How could you have gotten rejected with such amazing stats.I'm no expert but I definitely think you'll make it into your choice of college.

First of all, Wharton is EXTREMELY hard to get into, especially RD. Also, Chicago is the only school I know of where you have absolutely NO idea whether or not you'll get in. I have a friend who was top of her class and applied there EA and got rejected flat out. I have another friend who was toward the bottom of her class and has bad everything (except the passionate essay) and got in. You never know. It's all in the essay. They're known for taking random kids who they think will fit well into the overly-zealous environment. It does not reflect on you or your ability to get into other fine institutions.

Fret not, y'all...
