I'm currently a sophomore at a small Catholic school in the Northeast and I would like to know what my chances are of getting into Princeton University. I have a 4.0 UW GPA, putting me at first in my class, and my PSAT was 70 English, 69 Math, and 78 Writing (equivalent to 2170), and I plan on bringing each of these up for the real SAT. I'm taking one AP course (school doesn't offer AP to sophomores but they made an exception for my Spanish, even though I don't speak it natively) and plan on taking at least seven more in my Junior and Senior year. I am extremely active in the school's newspaper and have plans for becoming president and refurbishing it in the coming years. I have also won awards for my writing. I am the youngest pioneer of the school's debate team. I am very politically active as well, and have my own blog (with quite a lot of traction) dedicated to politics. Do I have a good shot so far?
