Why have I not been accepted yet?!

I'm a senior at SBHS.
I applied to Rutgers New Brunswick on November 30, two days before the deadline.
They didn't receive my SAT scores until about a week and a half later.
I only took the SAT once and my scores are:
Critical Reading: 580
Math: 610
Writing: 580
That equals 1770/2400.

My UNWEIGHTED GPA is a 3.4.
However, I took AP Art History last year with a 91% final grade.
I am currently taking AP European History, AP Comparative Gov. & Pol, AP Economics, and getting college credit for my English class.

I also never took the ACT.

I was involved in choir, theatre, voice lessons, playing the guitar and the piano, and JSA.
I volunteered at Catholic Charities helping with food packaging, childcare, and computer data input.

I wrote a really nice essay as well.
I applied to Arts & Sciences, Ecological & Biological Sciences, and Business.

I've pretty much heard that if you don't get accepted within a week, you're not going to get accepted at all. Should I panic?
