Jason, probably, if he lives in California.
Rank 4 and a 4.0 UW GPA would get him in.

what about my chances at a school like Georgetown?

I had a 1290 SAT and a 4.1 weighted gpa and got into Berkeley (didn't apply to UCLA) as well as USC.

but you had loads of EC's didn't you?
|By Uschicka (Uschicka) on Tuesday, September 23, 2003 - 02:19 am: Edit|
Schools don't care about a laundry list of ECs, as long as you show commitment to them. I had a couple random ECs, but mainly I had ones that I spent a lot of time with (4 years band/section leader, 4 years community service organization and 1 as president, etc).
