EA and not all the SAT subject tests.

On the website it says Gtown will still consider you EA if you don't have the three SAT IIs yet. I'm thinking about applying EA this fall, but I have taken only one subject test(US History - 790). Do you think it makes it more significantly more difficult to be accepted EA without all the SAT IIs?

My other stats are not extremely amazing either, and Georgetown is definitely a big reach, so would it be better to just wait for regular decision?

Other Stats if it will help:
I've only taken the SAT once. (Jan 2010)
SAT CR- 680
Math- 720

US History subject test - 790

I took the ACT last weekend, but dont have scores yet.

Taken a lot of APs and honors. I'm basically an all A student.
I'm 14 of 600 at my public high school.
4.8 GPA weighted
3.9 UW

ECs are weak too.
Involved in political and community service clubs at school, and I tutor some kids occasionally.

Its probably just a hopeless cause, but any feedback would be appreciated.

    From their website regarding EA applicants:

    "They should follow the normal application procedure except that the transcript should show three years of high school work, and SAT or ACT scores should be from the junior year. Scores from SAT Subject Tests should be included if available. Please note that the Early Action review is based on information from freshman, sophomore and junior years, so it is not necessary to rush fall subject test scores. Fall scores will be added to an applicant's file if the student is deferred to the regular review. "

    I think those are definitely solid enough scores etc, as long as you are confident in your essays come the end of october I don't see why you shouldn't apply EA if GU is your top choice!
