In a word, yes.

Your stats are awesome; I'm surprised you're even asking, honestly!

the only thing going against you is that you're an asian applicant. asians are reverse discriminated against.

Thank you for your responses. I was hoping to get into Amherst ED, my dream school, and I really hope that works out.

congratulations on your awesome stats! You will definitely get into Amherst..you might also want to apply to harvard and princeton because u would probably get in there too

Thanks. That was very amusing. I don't have a decent chance at HYP, but thanks for suggesting it.

what scores are you suggesting acceptees at HYP have?

asians are discriminated against.. word... yea im korean too... woo hoo...

By newuser! on Saturday, November 30, 2002 - 11:52 pm: Edit

Good times man. Hankook pride. hehe.

My scores may be good, but I know my ECs are not strong enough for me to get admitted to HYMPSC. And most HYP students were val, or at least sal.

did you really have to post your stats on this board as well. Its already annoying as it is that you had to post "What are my chances" threads every other thread, but this is getting out of hand.
