Korean-American student at a pretty well known public high school in Northern New Jersey.

SAT I: 1360 (Dual 680s)
SAT IIs: 750 Writing 730 M2C, 560 Physics (HAH)

Rank: 2nd Decile (around top 15%)

AP Tests: USHistory - 4

Senior Schedule & First Quarter Grade
AP Advanced Biology
AP Calculus AB
AP English Literature
AP Latin
AP Psychology
Chamber Orchestra

Have a bunch of community services activities through music. Study at Manhattan School of Music, Concertmaster of school orchestra, volunteered at local hospital around 150 hours, currently an intern at Asperger Related Services (60 hours), and participated in my senior high youth group's mission trip to lepan, mexico (10th and 11th grade). Eh..what else, sending in a CD of my playing (it's decent).

So, what are my chances at UMich, NYU, BC, and Rutgers?

Intended major is psychology.

Thanks for any input.

Well you're definitely in at rutgers, umich, and nyu. i think u have a good/high chance at bc. btw, what part of northern jersey do you live in?

By K516 (K516) on Sunday, November 23, 2003 - 11:34 pm: Edit

bergen, bump

I wouldn't say you're definitely in at NYU nor UMich, your stats are not all that impressive for out-of-staters at Mich and for NYU, your stats are the same as the common applicant's.

By Dewey (Dewey) on Monday, November 24, 2003 - 03:58 pm: Edit

I live in bergen too

bah, help me please :D

By Hnbui (Hnbui) on Tuesday, November 25, 2003 - 11:21 am: Edit

you stats are great. I mean you are in the 1300+ so you have high scores for any of the scholls above. You stats are way higher than the U Mich normal applicants. don't let any of these people dicourage you. the only thing i would work on is that physics sat score.

By K516 (K516) on Tuesday, November 25, 2003 - 10:19 pm: Edit

thanks hnbui. bump

By Hnbui (Hnbui) on Tuesday, November 25, 2003 - 11:01 pm: Edit

np, i just hate it when people on this board discourage others. Others whom i might say have a great chance of getting into selective schools.

"i just hate it when people on this board discourage others"

Then do u think it's right to lie instead of telling them the truth?? Being honest is better than lying to people just to encourage them

By K516 (K516) on Thursday, November 27, 2003 - 11:41 am: Edit

hm, what's your op hertish?

By Vulcano (Vulcano) on Thursday, November 27, 2003 - 12:37 pm: Edit

"I mean you are in the 1300+ so you have high scores for any of the scholls above."

Not for Michigan out-of-state students. Your scores are higher than the school's average, but that average is composed mainly of in-state students. Michigan is a hard bet, as is NYU. The others shouldnt be much of a problem.

By Hnbui (Hnbui) on Thursday, November 27, 2003 - 02:22 pm: Edit

here try this website. http://www.michiganreview.com/admissions2.php

That was a calculator used a while ago to determinied if you were going to be accepted to michigan or not.

And Vulcano, yes out of state students have more competetion, but if you are appling from an underrepresented state then you also have a higher chance.
And as for hertish, where did you get the idea that lieing is better than stating the truth from my post. All i said was that i hate when people discourage others who have a good to great chance of getting in. In trying to argue with me you somehow forgot the second half of my post. Please do not be so elementary.

By K516 (K516) on Thursday, November 27, 2003 - 05:16 pm: Edit

anybody else?

By Hnbui (Hnbui) on Saturday, November 29, 2003 - 12:04 am: Edit

oh yea, for the calculator above. If you made a 100 or above, then you were admitted.
