Chance me, please!

<p>I am much smarter than my GPA suggests; I actually took a hit in a Religion course that my (parochial) school requires because I was too busy with important classes. I have read extensively on the works of Sagan and Feynman and I am very knowledgeable despite these not being pertinent to my high school curriculum. I find that I am a much better communicator than most of my peers that are higher ranked than I and I believe an interview would serve me very well. I often find myself studying things that are not necessarily helpful to my high school studies but that satisfy my need to learn. </p>

<p>Regardless, what would you guys say about my chances?</p>

<p>P.S. I'm also looking to apply at RPI, WPI, Tufts, and Northeastern. If possible, evaluate my chances there too? Thanks in advance!</p>
