<p>What do you do in the calculator club?</p>

<p>That actually sounds fun.</p>

<p>well in the calculator culb i teach students 9-12 how to use their calcs. Can someone tell me my chances?</p>

<p>You are definately in the running, however I do not see any special "hook" that would tip a decision to acceptance. Also, you rank is not the best (still good though). I think you would be competitive if you write great essays about what drives you. Make sure you can differentiate yourself from the other applicants.</p>

<p>Thanks guys. will being an engineering major and doing SCEA help alot? and what are hooks? sorry im stupid</p>

<p>Something that makes you stand out, like a legacy, urm status, big award, special talent/interest, etc.</p>

<p>Obviously very solid test scores. I'd put your chances at 50/50. You don't seem to have a lot of extra-currics. Make sure you write good essays and get good recs. Hopefully, applying early will help you out.</p>

<p>Looks Like Community College for you. I know someone that had much better scores and didn't get in sorry. :(</p>

<p>jinp--I wouldn't lend any credence to what anyone says here. All we're going by is some numbers and a list of ECs. admissions officers will have full guidance counselor and teacher recs, transcript, essays, full ECs, etc. It's really just IMPOSSIBLE to say.</p>
