Discus: What Are My Chances?: August 2004 Archive: Chances at Stanford
By Jellybean24 (Jellybean24) on Monday, August 23, 2004 - 06:04 pm: Edit

I was wondering your opinion on my chances for EA at Stanford.

My Stats:

State: NC (Raleigh)
GPA: 4.0 unweighted, 4.83 weighted (APs worth 6, Honors - 5)
Rank: 3/325
AP's: 5 US and 5 Euro
Sr Courses: AP Latin, AP Psych, AP Calc, AP English (lit and language), Yearbook
SAT: 1500 (770 v, 730 m)
SAT II: 800 US, 760 Math IC, 760 Writing
Legacies: none (actually, my parents didn't go to college)
Race: White
Other: Will have taken all but one of AP's school offers

Extracurriculars and Awards:
debate (president), yearbook (business manager) - staff won state award for best yearbook, National History Day national finalist, school awards for grades, choir (5 state tour), student council, math team (3rd at division), work as intern at local paper, summer program at a top five university (two A minuses), editor of online student newspaper, weekly volunteer at local food bank

My stats are good, but I feel like they're like everyone elses. Do you think it's better to appear well-rounded or to have a "theme?"

Anything you think that is particularly good or bad about my stats?

definitely to have a theme, and nothing is particularly good or bad, i'd say you have a little less than a 50/50 shot at stanford

Stats are good enough, but it all depends on your essays and other stuff. Another thing is that Stanford recommends IIC in their app.
