Unless they lose your application in the mail, you are in.

I'd apply senior year, though.

why specifically senio ryear? i know i'd be missing out on senior year, so even if i get in i might decide not togo. i'd also have more time to get some more shcolarships for the college.

i appreciate your comment, but i hope you can understand how i would also like another opinion

Well, it seems that H (also my dream) takes VERY few students who have not yet completed HS. I wouldn't rush through, and apply to college a year early. It seems as though they are very much reluctant to do this, as they want to make sure you have "enjoyed" high school.

I'd say apply senior year and you have a very good chance of ED acceptance. But at that level, part of it is chance anyway.

Umm, unless your application is smeared with crap and therefore becomes illegible - you are definetaly in.

Too much estimation on your SAT I and II's.
