Chance in ISP

What are my chances of getting into ISP?
SAT II-
Math II: 800
Chem: 790
Phy: 760
ACT-33 (with 36 in math and science)
AP Chem-5

Should I try to retake Physics before applying or is 760 good enough? I'm taking a rigorous math/science courseload but my class rank isn't that great.

    You'll get into ISP just fine. I'm a junior in the program, and I have yet to meet a student on campus who didn't get in, despite the numbers the program quotes. With those scores, and assuming adequate extracurriculars, you're probably set to get into Northwestern as well. If you'd like to be sure, you could always contact the program administrator or director - it doesn't hurt to express interest. They also are supposed to have some sway with the university admission board. Also, for future decision-making help, if you're really interested in the program and you're in the area, you can stop by, take a tour of the ISP house, and meet current students in the program.

    Awesome scores, although you don't have matching ACT scores, but I guess that shouldn't matter too much. Good luck!
