thank you, that puts my mind at ease, out of curiosity are there any other schools i should look at

you'll get in. michigan is the best school for your $$, but you should consider other schools just in case

Heh, you'd probably make it as a out-of-state Caucasian; they'll likely be dumping money on you. And we can have no idea what you should look at unless you say what you're looking *for*. :)

i want to go to a place that stresses writing, history and creative thinking. Though on paper im a good math and science student, i really dont enjoy those subjects all that much. maybe a school smaller than michigan, though ive wanted to go there forever, it is a scary thought that there will be thousands of people in my class instead of 180. an suggestions- as u can probally tell im not very well informed on the whole college thing

U of Chicago? Northwestern? Carleton? (some great midwestern schools)

How do you live in michigan and not know that your a lock? with a 1570 and everything else, plus URM, I dont think you have a problem but don't go asking people that anymore. especially anyone in michigan because it's very naive and doesnt sound like it is coming from a 1570 student.

Go to harvard, you will get into any school you want to.

Umm, Sprite888, unless the mailman takes a •••• all over your application while delivering it to the school thereby making it illegible, you are guaranteed in the U of Michigan. Heck, I'd say you're guaranteed into Harvard. I agree w/ Liljay. It's almost naive of you to even post this. You shuld have the sense to know you'll get in. I'm beginning to question the validity of your stats . . .
