Chances at Harvard, UPenn, Columbia, and Stanford

Scores 'n Stuff:

GPA: 3.97 uw, 4.88 weighted

EC's:

- 4 years on Varsity Tennis (3 by then)
- Year long internship at National Institute of health doing computer/data analysis work.
- Organized and led a computer camp for underprivileged children during one summer.
- Worked for local Realtor, designed/maintained website.
- Vice President and Co-Founder of Investment Club at my school.

Minor, but maybe crucial stuff:

What the hell is up with this guy. His SAT scores changed over the past day (he suddenly gained 50 points on verbal, and note that there has been no new SAT score released recently). His ECs changed slightly.

From:
"- Organized and led a tennis camp for underprivileged children during one summer."

to a computer camp. And this guy posts this every single day. What is wrong here??

Ok, let me explain. I didn't think it would particularly annoy anyone if I asked for chances multiple times. The SAT score 1490 was my first score, and I want to see my chances with a higher, THEORETICAL verbal score. As for the community service project, that is happening this summer. I am still planning the project. I hope this clears up any confusion or annoyance. By the way, if my assumption that new people would look at my posts (NOT THE SAME PEOPLE) is wrong, then maybe you should think about that fact. Do you enjoy looking at people's chances questions and get annoyed at the same posts? If so, then maybe YOU are taking the message board too seriously. All I want is a diverse set of responses to partially theoretical information, as I am a junior. I don't mean to antagonize anyone. Oh, and by the way, if anyone has any more useful posts/advice, please feel free.

This is the most useful response you will get:

No one here knows anything. You have legacy coming out of your ass. Go do your homework and quit worrying.

GPA: 3.97 uw, 4.88 weighted

How can you get a 4.88? Even with AP classes, it only boosts you up by .6. 4.6 should be the highest possibly gpa.

Juanita, you are a big dumbass! Stop being so narrow minded! People go to different schools with different gpa procedures/weightings. Holyshit, how can you be soo stupid
