Out of the following schools, put what you think is the most difficult to the least difficult to get admitted to.

Princeton, Harvard, Yale, MIT, CalTech, Stanford, Berkley, Columbia, and all the other ivys that i didn't mention

depends on race and where you are and what you are strong at.

ok assuming all things equal then: white male; 1500 SAT, you know the rest, your typical genius

1. Princeton
2. MIT
3. Harvard
4. Yale
5. Stanford
6. Columbia
7. Berkley
8. CalTech

All of these schools have highly competitive admissions though. Sometimes it can depend on where you are, especially in cases for Princeton and Columbia. I know Princeton in particular is real picky about location.

Actually, a 1500 SAT doesn't guarantee admissions into prestigious institutions. It definitely helps, but you'd be surprised to find that many Ivies, and highly regarded non-Ivies, like Swarthmore, NYU, Notre Dame, Georgetown, etc, have rejected students with 1500+ SAT scores. You'll see 1500 students rejected, and then someone with a 1350 gets accepted! And vice-versa. So regardless of one's "genius" mind, make sure you stay humble when it comes to the application process.
