    Hi intothebreeze,

    I don't really have the authority to say anything credible, since I'm applying this year, but if you haven't read this yet, it might be helpful:

    Scholarships Offer Big Rewards - Fuse - Ithaca College

    It's an article about Ithaca scholarships...your GPA is pretty decent (better than mine, I think!) But your test scores could probably be the biggest factor for the automatic-consideration scholarships. You have a lot of community service...I'm jealous! I would continue to do well in school...retake the SAT to try to get your Math/Critical Reading scores as high as possible. I think you have a good chance.

    Best of luck!

    Thank you! I have actually not taken my sats yet, but my score on the PSATs was a 2000, so I am hoping to do as well on the sats.
