I'm applying to CAS, and Boston University is my top school. I honestly don't know what my chances are because i have such a low SAT score but a lot of extra curriculars and a high GPA.

SAT: (CR+M) 1080...extremely low i know =/
GPA: 3.8 (2 Honors and 1 AP)
Top 25% in my class at a private school (passing grade at the school is 75)
SAT IIs: Math I 560; Spanish 770
Extra Curricular: there's ALOT, both in and out of school and include volunteer work, community service and sports.
Awards: Award for Academic Excellence ( 3 years in a row)

The only thing bringing my chances down are my SAT scores. I'm just not a good test taker and i really don't know what my chances at BU are. Let me know, Thanks!

    Your stats are basically the same as mine and I applied Early Decision and got deferred.
    You asked for the truth and I am going to give you the truth...

    If I got higher SAT's and better SAT II's and I got deferred, your chances are quite low. Apply to safety and match schools.
