Thanks</p>

<p>You have a lot of great things working in your favor, although reading is definitely a concern. You're clearly not on top of it, given both your SAT and ACT scores in reading are very low compared to the rest of your credentials. Given your current test scores, you'd be dragging yourself into the "maybe, maybe not" category for Cornell, Johns Hopkins, Emory and Tufts.</p>

<p>Something else to consider is the fact that your one year with JV volleyball shows lack of long-term dedication. Maybe consider leaving that one out.</p>

<p>Most likely acceptances at UF, UMiami, Wake Forest, and Tufts.</p>

<p>bump 10char</p>

<p>How do you have national ap scholar award with only 5ap's?</p>

<p>AP Scholar***
not National</p>

<p>bump 10char</p>

<p>In at UF and Miami.</p>

<p>Good fit at Wake Forest.</p>

<p>The rest are reaches with your current scores. In order of likelihood-Emory, Johns Hopkins, Tufts, Cornell.</p>

<p>Reach for Cornell, Hopkins, Emory and maybe Tufts but should be in at the others.
Reasoning: Low test scores and variety of EC's rather than one clear passion.</p>

<p>With the great rank I'd focus on the scores this summer and fall. Have you tried a class and lots of practice tests?</p>
