wow, youre in really good shape for some great schools.

your grades look awesome, and your standardized test scores should put you in the running for schools like UPenn, Cornell, Brown, Berkeley, UCLA, Northwestern, JHU etc (although they will all be reaches unless youre in cali in which case UCLA and berk are matches) all depends where you want to go and what you want to do. The colleges listed are all medium to large size, but if you prefer a smaller campus consider LACs like Carleton, Harvey Mudd, Pomona, Williams (I can see by your SAT II scores you probaby want to do something science/math related and these are the liberal arts colleges typically associated with those majors)--again those LACs were reaches.

As far as safeties go you can have your pick of the lot from Brandeis to UCSD to USC....

You really need to give us something to go off of instead of just asking colleges to reccomend for you. What schools have you looked at?

Also, what's this "post your stats" business? Do you want to know what colleges we're applying to and what our stats are? Sorry, I hope I wasn't the only one confused by this.

thanks for really does mean a lot to me.

i think that i am on the math/science route and i prefer big campuses. actually, i prefer any school with a big name (just wanna make the parents proud)........

i have looked at a few colleges because i think that i dont have a chance at the ones i want for some reason. i really want UCLA or Berkeley. Brown Cornel Dartmouth would be nice too.....i realllyyy want NYU...but i dont seem to trust the stats on princeton and stuff because they are all "averages"---that means they include the people with connections or the music or sports majors that really didnt do good in school.

i meant "post ur stats" as in......i was trying to make a message board where poeple like me could post their stats too to get comments from others, no need to take it in the wrong way. i only had good intentions...

thanks again

i didnt take it in a negative, way i just wasnt sure what it meant. I honestly think you won't have a problem getting into NYU, its a great match for you!...the only thing that throws their mid SAT score off is the caliber of applicants accepted to Stern school of business, and since you want math/science stuff it won't be a problem with your scores and grades.

Although don't take what I say to heart, because I'm far from an expert....actually just a kid with stats pretty similar to yours (1450 SATs).

Best of luck to you
