    Question regarding your marks in 11th standard: 58%

    This sounds low to me. What was your estimated class rank?

    Do you need financial aid? If so how much?

    Hi, I am also Indian and according to me, your academics are a bit low but your extra curricular and awards are really really good, i think if you study for the SAT with full determination and get a 1500 or a 1550+ your application can be very catchy moreover, do try to get good letter of recommendations and really work hard on your essays. Best of luck

    You need to find schools in the Southern and midwestern states who would be willing to fund you. Since you are looking for merit and other aid, your chances at the top schools are very diminished.

    EC's don't make up for GPA.
    GPA will be extremely important to the schools. If your GPA is not there, the funding will not be there and you will be paying full fees.

    While applying you can send an addtional letter of recommendation either from Lokesh Chugh or Jyoti of Uthan. If you get a top-notch recommendation showcasing your leadership qualities and CS skills, you may increase your chances. Not garaunteed though.
