    It’s all about the numbers. Class rank, SAT and date of your app. The dilemma for you is going to be whether you trade the earliest possible app date for a chance of a higher SAT score. You should check with your GC and look at Naviance to see where someone with your numbers stands in getting accepted to PSU.

    What major? I'd say try your hand at the ACT to see if you score higher there. Is that GPA weighted or unweighted? Make sure you have a solid personal statement/essay. Overall, it's a toss up, you obviously have improvement which they like to see, and people with lower stats have been admitted. I'd say apply DUS, and early. Good luck!

    Have you taken all three from Bio,chem, physics? Do you have level 3 or 4 in a foreign language or is the Korean subject test supposed to replace that?
    No science, no foreign language, and only 1/2 social scienxe?, Total 4 academic classes=light.
