I'm a NJ resident applying for Fall 2014 as a Comm Studies major. I won't be applying ED.

Academics-
4.1 W GPA, 1320 SAT I (700 CR/620 M) (Retaking in Oct., hopefully will score 1400+)
SAT II's- 730 Lit, 630 USH
All Honors classes except math/science, advanced Spanish.
AP's: 11th: Env. Sci., USH-Not planning on submitting these scores
12th: Spanish, Lang/Comp, Euro, Statistics
National Spanish Honor Society member, honorable mention on National Spanish Exam.
Achieved some level of Honor roll each year.
I go to a prep school.

EC's-
Dance: 12+ hrs/week, all 4 years. Very involved but no significant honors/awards.
Photography Club: Member all 4 yrs, VP this coming year. The club doesn't do too much but I do it as a hobby a lot and my photos get put up at school.
Choir: 11th-12th grade, with school
Theater: Doing the play this year as dance ensemble member
Journalism:Writing for school newspaper as part of Journ/Media class this year. I applied to be a "HS Ambassador" for hercampus.com, so hopefully I'll be able to add that in.

Also- if it looks like I'll probably get in, do you think I have a shot at any merit scholarships? My family has a high EFC (40k) but my parents really won't be able to scrape up more than 20k at the absolute most, what with my brother going through private school and paying off the house, and they're not exactly willing to take out any loans. TCNJ was a safety in my mind until I actually looked at their stats. If it looks like I might not get in or get any merit I'm not sure I'll apply and I'll look for a cheaper state school. I like TCNJ but if I'm not going to get merit it might be a waste of an app fee.

Thanks!
