I think I have good test scores, GPA, and class rank; just average AP scores and EC's.
I'm interested in attending Cornell, Columbia, Johns Hopkins, UC Berkeley, and Princeton. I think I have a decent shot at the first three, but not Berkeley (because I'm not a CA resident) or Princeton (because of my average EC's).
What do you think my chances are?

I don't know, dude. Those scores are awesome, though...but you need a little more distinction on ECs and you're definitely going to have to work those essays.

Well, I suppose that depends on your essay. Laylow, you sound a little disgruntled.
