Discus: What Are My Chances?: December 2002 Archive: What are my chances at Yale ED
By nswisher64 on Wednesday, December 04, 2002 - 12:35 am: Edit

Hey, I was just wondering if anyone had an opinion on if i would be able to get into Yale early decision. I'm just stressing over it a little bit.

One thing: my school doesn't offer AP classes, but I'm taking a few tests... probably around 4 by the end of my senior year. Right now I'm taking 5 Honors Classes. I'm strong in the classes I'm taking but I was put in Calc AB rather than BC because of a schedule conflict. Would this hurt my chances significantly? I attend a highly competitive private boarding/day school. Tell me what I should work on, in your opinion.
