Again..... Do I have a chance?

<p>Hey guys I want to get accepted to these schools: Columbia, Villanova, Boston College, Boston University, and TCNJ I have a GPA of a 3.8 and SAT of 1800 (super-scored). I am taking the SAT again in the fall ( goal to get a 1900) and the Bio and Math I and maybeee Math II Subject tests. What are my chances and IF YOU GOT ACCEPTED were your scores like mine?</p>

<p>P.S </p>

<p>I speak three languages Arabic (first language since my parents are foreigners from Syria) , English, and Spanish.</p>

<p>I am CCD first grade and kindergarten teacher for two years (volunteer work). And was in Sunday school in freshman year (got my conformation).</p>

<p>I have taken 10 honors courses 9 - 11 grade.
I will take 2 more honors courses next year with AP lit, bio, and psychology.
I earned the Scholastic Award (academic award for freshman year).</p>

<p>I have worked since freshman year. And now carry a second job as well and an internship
this summer
I started photography club at my school and I am the President.
And I am a homeroom rep aka student govt.</p>

<p>I write on my own religious blog. (Won a contest and wrote a review about "Jesus > Religion" by Jefferson Bethke before the book came out and is now a NY Times Best Seller).
I have done Mock Trail, Model UN (delegate and treasurer), Interact, and Habitat for Humanity from freshman or sophomore year).
I have danced since freshman year but had to quite due to expenses this year.
Over the summer I have volunteered at my town's library because I loveeee reading books.
Also I went to Washington D.C for a Law & CSI program with George Mason Law and University plus I got to visit and talk to Georgetown Law admissions :)
I want to be an attorney and if I got into probably left some stuff out but this is it.</p>

<p>Please tell me if I have a chance Columbia, Villanova, Boston College, Boston University, and TCNJ. Or if they are a reach or at my level.
Thank you! </p>

<p>Again not really. Most are reaches.</p>

<p>I’m only a Junior, but my friend is matriculating to BC and he got a 31 on his ACT, which is ~2000 SAT. I’d suggest taking ACT as well, b/c a lot of people I know (including myself) did so much better on it than ACT (I got a 35 ACT compared to 2170 SAT). Other than that, I think your stats are better than my friend’s (esp. ECs). I think BC is manageable (w/ improved SAT/ACT), so is Villanova, TCNJ, BU. Columbia might be a little bit of a reach, but who knows?</p>

<p>As of now, I think Columbia (assuming you mean the University, in NY) is around a high reach. If it’s your first choice, I think you would do well to aim for 2000+ (very doable, especially with so much time left until Oct) on the SAT and take the Math II subject test, if you are able to. You also don’t need to have both Math I and Math II.</p>

<p>I think all these colleges are high reaches. You should apply to colleges which specialize in law such as AU or GWU. Your SAT score is a little low but your GPA seems fine. </p>

<p>Please chance me: <a href=“”></a></p>

<p>Columbia is pretty unlikely. Villanova, BC, and BU are probably high-matches and TCNJ a safety.</p>

<p>Columbia is high reach. BC is really religious so your EC about writing on your own religious blog will probably give you a boost there. Try to improve your SAT scores and the rest, excluding Columbia, are doable! Good luck</p>

<p>Yeah i am really religious so hopefully I do go to a Catholic school / private :smiley: like BC or Villanova </p>
