I really think you have a good shot. What other schools are you looking at?
Well, because I wasn't sure of my chances, I applied to a broad spectrum (all super early):
Penn (early decision)
Chicago, Duke, Virginia, Cornell, Georgetown, UC Berkeley, Ohio State, Penn State, William and Mary.
I was really involved on campus, president of a few orgs, lots of service activities, etc. I feel my diversity statement is good, about my great, great grandmother being born on the Trail of Tears and groing up in a tenuous household.
Any thoughts on these?
