So, it's that time of year again where people start to receive college acceptances...and I've received a few myself. :D Here's a few stats about myself and where I've been accepted.

ACT: 36 (36 M, 36 S, 35 R, 35 E, 12W)
SAT Subjects: Chemistry 800, Physics 780, Math 2 800
Unweighted GPA: 3.98 (Weighted: 4.4)
Class Rank: 2/411
AP's: Chemistry (5), Physics B (5), Calc AB and BC (5's), Statistics (5), English Language (4), US History (3)
Current AP's: Biology, Physics C's, US Government, English Literature
Sports: Varsity tennis, JV soccer and cross country.
I am also a Junior graduating early but I don't know if that helped me or not :)

With these stats I was accepted into Michigan, Purdue, Caltech, and most importantly MIT! :D (I'm eagerly awaiting my tube)

Where have all you seniors out there applied/gotten in? :)

Congrats on getting into all of those schools! Do you know what you want to study? Sounds like you'll fit in at MIT since you are on this forum :)

Back in my day I applied for the University of Illinois and got in. Didn't really have an interest in going anywhere else at the time. I probably would have enjoyed MIT, but there was no way I could get in unless I invented something crazy or had something that made me stand out because my grades and test scores were certainly not MIT material. That said, UIUC probably had a better food science program anyway :)

MIT sounds great!

I'm looking at majoring in Mechanical Engineering, with Material Sciences being my second choice.

Straight out of high-school, I got accepted to North Carolina State University's College of Engineering in Computer Science. Flunked-out my freshman year, got a few associates degrees from College of the Albemarle, and was readmitted to NCSU this past semester. Hoping I can finish my BS in Computer Science before my Sponsor cuts me off.

You're lucky you get to go to DCD easily I had to take 4 trains (and 4 more to come back) :P

I got accepted 6 months ago to the Technological University of Belfort-Montbéliard to study 3D design and mechanics (who would've guessed ? :lol: )

My grades aren't the same as in the US because it's stricter here and not the same grading so I had 13.87/20 at the bacchalaureate which isn't bad :)
