I am currently a senior at Phillips Exeter and I was wondering what my chances are at the top schools:
APs: Chemistry (5)
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?

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...

YOU GO TO EXETER, dont you know you go to one of the most prestigious private prep schools in the nation. You prolly got connections, prolly 40% of your class is goin to the IVY League schools. Why do you post this trash?

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.
