    Hey I think you have a chance ONLY if you sound interesting to the college. Talk about what interests you and what makes YOU unique. Discuss accomplishments you achieved. Oh and do great on SATs lol

    Not likely unless your GPA in your US school is at the very top of your class (top 3), and even then the lack of calculus level of math is going to really hurt you. You may have some very interesting non-Ivy choices though, and Ivy league is not the only way to get a great education! Alternatively you could do an extra year of US post-high school, but I don't think that is worth your time and effort, better to have a bunch of college options.
