Took a total of 4 AP classes. All that were offered at my school. (5) On Spanish. (4) Human geography. (5) World History. (?-don’t know yet) –Microeconomics. My school also offers a multitude of dual credit classes(don’t know if they are as good as AP)- I have taken 20 dual credit classes and will be taking four more first semester of senior year.
SAT: I feel my sat is not doing too good. (1320/1600) that’s about an 1850/2400.
I feel I did much better on my second try- don’t have scores yet. I Plan to take the ACT on September and my subject sat in October. I plan to take Bio, MathI and Math II (should I do that?) then in December take US history and World History.

    Just work on your SAT and you'll most likely get in. I can't say for sure because I'm not an admission officer. But, make sure to write really good essays.

    I am going to be a Sophomore this year, and I personally think that your chances are good. Obviously, I don't know for sure. I received a similar SAT score, maybe a little better, but not by much (don't remember the exact score). You seem to have a lot of extracurricular, and you took ap classes which is a must. Just make sure that your essay is top notch.
