Discus: What Are My Chances?: August 2004 Archive: California schools, Wash U, Vandy
By 2005 (2005) on Monday, August 23, 2004 - 09:35 pm: Edit

Hi all,

I'm a white male in a midwestern city. Any thoughts on my list would be appreciated.

Quick stats:
3.89 unweighted
4.30 weighted
Ranked at about 5th percent of my class

1520 SAT I (780 V 740 M) only took once
SAT II Physics 720 with two more in Oct
5 APs as a junior earned a 5 for each test
taking 5 more APs this year

Varsity Debate, Chess championships, over 100 hours of community service annually for 4 years such as Habitat, and science-related activities. Work as an umpire, play high school soccer (not varsity) as well some intramurals.
Strong recommendations from counselor and teachers.

I am undecided about a major, but love physics. I am comsidering getting an MBA someday. Also starting my own business in the future would not be out of the question.

Core six:
Stanford
UCLA, UCSD and UCSB
USC
Wash U-St Louis
Vanderbilt
Colorado-Boulder

Great list of schools. I see it breaking down this way:

Reaches: Stanford
reach/match: UCLA
mAtches: UCSD, Wash U, Vanderbilt
Safeties: USC, Colorado, UCSB

Good luck!

USC a safety? That's laughable.

WashU a match is just as laughable
