Discus: What Are My Chances?: December 2002 Archive: Harvard RD
By jello on Friday, December 20, 2002 - 07:20 pm: Edit

hi, i have 1490 sat, 760 average SAT II and am planning on applying to harvard RD. Pretty fair grades, taking college math courses. Is it worth the money to apply to harvard rd? or is it just so ridiculously impossible that i should just keep my 60 bucks?

no way. go for it. don't know about your EC's, but your scores are fine.

you're in range, that's for sure... just how fair are your grades?

yea, do the whole HYPSM thing and pray you get into one, chances look pretty good right now but then again, my word means virtually nothing. good luck.

Quite.... definitely go for the HYPSMC pool and pray (as praying is necessary for all!)

btw... what do people make as C- Caltech I thought, but apparently Columbia from some

Columbia.
Because Columbia is Ivy and Caltech isn't.

I think C is sometimes Caltech when taken in context, and also because Caltech is extremely selective.

Seeker, intrigued to know more about you, gathered you got 1590, 800x3, v. impressive. Where are you now, at Wharton? I also noticed you said you were an int. student, would that be from the UK, which school etc...

ok, stanford + MIT aren't ivies either???

so could be top 3 ivies, top 3 non-ivies? not that it really matters. I vaguely meant Caltech
