Here are my Stats:
47/443 3.43 Academic UW at a Nationally-Known Public HS. (It is ranked in all these lists e.g. newsweek, redbook, NEA, etc). 1460 SAT, 720M/740V. There is no reason i should not have an 800M, so i am retaking for a 1540+ in November.
Estimated SAT 2's: 800 Math 2C, 680-730 Writing, 740 Chem (this was from June), 710-760 Literature
US Gov: 5
Comparative Gov: 5
Calc BC:3 AB Sub:3
Senior Year: (estimated semester grade)
AP Statistics: B or A
AP Art History: A
AP Bio: A
AP English: A
AP Physics: A
AP Euro: B or A
By the end of semester 1 my rank should change to about 35-39/430
EC's: 2 Years Swimming, States my first year, Captain this year. (Not good enough for recruiting)
Co-Founded a Political Club at School (11-12). We got in the paper a couple times.
Major Church Involvement since 7th grade, I am getting a rec.
Piano since 2nd grade (no competitions or recitals since 9th)
The only reason I am not 3.9+ is because i never ever ever did my homework, i didnt learn by doing homework, i didnt like doing it, and i didnt care about it.
I can write an amazing essay and an inverview would help my chances a great deal.

rice emory, yes... chicago, probably if the essay and recs are good, duke... 50%.... just a question you have a very random selection of schools in different states and enviorments, why'd you choose those?

well rice emory and duke are all southern schools so i get why he did that. chicago is a bit different, especially if this kid is so averse to doing work.
|By Richard from FL on Sunday, October 13, 2002 - 05:07 pm: Edit|
Well I liked the Chicago literature i received and i have heard nothing but good things about it. I am not really averse to doing work, rather, I am averse to doing busywork.

Any other suggestions? I am a PR guy, and this board seems much better, although it takes days to get a response.

I say no to duke, others probably

Chicago is less selective than its prestige would indicate. They accept close to half of all applicants. Having talked extensively with their admissions staff, I know that they place heavy emphasis on interviews, essays, and recommendations. They like kids who are thinkers. I live in the Chicago suburbs and have several friends who went there, and they say that the academic coursework is difficult, but the stereotype of Chicago as the place where "Fun Comes to Die" is misplaced.

Good to know. I don't know where I would go if both Rice and Chicago accepted me. I am hoping someone makes that decision for me. I don't really have a true match school, I looked at Vandy, but it sucks IMO. They want to be Duke, and they pretend they are at Duke level.

I don't understand. All these stats are your guesses? How can you be judged on the basis of estimated statistics and statements like "I can write an amazing essay"?

I didn't think my post was flamebait... Everything is written in stone except my math 2C and writing (which i took last saturday) and my rank, which i almost know will go up. My rank as of now IS 47/444. My GPA as of now IS 3.43, my SAT as of now IS 1460 and the only sat 2 i have released is a 740 Chem. I AM Captain of the swim team, I AM a member of all the clubs i listed. None of this is speculation except the fact that i dont know my sat 2 scores for another 2 weeks and i haven't retaken my sat 1's.
|By Richard from FL on Wednesday, October 16, 2002 - 06:21 pm: Edit|
The grades are my 9 weeks grades. The A/B classes are classes where i got a B+ or A- last nine weeks. I earned every AP score I listed.

hey Richard! Dude, what did you get for the last question in the 25 question math section with the I,II,and III. Was it all three of them that worked Choice E.
Also ,remember the last question in the open-ended section with the four squares that asked you for the value of t? Was it 4?
Another thing, in the 10 question math section, what did you get for the one question that said c/d=8/3 and d/e=7/3 or something like that? Was it Choice C?
|By anon on Wednesday, October 16, 2002 - 08:18 pm: Edit|
hopeful, the answer to the c/d math question was: C>e... i believe it was choice b.
|By hopeful on Wednesday, October 16, 2002 - 08:53 pm: Edit|
so was it b or c?

I took the SAT 2's. Hoping for 800M2C. Hopeful, What are you doing here, this seems freakish to be talking to you on another forum. Yes it is I, the great Rico Suave soon to be of PR fame.
|By hopeful on Wednesday, October 16, 2002 - 10:49 pm: Edit|
How can it be B? There is absolutely no way. My friend got a 1570 in June and he got C as an answer.
|By Richard from FL on Friday, October 25, 2002 - 04:25 pm: Edit|
Ok my real SAT 2's are out
780 Writing 750 Math 2C 740 Chem 710 Lit
