I am South Korean, and I came here about three years ago.
I got 2 recommendations from my IB bio teacher, and AP calc AB teacher from last year.They filled two pages with their awesome words, and my counselor wrote awesome recommendations. My english teacher said my essays couldn't be any better.

I'm really nervous right now. I don't know what to do, and if you guys can rate my chances, it couldn't be more helpful.

You have outstanding stats. If Johns Hopkins was your dream school, why didn't you apply Early Decision? They accept over 50% ED.

Here's my opinion...
Johns Hopkins- Accept
UVA- Accept
Georgetown- Accept
Brown- Accept
Yale- Waitlist/Accept---too hard to tell

3.94 uw and only 4.065 weighted? So how many honors classes did you take? obviously not much. But your ec's are really good. Good luck!
