Do you think I have a shot at these schools?
« on: October 13, 2005, 08:42:34 PM »
I've got 3.43, 163, good WE/Internships/great LORs, good PS.

Ok, I applied to a couple of relative safeties, but I also applied to Fordham, Vandy, Notre Dame ED, USC, W&L, Emory, and Boston College EA.  I'm wondering though, If I wasted my $$$ on these apps... there are soooooo many people with better numbers applying to these schools. Do you honestly think I'll get into at least 1 of these schools?

The reason I ask is that I'm debating casting a wider safety net, but if I have a decent shot at at least one of those schools, I'll just wait until I get a couple of decisions before applying to more safeties...

I had almost your same numbers last cycle, with only a higher GPA. I also had very strong soft factors/extracurrics, WE, recs, PS, internships My results:
Vandy: ding
Fordham: WL ding
ND: WL late spring accept
USC: ding
WandL: WL august ding
Emory: admitted pre-Christmas
BC: ding
Just an FYI - I ended up fine in the end, but I wish I had been slightly more realistic throughout.
