Not a crappy score. What does the treasurer of the math club do?

overall, good chances into ivy, but your stats are awesome for top 25. your sciences/math really stand out. good luck!

Eh, apply to a non-hyp ivy or similar (duke, williams, etc) early decision and you'll probably get in, in RD you might get the shaft from a bunch of ivies but probably get into at least a couple good schools, you might actually have a shot at princeton ED, looks 50/50 for that, your EC's are below average, AIME 7 is pretty good, but i'd recommend ED at whichever school you like the most out of princeton, columbia, brown, duke, penn, or williams or amherst if lac's are ok, and you've got a more likely than less likely chance at any of those except princeton which is 50/50 or a little less.

Yeah I didn't include too many EC's cuz I was lazy and I forgot the biggest one because it's so big its like a background EC-just like breathing: Karate-I've been doing it for 9 years and have a 1st degree Black Belt. I go 1-2 days a week for around 2 or 3 hours each day.

Cross Country-10th grade and 12th (is there a place on the application to explain how I couldn't do it in 11th because I took a math class at a university?)
