I was just hoping someone could tell me what they thought my chances are at Georgetown. I've applied to Villanova, Fordham, Buffalo (safety), and American also. I know these schools I'm likely to get into but I was wondering how much of a reach Georgetown is for me.

SAT I - 700v 700m
SAT II - History 760 MathIC 760 Writing 760
Rank - 1/145
GPA 97.5 / 100 unweighted 104.8/105 weighted

AP History 5
Currently taking - AP Calc, AP English, SUPA (honors course through Syracuse)
My school only offers 4 AP classes and I've taken 3 along with all the honors possible.

Extracurricular:
-Mathletes New York State champion
-VP of senior class
-NHS
-Mock Trial
-Peer Leadership
-Captain of soccer and volleyball
-President of Spirit Club
-Student Council officer

Volunteer:
-Preschool Volunteer
-Nursing Home Volunteer
(Very scattered volunteer activites and hours)

Pretty good rec/average to good essay

I think your chances are very good. Your GPA is great, SAT 2 scores too. Your SAT I scores are probably average for a place as selective as Georgetown, but I think your other qualities-especially being a state champion-will make up for them.

I got into Gtown with a 1400 (I think they only saw my old score even though I sent in my new one) so it's not like you won't get in because of your board scores. Check out the Gtown thread to see stats of others who got in.
