Chance Me Please, for ED

<p>Here are my stats:</p>

<p>GPA: 4.0 unweighted, 4.25 weighted (4.0 scale)</p>

<p>ACT: 34 (34 Eng, 34 Math, 31 Reading, 36 Sciecne, 8 Writing)
Second sitting (state required) was 33 (34 Eng, 36 Math, 31 Reading, 31 Science, 8 Writing), so superscore is still a 34. I am only sending my first score in (34) and self reporting the rest on the Common App, as Columbia requests you do.</p>

<p>SAT: 1930 (fml) (600 CR, 700 Math, 630 Writing, 7 Essay)
^^ idk what was wrong with me that day, I've been taking previously administered tests and have been averaging around a 2230. I am taking it again in October. So assume I get a 2200.</p>

<p>PSAT: 219. National Merit Semifinalist.</p>

<p>Subject Tests: MathIIC 800, Chem 790, US History 750</p>

<p>8 AP Classes by Graduation:
AP Human Geography (9th grade)
AP U.S. History (10th)
AP Macroeconomics (11th)
AP Microeconomics (11th)
AP Chemistry (11th)
AP English Language (11th)
AP English Literature (12th)
AP European History (12th)
AP Government (12th)</p>

<p>Weak Point: Math. Don't get me wrong, I am VERY good at Math. I am at the top of my class in every single math class I have taken and I got an 800 on the Math IIC subject test, which covers pre-calc (which I haven't taken yet), but I am not in advanced math like most of my peers because I came from a worse school district in 7th grade where their advanced math was this districts regular math (although college admissions won't recognize this...). My senior math class will be Honors Pre-Calculus. I asked my teacher to put me in Honors Precalc instead of regular, but most of my peers are taking AP Calc AB/BC. <How do I show this to adcoms btw??</p>

<p>^^ I am NOT an intended math or science major. I want to do International Relations and Law (or something to do with Social Sciences.)</p>

<p>Thanks for reading, what are my chances?? Also a couple questions:</p>

<p>If I submit my ACT and SAT, and the ACT is a 34 and lets say the SAT is around a 2200, they'll look at my ACT right? but will they look at my SAT too? because I'm more likely to get a better essay score on the SAT. I didn't know that ACT looked for a three-tiered structured essay, so I got 8's. </p>

<p>And, how do I show to adcoms that the only reason I am in "regular" math when I can easily handle advanced math is because I came from a worse school district in middle school and they wouldn't let me start in advanced math like most of my peers?</p>

<p>just tell them. literally. there's a section for additional info, just tell them your circumstance and why you couldn't be in the advanced track.</p>

<p>they'll look at both act and sat and consider the best parts of each. </p>

<p>you have a great shot, your application is impressive.</p>
