Chances of Getting into Columbia-Low SAT High SAT IIHigh GPA High APs
I am just wondering realistically what my chances are for getting into a top university. I plan on majoring in physics and doing a pre-med program.
I have taken the SAT's twice. My scores are:
Critical Reading: 610 (very low)
Mathematics: 790 (high)
Writing: 670 (low)
Total Score: 2070
I have taken 4 SAT II Subject Tests:
Mathematics II: 800
US History: 750
World History: 690
Throughout high school, I have taken the most difficult courses my school has to offer. Here are the AP's and my scores
AP World History: 4
AP English Language: 5
AP Calculus BC: 5 -I took AB in school, did BC on my own. I did precalculus over the summer before junior year
AP Physics B:5
AP Statistics: 5
AP US History: 5
AP Physics C Kinematics: 5 (self-study)
AP Physics C Electricity and Magnetism: 5 (self-study)
AP US Government and Politics: 5 (self-study)
AP European History
AP Music Theory (self-study)
Italian: (I've done all 4 years)
Band: (I've done all 4 years)
Debate: (I've done all 4 years)
My grade is extremely competitive (Class of 2013) at my school. I have gotten salutadictorian (probably losing by a very small margin)
Weighted GPA: 100.537
Unweighted GPA: 98.24
Boy Scout: Senior Patrol Leader and Eagle Scout Candidate
Varsity Swimming: (All 4 years)
Varsity Track and Field: (Every year except Junior year)
Debate -did not to too well
Vice President and co-founder of a non-profit organization
I'm very involved with music: Trombone in band and jazz band. Guitar.
I have many more, but those are the extracurriculars I have been most active in.
I am a white male from New York.
My reach colleges are Columbia and Stanford Universities. If they are out of reach, somebody please bring me to the realization that I cannot make it to these universities and tell me that need to look elsewhere. Give me a list of some colleges that I should be looking at.
Because I am going for Physics and pre medicine, will they look less upon the critical reading and writing scores and possibly consider that my AP English score was high. Can I capitalize on my AP's to increase my chances for acceptance?
