SATs: fine
Grades/GPA: Excellent
ECs: not bad. But could be A LOT better (just take a look @ what some other ppl on this forum posted up, for example...).

I might say that you have a good shot @ MIT, but you dont seem to have much of a technical background. My friend got rejected because he didnt have a very techy background. Then again, what do i know? Not much; I'm just telling you all I know, so you draw the inferences.....

You're in for Berkeley

he wants to do business.

so just getting into berkeley is not enough, he has to get into HAAS, which is quite competitive.

But HAAS is one of the best undergraduate business programs BY FAR.
