    I figured I could help out since I have very comparable stats. I had about the same GPA, a 1480/1600 on the SAT, same upwards trend, similar AP courseload, lots of extracurriculars, and what I believe helped me the most was really strong essays:
    I got into Bentley with a 1/2 tuition presidential merit scholarship

    I got waitlisted from UMich OOS (also figured I'd let you know that my sister goes there, and had a grandparent attend but even that couldn't get me in)

    I also had two friends apply to BU, one of which was waitlisted with a 3.8 GPA and 33 ACT and the other was recruited for a sports team and got in with a 3.35 GPA and 1100 SAT (Needless to say the first friend was annoyed at the second friend)
