    to which school are you applying?

    I had similar stats (93/100, 1280/2020, summer homestay in Japan, some volunteer-work) and was accepted into the School of Management '11 on an admittedly poor secondary essay. I wrote it for the sake of writing it, frustrated I didn't make my first choice, but realize now that I barely made the school given the stats of the entering class of '11.

    I would say you have a fairly good chance.

    Good SAT scores. As I stated before in other threads, BU wants good SAT/ACT scores and you definately are higher than their 50%.

    I say you get in. :) Good luck.

    You have good GPA which is the most important thing to BU(more important than SAT). Beside you have good ECs, good SAT scores and applying to CAS. I would say you are def. in.
