I know I've already posted here before, but now that college seems so close, I need some final recommendations...
My stats are here: http://www.prstats.com/2008/display.php?user=thomasthehunk
For the ED/EA round, I was wondering if I had ANY chance at all for either Stanford or Princeton. While Princeton is binding ED (increasing chances), I am a legacy at Stanford (dad went there for graduate school... but doesn't donate). Do I have any chance at all for either one of those schools???? I like both equally and have no preference of one or the other.
On the other hand... if I have no chance at those schools at all... should I not "waste" my ED and apply to a more realistic schools??
Also, would the following schools be realistic for the RD round???
UC Berkeley (out of state)
Carnegie Mellon (?)
Sorry for the long post... and as always, THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!!!!
(gosh... I'm gonna be a senior ~silly grin~)

Do you have SAT 2's?...I didn't see them listed. If those are in order, then I'd say it wouldn't be a waste to apply to Princeton or Standford ED/EA....You're not going to be one of the best candidates they see, but you're definitely a very solid candidate, and since it's such a crapshoot at those schools for anyone, it definitely doesn't hurt to apply. And, considering you're a legacy at Stanford, that should definitely score you a few points and help you stand out a little.

Thanks!! Do I count as a legacy even though my dad only attended GRADUATE school there??? Also... do I have a chance at Cooper Union engineering??? Thanks!!

for caltech, your gonna need to retake that math score on the SAT for sure. honestly, if you got in, i think you would probably have THE lowest SAT1 math score of anyone there. pick a school you really like and ED/EA there. with my 660writing i dont think i have a chance at amherst, but ill ED there. just do what you want. so what if you dont get in, you didnt "waste" your ED/EA, you used it to get your first choice out of the way; now you can focus on the rest of the spectrum of schools. best of luck.

Carnegie Mellon's not a reach for you....just thought I'd clear that up from Chrisy's list. And the "reach/match" schools on her list are, in my opinion, more reaches than matches, but you still have a chance at them, for sure.

your sat math is below the 50% for carnegie mellon.
hammertime- you know it's funny because most people on cc think i'm too pessimistic.

i have to admit though, carnegie mellon is a close call, it could be a match.

I would definitely apply early to either Princeton or Stanford (whichever is your personal preference) early decision. Your stats qualify you to apply to these schools and you are from Oregon (I'm assuming that since you did work at Oregon State.)
I agree with your other choices. Might also include some more safety schools just in case.

Hey--Thanks to everyone who's responded! BTW, I'll be applying to college from Arizona (we moved this summer).
I was originally wondering, mainly, which school I would have a better chance at E.D. Stanford or Princeton. So would being a kinda legacy give me a bigger edge, or ED at Princeton vs. EA at Stanford.
Again... thanks a ton for your responses! They've been very helpful!1
