    I also think that you have a very good chance for admission.

    Your stats are really similar to mine, and maybe even better. However, I don't think that's what they're going to be looking at if you're transfering from another college. It'll be your grades at the college you'll be attending that's most important to them, so don't slack off. :P

    I just checked the site, and the application for the spring of '06 is now available online. http://www.admissions.neu.edu/onlineapps.html

    Good luck!

    Hi, I am a Senior and I have looked heavily into Northeastern. Neither of my parents went to college (blue collar) and I am Caucasian. I go to a public school also, and I want to major in political science or pre-law.

    SAT I:
    Overall-1990
    Math-610 (yeah, I know....going to attempt and raise it)
    Verbal-710
    Writing-670

    SAT II:
    Literature-540 (have no clue what happened there...going to retake it)
    U.S. History-630 (also retaking it-a tad disappointing)
    Math II-610

    AP History: 3

    GPA-3.8-3.9 (unsure as of now)
    Class Rank (6/353)

    Classes: All Honors and AP all 4 years
    Senior year-
    AP Psychology
    AP Spanish
    AP Calculus
    AP English
    H Physics

    EC:
    Literary Club-Secretary
    Interact Club (like Rotary)-Secretary
    Debate Team (disbanded last year-little $$$, no supervisor)
    Baseball-all 4 years

    Misc.:
    National Youth Leadership Conference in D.C.
    Boys State

    *Yeah, my EC are pretty weak.

    Any and all feedback and suggestions are welcome. I also have no problem with vitriolic and hard-line answers (be honest).

    You are way above their standards. You're in as long as you make it clear that you're not using Northeastern as a safety. Just apply early and put thought into your application, and I'm sure you're a good candidate for the honors program and a nice scholarship.
