Hi. I'll be a rising senior this year, and I am very anxious and stressed about what colleges I should apply to. There are my stats:

SAT 1: 1310 first time
1220 second time
(Do i have to submit both scores?)
Planning to take 3rd time and hopefully
over 1400

SAT 2: None yet

GPA: 3.9 UW
Rank: 10/200

Too long... alot of shizt
But highlights:

Performed at Carnegie Hall.
Chair Violist in school chamber orchestra.
Best Artist of the year
Math team
Beta club
Rogue jobs. (international)

No sports :(

My choices:
Illinois Institue of Tech
Boston U
Carnegie Mellon
Brandeis U
Vanderbilt U
UT-Austin (because it's cheap)

Thx! (if anyone puts any input)

If you get over a 1400 they are all attainable. If you don't get a 1400 chances are some schools will be out of reach.

If you don't get a 1400 I would rule out University of Chicago and WUSTL.

Other then that lookin pretty darn solid so good luck.

Carnegie Mellon is no shoe-in either, especially for computer science, but you still have a decent shot.
