I am currently a senior at Phillips Exeter and I was wondering what my chances are at the top schools:

SAT: 1550
APs: Chemistry (5)
BC-Calc (5)
Physics (5)
Statistics
European History
Biology

EC: Head of Debate Team
Head of Model UN
Member of African-Latin American Union (I'm neither though)
One of the top Trumpets in Band
Member of Orchestra

Community Service: 150 hours

Please give me some feedback and also if I should tweak anything

Why are you asking anyone here? Your school probably has guidance counselors who know more than anyone who posts here. Tell us what they think!!

So far I've gotten mixed responses. I have been told my chances are good, but not awesome.....I just wanted to know what REAL college students thought, or other students in general.

I think you have a pretty good chance.

Your stats and ECs are good but not great.

When you get to college, work harder and participate more. *Then* transfer to a real school from community college.

You're kidding, right Slackur? You really think I'm only good enough for community college?

GPA?

By harvardbound? on Wednesday, January 15, 2003 - 04:58 pm: Edit

Grades here are out of a scale of 6, with 6 being EXTREMELY and RIDICULOUSLY difficult to get (like an A++++ or something), especially in English classes. Out of the 6 scale I have a 5.5.

They're BSing. With strong recs and essays, you have a great shot. Not taking an AP humanities class could hurt you a little though...

harvardbound does NOT go to exeter...i am a 3-year upper there, and the grading scale is 11 points, with 11 being an A, not 6 as harvardbound claimed in his post.
