Hi, I am a junior taking all classes at the University of minnesota. I'm in the IT honors program so I am like a honors freshman there. I have EC's like Math Team, AMC, AIME qualifier(little test things for math), Debate state champ in novice, a bit of volunteering, participating in cultural events, bpa national finalist, deca state finalist, gpa 3.9 unweighted, 4.2 weighted, my school does not weight ANY U of M credits so that will probably drop. Used to tutor at local elementary school, thinking of research soon, Psat 230, hoping for high scores on SAT's, act 34 but it didnt count for schools outside of minnesota. participant in youth government in the city, play tennis for fun. Should I stay at the U of M or do I have a chance at the ivy's? Any comments would be helpful. Thanks!

I agree, try your best on the SATs (from your PSAT score you look like you are in great shape) and take some SAT IIs if you haven't already. Ivies such as Cornell are seemingly in reach for you. Good luck!
