your stats are very impressive and so are your extracurriculars. i believe u have a pretty good chance at all the schools you listed.

thanks for the compliment, but one question
will my ranking hurt me. I think around 12-15 in rank? will that damage my chances or do my other attributes balance it out?
|By bronze68 on Saturday, February 01, 2003 - 06:20 pm: Edit|
I dont think it would because u would still be in the top 5% and most such schools consider qualified students to be atleast in the top 10%.

Thanks bronze... i have one more... is it even important to put common achievements like Who's Who, or even National Honors Society?
|By bronze68 on Saturday, February 01, 2003 - 06:26 pm: Edit|
i dont know about Whos Who, but NHS surely helps- depending on how long u have been in the society and how much u have contributed.
