What are my chances of getting into an ivy league school?

I'm a junior in high school. I have a pretty decent GPA and I have all A's. I've done a tone of program like internships abroad at hospitals and labs and I'm currently doing a leadership program with Princeton and a mentor-ship program with a pharmaceutical company called Novartis. I'm in 5 clubs and I hold leadership positions in 3 and will be holding leadership in all 5 next year. I currently take 3 AP classes and I probably will take 5 next year. I still haven't taken my SATs but my PSAT score was a 1440. I want to major in bioengineering or biomedical engineering. So does anyone know my chances? #college #college-admissions #college-selection #ivy-league

Thank you comment icon Well it depends on which ivy league school you're applying to. I think most people would agree that some ivy leagues are easier to get into than others. Generally or an Ivy league school I'd say a 95+ cumulative GPA and a 1500+ SAT score would definitely get you considered for admission. Of course, there are tons of kids with high GPAs and sat scores, so from then on, you'd have to depend on a shining essay and your extracurriculars, which you appear to have. I think you still need to make yourself stand out more though, Ivy league schools have a ton of competition. My friends who were admitted to ivy leagues are either all nationals in some form of musical art or are siemens or intel semifinalists. Caleb

The SAT's will be extremely important for you. As these get held to a high standard by the Ivy leagues. But, otherwise, that resume looks awesome. Being so involved in extra-curriculars while also having great grades, is exactly what IVy leagues are looking for. Also, where you are from could have an impact. If you are from say the northeast, you might stack up more favorably with Harvard, princeton, penn etc, as you would say stanford.

1, IVY requirement for students, not just how much scores but from "applying for the students' comprehensive quality, for the students' qualities, belong to our objects, to be accepted by the applicant can bring me first how fresh air, the applicant may make how dedication" to the society after graduation to consider many aspects, such as;

2. Generally speaking, the admission requirements are divided into two parts:

1) first, measurable achievements, such as high school grades, toefl, SAT scores, etc. High school grades are at least GPA3.5 (about 85 points). High school graduation, toefl should be more than 100 points, over SAT2200. IVY's acceptance rate hovers around 10%, and if you have the above, you can really enter the competition.



2) the other part of the admissions requirement is the "soft condition". The most important question is to let the school know exactly how the applicant is different from other people. What's more, if they are accepted by these elite universities, they will contribute to these schools or society after graduation. There are some "soft conditions" that can be used in unusual talent, such as drawing, playing piano, etc., for example: zhou X

(toefl 102, SAT2240,GPA 3.7), in the application, the use of the form of cartoon to tell the life of the day, left a deep impression to AO's teachers, and smoothly accepted by IVY." Talent "can't just be, but must be refined -- because from the depth of talent, you can see the students' perseverance and enthusiasm for life, which is what the school is looking for. Can also is through social activities, club activities is an applicant can show leadership potential, also can be reflected and want to contribute to the understanding of the human suffering volunteer activities, such as have a yellow Y classmates, in addition to maintain excellent academic performance, and the rich social practice experience, resume internship experience alone wrote 2 pages of A4 paper, she is very good use of these experiences and gain enlightenment and implications for school presents a rich applicants, such applicant granted is appreciated by IVY.

3. For students who are already in high school in the United States, the advantages are much higher than those in high school in China. If possible, in high School to go to the right School Summer School also is very good opportunity, into the Summer School study, not only can learn more about the School, it is also possible to make schools more in-depth understanding of the applicant.
