<p>I dont know what your UW GPA is but your SAT scores and class rigor look good. However, your extracurricular activities and volunteer activities look a little weak. A lot of your volunteer activities are only for a few months. I think that if your essays were really good you'd have a good chance, but it's kind of hard to tell.</p>

<p>i have been doing the tutoring and been part of both charity clubs for at least two years. I have stated that on my common app, do you think that would help? Also, I forgot to include here that I am also part of an out of school commnutiy service organization and have been doing some service quite frequently, and that has also been going on for three years, also in common app. Plus, I hosted and was part of a self-organized fund rasier for one of the earthquakes in China that raised up to 20,000 rmb. Hopefully that would improve my profile by some bit...but thank you so much for chancing me :)</p>

<p>I think you have a very good chance. Wellesley looks for unique, strong and interesting candidates and that seems to fit you. Your IB and SATs are remarkably high (IMO) and if you're confident in your essays, you shouldn't have to worry (too much!).</p>

<p>thank you!</p>

<p>Your stats look very good, however you need to remember that the college admissions process is not very predictable. My advice is not to get too set on any one school, but rather to think in terms of several schools you could imagine yourself at. Then, in case one of them lets you down, you will still have several others to focus on.</p>

<p>Best wishes for lots of great acceptances!</p>

<p>thank you :) i do have several other schools in mind</p>
