    Great stats, I think you have an excellent chance, and that is so cool that you are Russian! Were you born in Russia? What did you write your essays on?

    Also, did you not take any Subject Tests?

    Being good at writing is great but the actual material in your essays has to be good. And if your teacher recs aren't "the best", I might look for other teachers. Your recs should be excellent
