    You'll get in, don't stress.

    I'm starting at NU this year, and you blow me out of the water with scores. I played football and track for 4 years, did some clubs, got an 1800 SAT (610CR 610 Writing 580 Math) had an alright GPA (My HS did it weird so I won't even bother trying to convert it), and I did a summer program at NU called the Young Scholars Program (check it out, might only be for HS juniors but I'm not sure).

    You're pretty much set, unless something crazy happens you're bound to get in.
