Letter of Recommendations:
One from my Honors/IB Biology Teacher
One from my AP English and Language Comp teacher
One from my Counselor

I'm expecting a good letter from each.

Two letters from BU Professors when I participated in a summer challenge program at the school, both say very good things.

Essays: Should be decent but nothing superb or below average.

Please let me know my chances! I have bad test scores/gpa but I have great EC's and Class Rigor.
