Does being a permanent resident and being born in Argentina (in South America)help ur chances at Stanford?

You have a good shot at UMich but you could raise your chances by raising your verbal score

Peacemakeriv- I think that you will definitely get into UMICH and Cornell Engineering (no sweat). Princeton is not a reach for you but a little harder. Who cares though? You are good enough to get into those other schools. I wish you good luck. Hey, you never know. People on these kinds of posts have been wrong. You might get into Princeton (no problem).

Princeton not a reach? It's a reach for anyone. Sure people have been wrong (and trust me, I know), but no one can deny that it's a crapshoot, as all top schools are. Peacemakeriv, I think you're looking great for UMich and Cornell... the other three, just wait and see, I guess :) .
