wow, you have great stats. Where will you apply ED? Personally, I am applying to Hopkins-I'm from out of state, FLORIDA! Generally, I think you have a good shot at all of your schools-- maybe I'll see you at JH!!

thanks for the reply! I'm not sure about ED yet...The thing with JH is that I'm so familiar with it all ready- I'm thinking of branching out and hoping to experience some more of the east coast. If I get in I'll still be happy though, hehe.

the skools you applied to are VERY GOOD skools. They are also VERY hard to get into for ANYONE. so i agree your stats rock my world. you will definately get into NYU and UM, but the rest only God knows. They all reject valedictorians on a regular basis. Your essay will have to be GREAT, your recs will have to be AWESOME. And you MUST interview. i think they all might take you, but like i said only God knows. you also NEED more safety skools (i had like 4 of them). please get more safeties!

I applied to 13 skools last year and it was HELL on earth. my tip to you start applying NOW to the skools you just mentioned while you look for safeties. that will help you so much in senior year b/c you will have most of your sh** already done.
