Chance me?

<p>I'm a rising senior, and would like any feedback on my chances for admission. Thanks!</p>

<p>SAT I: CR:670, M:740, W:690; 2100 (re-taking, and feel confident that I will score higher)
SAT II: Math II: 750, Chem: 720
ACT: Probably lower 30's.</p>

<p>Our school has a strange GPA system, so I couldn't figure out what my GPA is unweighted. (Reg: 5.0/Pre-AP: 6.0/AP: 6.25)
Weighted GPA: 5.33
Rank: 16/490</p>

<p>State: Texas
Gender: Male
Ethnicity: Asian (Korean)</p>

<p>At this point, your chances are probably lower than average. Test scores are weak, and extracurriculars show little in terms of impact beyond high school. Boy Scouts is probably your strongest EC, but not something to hang your hat on when applying to Columbia. Awards are also fairly standard, with nothing indicating outstanding academic achievement.</p>

<p>I would try to boost your SATs, of course , and then look beyond your high school for ECs that might get your name in the newspaper. Volunteer work (maybe even through the Boy Scouts) or maybe a project that takes your high school club beyond local borders.</p>

<p>Good luck in your college search!</p>

<p>@jamescchen: Thanks for the advice, sounds like in general I really need to improve my scores.</p>
