Discus: What Are My Chances?: August 2004 Archive: You tell me where...
By Shuffman654 (Shuffman654) on Saturday, August 14, 2004 - 10:18 pm: Edit

I'm going to be a senior this year. I am beginning to decide where I'm going to submit applications and would like for you all to tell me where you think I have chances of getting in to. I would like to around the Mid-Atlantic region. I've recently been looking at The College of William and Mary but I'm not sure of my chances. Please just give me a list of schools that are in my range with my stats. I would like to go to a prestigious school. I'm not narrow-minded in my search, but I want a GOOD school. Here are my stats...

White Middle Class Male
Rural West Virginia
ACT: 30 (m33, e28, s30, r30) (SAT really isn’t popular here. All emphasis is put of ACT. Does this matter on admission since they accept both?)
GPA: 3.97 uw (end of jr year. will go up)
Rank: 6/128 (middle of junior year…moved up at the end of the year. Not exactly sure where…probably top 3)
I’ve taken all honors classes and every math class offered...AP Calc next year. I have many math and soc. Studies classes…civics, economics, law, world history, us history, 20th century history.
