I'm thinking my SAT should go above 1900, ACT to around 30, and GPA to around 3.75 or 3.8. Take into consideration that I'm at a very competitive, private, college prep school. Lastly, I am applying for a Cellular/Molecular Biology Major which should correlate well with my 800 and 5 that you saw above. Thanks!
