My GPA is within 75-100th range; SAT 50-75th; EC's 75-100th; AP/Honors lower than 25th percent. I put 18 APs and 19 Honors. My chance to get into UPENN is just 7%-12%. The course works are the maximum I can get in our school.
The schools will evaluate you based on what your high school offers. If you take the maximum course load, then you will be fine. However, UPenn is an ivy tier school and so chances of admission are really just luck once you get in that 75%+ range.
