I feel like I've got my application strategy down, but my Notre Dame (dream school) rejection and SMU deferral seriously bruised my ego and have made me uneasy about college apps. I decided that NYU Stern was a good ED2 considering my stats and EC business background, and since I am in the green for my school's historically good NYU ED acceptance rate. I also feel pretty good since I am relatively top-right for applications.
I've been seriously considering IU Kelley b/c it's my worst-case-scenario school from here on out. Hopefully, I get into some more. Any tips, advice, experience at any of these, chanceme's? Also, goal is IB.
