I think you'll get into Georgetown for sure if you did early action. Northwestern...maybe, all I can say is I know less-qualified people that were accepted into NW :O

Thanks! Yeah I did apply GTown EA, but that's not really an advantage since its non-binding. They have about the same acceptance rate for EA as ED

Excellent chance at both, especially Northwestern.
Looking at the aforementioned scattergrams, the vast majority of ED applicants were admitted all the way down to 1250 SAT. Even without ED, your still at the cusp of where they seem to start even rejecting a smaller % of applicants. The Georgetown numbers are still pretty rosy for you though not a complete cakewalk.

Best of luck!

I have similar stats, what do you think about this profile for Yale?

By Zimm on Friday, December 06, 2002 - 11:10 pm: Edit

I wouldn't be very confident for Yale. I have pretty good stats, granted, but they're not extraordinary, and that's what it takes for Yale
