Hello everyone! I'm an American student and I'm applying to Oxford University - New College for History and Economics this year. Is it likely that I will receive an offer for an interview from Oxford in December with these Advanced Placement and SAT grades? I am also applying to LSE, UCL, Durham, and Edinburgh for Mathematics and Economics. How likely is it that I will be accepted to them?

SAT Reasoning Test:

700 Mathematics
740 Critical Reading
760 Writing
2200 Total

SAT Subject Test:
740 Mathematics Level II
740 United States History

Advanced Placement:
AP World History - 5
AP United States History - 5
AP Calculus BC - 5
AP French Language and Culture - 5
AP European History - predicted 5
AP Statistics - predicted 5
AP Macroeconomics and Microeconomics - predicted 5
Multivariable Calculus (not Advanced Placement, but is a college level class)

You could definitely get an interview at Oxford. Your AP scores are good as are your SATs. You fit all the criteria in terms of US grades:

http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/under...e-requirements (scroll to the bottom for US qualifications).

What will be a major deciding factor is how you perform in the History Aptitude Test (HAT). If you do really well in that, then it will be much more likely that Oxford will give you an interview then offer you a place.

In terms of for the other universities your grades are definitely fine. A good personal statement and reference and you should hopefully get offers from them!
