do I have a shot at Stanford?? Other top choices are Columbia, Berkeley, UVA

Thank you!


Very little chance, if any. The only thing that might help is your medical problem - I've seen someone on here overperform due to that. But that really depends on the specifics. None of the other stuff you mentioned will be enough to overcome your 3.39.

If you're not a URM then there's no chance. Or at least I can't find any precedence for an acceptance with that kind of a GPA.

I had the exact same stats as you when I applied OP. I didn't even bother applying to Stanford, chances are basically zero. Same goes with Berkeley. My best advice is just to blanket most of the T14, unless you're ok with paying sticker at UVA, in which case you should ED there and you'd be a lock.

I absolutely loved UVA but decided against EDing there, and ended up waitlisted. In retrospect I'm glad I didn't, since I got in other T14s with $$, so I'd keep the possibility of that in mind when making your decision.

Rate your level of Blackness, Mexican-ness, Puerto Rican-ness, and/or Native American-ness on a scale of 1-10.
Without about a 9 your chances are awful.

No. You have no shot.

On the other hand, you have a good shot at NYU. Maybe Columbia.
