<p>Any suggestions for what I can do this year to help my chances? Thanks!</p>

<p>You definitely have to get that SAT up, at least to a 2050.</p>

<p>With that SAT, your chances are significantly diminished. Like dfree said, get it up to AT LEAST a 2050.</p>

<p>Also, if you're still an underclassman, I suggest finding some sort of passion that shows through in your ECs. There doesn't seem to be any real focus except for maybe writing (poetry?).</p>
