First off, I understand it's a reach.

Junior Year:

Accounting (Only one level available)

Senior Year:
Honors Calculus
Honors Broadcast Journalism (part of #1 HS Newscast in the country, show broadcasts to entire school and town, rigorous and requires more "real world" skills and professionalism so I figured this could be a pull for business schools)

Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen Award
Selected as student representative by school principal for 2015 NASSP Breaking Ranks Showcase in San Diego, CA

Extremely good recommendations and essays (from what I am told)

I'm definitely at the lower end of the applicant pool in terms of numbers, but I know that I have the ambition, "real world" experience and more personal qualities to succeed at the school. Will I get a chance to prove this to AdComs given my less-than-competitive scores, etc?
