<p>Please Someone let me know</p>

<p>Well, for the schools you selected, it seems you're stats (mainly GPA is the issue). It is an upward trend, but I'd work my ass off first semester of Senior year to bump that up. 1800 SAT's I think are pretty on par with the schools you chose.
Just for a smaller boost, I'd volunteer a lot of summer to 300 hours-ish. Just if you wanna be safe.
Just go on US News Rankings, and find other schools that are closely ranked to the ones you chose. Then you can just look up what their admission stats, location, etc. are like and find new places.</p>

<p>PS- Help a fellow Indian out and PM how you got to campaign with a Senator. I've been meaning to do something like that too</p>

<p>I agree about your GPA!
But otherwise your courses are all very demanding so they can't question how you're challenging yourself.
I also admire your ECs - it sort of shows you're willing to stray out of the same old school clubs to look for things sort of more as a grown-up if that makes sense?
Being Indian might help for minority status I suppose.</p>

<p>Look at Boston U's stats and stuff on collegeboard.com, i think you could be suited if you get your GPA up.
Take the SATs again too, for good measure.</p>

<p>Chance me back pleasee :)</p>

<p>No^^^^^^</p>

<p>Indian status HURTS him. Indians are ignorantly just labelled as the usual Asians so he's a Over Represented Minority.</p>
