Discus: What Are My Chances?: November 2003 Archive: Chances for poor indian boy for Stanford
By Collegeboy123 (Collegeboy123) on Tuesday, November 11, 2003 - 07:08 pm: Edit

Please rate my chances:
I am an Indian boy, whose dad makes $1,000,000+ annually but does not donate at all.

SAT scores: 380V, 490M

SATII's: Writing: 450
Math Ic: 480
Physics: 330

GPA: 2.1UW, 2.1W

No real ECs: I basically sit home and play video games if that counts. O ya, I eat a lot. Maybe that could count as a hobby. Nothing else though.
Can you please rate my chances of acceptance into Stanford? Thanks a lot.

Um, my 5-year-old brother could get better standardized test scores than you...

Sorry about the double post. By the way, are you retarded?

Hey, no im not retarded, I'm just not too smart I guess. I also remembered that I ride my bicycle a lot. Is this a good hobby to have? Please tell me. Are my chances good at all?

this must be a joke haha very funny

By Collegeboy123 (Collegeboy123) on Wednesday, November 12, 2003 - 05:58 pm: Edit

Sorry I didnt reply to you earlier Mjl86, I am in grade 12 and am applying Regular Decision. I really do hope I get in. I have been wanting to attend since my uncle cracked most of his ribs falling down the stairs three years ago and we went to Stanford's hospital. I do feel bad but I was so mesmerized by the beautiful campus that I accidentally slammed the car door shut on his face as he was getting out of the car and then he needed a nose-cast as well.

Dude, your scores are soooo sad. Good luck at trying to get in to a state school. This has got to be a joke! And no, you have absolutely no chance in hell at getting in.

You're just the type of student Stanford is dying to accept.

spyrey-

he's kidding.

By Becks777 (Becks777) on Wednesday, November 12, 2003 - 08:47 pm: Edit

no probs man u r in...stanford loves people who smash thier uncles noses....infact u should write a personal statement about that.....and just lie to them that u were the one who pushed your uncle down the stairs.....that would help a lot too

btw are u the one with a blue t shirt and a pink jeans who keeps staring at the stanford hospital every evening?

By Collegeboy123 (Collegeboy123) on Wednesday, November 12, 2003 - 09:01 pm: Edit

Hey Becks777,
how did you guess who I am? Yes, that's me! I really like my pink jeans! They cost a lot.

By Spyrey (Spyrey) on Wednesday, November 12, 2003 - 09:15 pm: Edit

Okay, while I know that a lot of dumb people joke about going to good schools, you can never be too sure if one of those idiots are really joking or not. Just last year, this girl at my school was so sure that she'd get in to Cornell ED. She was 30th out of 90, had a 1000 SAT, and no legecy or special connection to Cornell at all. She wasn't an athlete or an international student, just an average person. And she still thought that Cornell was a sure thing. Now, looking at the context of this exceedingly sad situation, I can certainly see that this could be a sick joke, or, by the same token, I also recognize that the "dumbass student" archetype is quite evident throughout this thread. Just my 2 cents...

By Spyrey (Spyrey) on Wednesday, November 12, 2003 - 09:25 pm: Edit

Come on guys, lets keep this thread going...I'm having fun.

By Becks777 (Becks777) on Wednesday, November 12, 2003 - 09:33 pm: Edit

How did i know??.......coz i m the one with a pink sweater and a ornage jeans who stares ar the stanford hospital from across the street!!....oh and i wear a hat too....forgot the color of it..hehe

By Bobbyh (Bobbyh) on Wednesday, November 12, 2003 - 09:34 pm: Edit

okay spyrey i really really am not insulting you but this part really gives it away if you weren't sure:

"No real ECs: I basically sit home and play video games if that counts. O ya, I eat a lot. Maybe that could count as a hobby. Nothing else though. "

By Becks777 (Becks777) on Wednesday, November 12, 2003 - 09:35 pm: Edit

i m the one who threw my aunt down from the top floor of the stanford hospital to cath a glimpse of the campus

Ok guys, enough with the games. Yes, this post was a complete travesty. But please do rate my stats at Individual School/Ivy League/Cornell/"Absolutely terrible stats for cornell & uchicago". Or if you dont want to go all the way to that forum, here are my stats, repeated:

Please rate my chances of being admitted into Cornell ED (Arts & Sciences) and UChicago:

My AP scores sorta sucked but I've heard they don't matter that much for admission, but more for placement after admission. (hopefully, this is true) My scores in my classes this year are definitely going to be better, just because of the classes I'm taking.

AP Statistics (5)
AP US History (3)
Ap English Lang. (3)(exam only)

12th grade:
AP Economics (Macro and Micro)
