    You obviously have worked very hard. Pat yourself on the back! You have a strong weighted GPA-your AP test scores are not listed?-but your ACT/SAT II scores are not where you want them to be when applying ED at NU. So, stats wise you would be well served to bring up your test scores. Your ECs are all over the field-do you have any REAL interests-passions? Can you find an internship this summer that will demonstrate those passions-hopefully incorporating business in some fashion? G'Luck!
