.... etc... but the point is, class rank really doesn't mean that much. at least i don't think it does.. i was all bummed that my ranking wasn't so high, but the only other person at my school to get into an ivy was ranked even lower than me. so there you go. good luck!

"bulldogswmr, i can assure you that you will be humbled the moment you step on Yale."
Well, I can assure you that I won't. I truly believe that I am one of the smartest people ever born. I took 9 courses my senior year, 7 of which were APs. The other two were accelerated courses that I took after school. I still didn't feel challenged, but no more courses were able to fit into my schedule.
My AP Courses senior year: AP Physics, AP Biology, AP Calculus BC, AP Economics, AP English, AP Government, and AP French.
I also took independent study courses in Spanish and Ethics.
I never received any final grade lower than an A throughout my entire high-school career. I was the first student in 5 years to receive an A+ in AP Physics. The AP Physics final exam was supposed to take 2 hours. I finished in 1 hour and 15 minutes, while many people couldn't even finish in the two hour time limit.
I got a 1600 on my SATs, and took 6 SAT II's. I received 5 800's and 1 790. I also scored a 36 on my ACTs. In school, I consistently outsmarted my teachers, and many times even annoyed them because of my superior knowledge. I honestly believe that I knew more Math than my AP Calculus BC teacher.
I was obviously the valedictorian (#1 in a class that numbered over 500) and basically slept my way through high-school.
I received a letter from Yale saying that I was one of the top 100 applicants. I read this letter to myself, and said: "Of course I am." I honestly believe that I will go to Yale, and easily be the smartest student there. I know that my vast knowledge will even surpass many professors. High-School was a complete bore, and I have a feeling that Yale will be the same way. So look out for me when I arrive on campus in the fall.

I'll be sure to keep an eye out for the kid with a head the size of a hot air balloon.
i can only hope that your post was a feeble attempt at satire, but i'll assume it wasn't.
knowing that people like you exist and that i'll have to live with you and take classes with you for the next four years makes me want to go to junior college instead.
i would dare to venture that the reason you didn't feel challenged in high school was that your overdeveloped intellect was merely compensating for your severe lack of social prowess.
No matter how smart you may be, you're gonna have a tough time making friends at yale or networking in the career world with an attitude like that. good luck to you, you'll need it.

the College722' post is awesome......
I was just wondering whether you had a lot (if any?) friends at High school?
And besides one more question. As you stated it, it seems that you haven't achieved anything in this life. I mean you did nothing to get all those accomplishments with scores, grades, etc. Because you said it wasn't at all challenging. So, it is just the Nature that gave it to you. So, what are YOU so proud about? If school was boring to you, why didn't you do anything challenging?
And the last question. Why are you going to Yale anyway? If it's going to be boring, etc.

I read this letter to myself, and said: "Of course I am."
This couldn't be anything more than satire. I refuse to beleive otherwise, if someone like that takes himself as seriously he or she must be severely retarded.

"I received a letter from Yale saying that I was one of the top 100 applicants. I read this letter to myself, and said: 'Of course I am.' I honestly believe that I will go to Yale, and easily be the smartest student there."
Sorry College722, but I got a letter saying I was the BEST applicant, so you're sadly not as good as me.
"I got a 1600 on my SATs, and took 6 SAT II's. I received 5 800's and 1 790. I also scored a 36 on my ACTs."
I didn't even have to take the SATs because the collegeboard wrote me a letter saying it would be a waste of time.
***Calm down everyone, it's the internet, you can say what you want, College722 is just kidding around because he knows anything on this board doesn't matter in the end

The thing that weirds me out, is that even if you have amazing grades, and can do amazing things, why wouldn't you *try* to challenge yourself? Why not put your intellect to good use? I'm sure many people have, but somehow it still matters more that your academics are good. That's what you choose to brag about? (by you, i'm refering to College722 or people like him/her)
I dont' know, call me crazy, but i take more pride in things i motivated myself to do. From extensive community service, to taking care of stray cats (from big, to small). Whatever it may be (tutoring, etc.), things that you do to challenge yourself in some way. Things that you don't necessarily brag about, but the things that should come first to mind when you think about what matters most. Academics can matter, sure, but not if they bore you so much.
Anywho, just offering my (nearly nonsensical) two cents.

"I'm looking for a school that is the best at everything. I want top academics, facilities, dormitories, professors, and athletics. I also want the school to have an amazing reputation, a great location, and to be good in every academic discipline. In addition, I want the school to have an intelligent, friendly, and diverse student body. Basically, I want the perfect school. What do you guys think is the closest thing? "
obviously, college722 isn't a yalie 08

That all is weirdly strange. He is either going insane or just kidding.
All the information college722 has given about himself on the CC differs greatly in different posts. Don't you remember what you are lying about? Or what?
1. Valedictorian (1 out of 678)/ Maxed out GPA (5.0)/ Have consistently won the majority of academic awards given out since freshman year. Fluent in 3 languages (English, Spanish, German).
2. Three sport athlete: Football, Winter Track, Baseball(Captain of all 3 since Junior year)
3. President of 6 clubs / Nationally ranked debater since freshman year
SAT I: Math: 800, Verbal: 800. Took in 11th grade - No prep whatsoever
SAT II: Writing: 800, Math IIC: 800, Spanish: 800, History: 790, Chemistry: 770, Physics: 760. No Prep
First Freshman to take AP courses. 18 AP courses taken. 10 AP exams taken. 5's on 7, 4's on 3 "
"I'm a black male going to Stanford"
What's going on?
Anyway, in either case, i think he sounds just like an immature child.
