<p>I am a member of a number of other clubs and hold leadership positions in many of them.</p>

<p>I have conducted medical research on cancer in mice and authored/published a paper on a transgenic mouse line that expresses the influenza hemagglutinin (HA) on pancreatic islet beta cells and the T Cell and HA Antigen response to the strain of cancer. (You get the idea -- I'm too lazy to explain all the details.)</p>

<p>My essays and teacher recs are very good.</p>

<p>I live in Indianapolis and do not need financial aid (if that helps at all)</p>

<p>Also - I am planning to retake the SAT in January for some of my other RD schools. Will Notre Dame accept those scores?</p>

<p>I know my scores are low but will good EC's and essays offset those low scores?</p>

<p>your scores are a little low but your ec's look really good. i think if you can bring up your scores a little in Jan. then you will have a really good chance</p>

<p>What makes me nervous is that you live in Indiana honestly. There are just so many applications from Indiana that it is harder to get in because ND wants geographical diversity. I think you are going to be close so I definately would try to sneak in another SAT if you can and pray pray pray! Good luck!</p>

<p>BTW, not needing financial aid should not make a difference as ND is need-blind.</p>
