Scores too low?

Hey I was wondering if my scores were too low for Northwestern...

SAT I: 2010 (610CR 750M 650W)
SAT II: Chem 800 Phys 800 MathIIC 800

GPA: 3.7UW out of 4.0.

Do you think I still have some chance being that my SAT I is low?

Do colleges see SATII as the same weighting or lower/higher than the SATI?

Thank you!

    They see SATII's as an side note (proven by the fact that they don't require them). However, your math is in the target range, writing is a little low, CR is a little low. However, they are not a strictly numbers based school, so your EC's and such will matter a good bit too.

    That being said, with your SATI kind of low, and your GPA kind of low (Unless you go to an excellent school), you probably wouldn't have the best chances, but definitely not no chance.
