    While your test scores are low, your gpa and class rank are high. I'd think that a balanced approach to your statistics and your EC's should secure you a spot in next years class. Good Luck!

    That's what I'm hoping. I've never been a good test taker and my scores do not reflect my academic ability. Thank you so much for your response!
