PSAT - 205
ACT - 35</p>

<p>SAT Math II - 800
SAT Physics - 750
will take bio, us history</p>

<p>Unweighted GPA -3.8
Weighted GPA - 4.6</p>

<p>AP Physics - 5 (only one I've taken so far, should complete 10 by end of senior year)</p>

<p>Extra curriculars - play alto sax in 3rd highest band(out of 5) for 3 years
placed 42nd at national scripps spelling bee in 2009

<p>By the way, I would come under the category: Asian.</p>

<p>Thank you!</p>

<p>You are really an outstanding student! Try to get your SAT scores above 2200, and I think you will definitley be a strong applicant for ivies.</p>

<p>Thank you! What do you think of the B+ in Biology? I was really worried that it might affect me getting into a top college, especially for a science field.</p>

<p>Thank you.</p>

<p>ACT's a 35 which is miles better than your SAT Is. If you can, don't send the SAT. </p>

<p>Decent chances. ECs could be stronger as with uw gpa, but still good.</p>

<p>Don't ever retake the SAT, and as far as colleges are concerned, pretend you do not have an SAT score. Disregard what SeattleBulldog said.</p>

<p>Which state are you a resident of? If you are a resident of Texas, you can check your class rank against the automatic admission thresholds of Texas A&M and UT Austin (although automatic admissions might mean just the campus, not necessarily the major).</p>

<p>Many of the schools do not have aerospace engineering, although they may have aerospace under mechanical engineering. Most of them are not in the Ivy League either.</p>

<p>If you apply to Berkeley for mechanical engineering, apply for the full ride Drake</a> Scholarship.</p>

<p>Be sure to have a safety which you will be admitted to and which you know that you will be able to afford.</p>

<p>You are a wonderful student and will get in somewhere great. Your ACT is smokin' - so I would submit that, rather than the 2150 SAT. I do not think it is worth it to take the SAT again, but that is up to you. The B+ in AP BIO is not going to kill your chances at any of those schools. Keep working hard and write some compelling essays. Best of luck!</p>

<p>I live in Chicago, so ACT will work great in the Midwest But I heard that for schools on either coast, SAT is the important test score they will look at.</p>

<p>"But I heard that for schools on either coast, SAT is the important test score they will look at. "</p>

<p>That's a myth. Please kill it anytime you encounter it. Congrats on the ACT 35.</p>

<p>Send in the ACT and forget about your SAT.</p>

<p>Nice scores and accomplishments. You have a decent shot at all of these schools.</p>

<p>Simple question: why are you asking a forum comprised mainly of high school candidates to "chance" you on admission. The truth is that people here are not in the position to do so. Apply, do your best, and see what happens. Take advice with a grain of salt. And speak to actual students at the universities you want to attend. You will be surprised to see how their assessments will vary from those of people on these forums.</p>

<p>you definitively have a chance at brown</p>

<p>I'd say that you have a more than 50 % chance at the colleges you are applying to, parly due to the fact that you have great EC's but seriously, you are battling kids from Nigeria and Africa, who may not be as competitive as you, but they have the benefit of being huge URM's.
However, there are only so many kids applying from there, so I'd say you have a failry moderate to lower high chance.
Keep up the good work and just do better!

<p>God blessed you with your Asian heritage. Haha that about doubles your chances than if you were just a white guy.</p>

<p>Hassan has said that you have six times more likelihood of other applicants to Princeton and Stanford given their statistical rates of ~8%.</p>

<p>This is the reason why asking HS students to "chance you" is like asking a blind person to tell you how your new haircut looks.</p>

<p>HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH good joke there T26E4!!!!!! keep up with the jokes and I'm sue you will reach somewhere great (You made my day, my man)</p>

<p>BTW just try to get into a couple of good summer programs (SST, Yale summer stuff or JHU)
In addition, try to get a couple of good internships under your belt.</p>

<p>Lastly, if you want to volunteer, go somewhere outside (Other countries) but make sure you have passion to make that country better. Don't just go to mongolia and then put it on Admissions essay... nnnnooooooo. Absolutely not. Besides this, you have a chance-everyone has 1. it is what you make of that chance that matters. Do what you love!</p>
