    You definitely have a chance. Try to get your SAT score up, I don't know if colleges will forgive a lower cr/writing score because I'm assuming English is not your antive language if you come from Ukriane. Another thing I would recommend is not taking three SAT 2's in one day. You only need two for Columbia, and your Ic score is great as it is. I would recommend taking Bio and Lit in october and the SAT I in november. If you really feel you should take the IIC, you can do it in December and i think you'll still have time. Your school gives grades out of 97? that's different. Do you know your approximate class rank (the percentage) because I really don't know how to judge your gpa... Your ecs are pretty good... not much leadership, but the ball room dancing is quite unique. your community service is also fairly notable. I think now you have a good chance (at least as good a chance as anyone) but it's all so unoredicatble that I really wouln't take these replies too seriously. Good luck!
