<p>I'm a white male, currently a junior. I am taking Calculus BC now, have a 100, should still have one at the end of the year and will make a 5. AP Chemistry is the same situation. My school won't let me take AP Physics, amazingly enough, so I have to take that next year at the big state university. I took all the honors classes I could last year as well as one AP (Human Geography-5) and this year I have AP US Government, AP US History, AP English Language and Composition, BC Cal, and Chem. I should have all 5s except for possibly APUS and Gov. By my senior year I will have taken BC Cal, Multivariable Calculus, and Linear Algebra with Differential Equations. During my senior year I will most likely take the next level of Chemistry, a Calc based Physics class and whatever other math course the University will allow me to take. I'll have As in all of the classes, and I'm hoping the credit won't make me count as a transfer. I think it might at Stanford, so I'll have to look into that. I have some other extra curriculars like Mock Trial, NHS, I play golf recreationally, I play the guitar, I have a few hundred hours of tutoring kids who have learning disabilities and/or don't speak English.
The only thing is I don't have any math awards or national recognition just because there aren't many opportunities for students not in my school's Magnet program for those gifted in math and science. I know it seems odd I'm not in it, but I transferred in the tenth grade and you have to enter in the ninth for Magnet. Thus I have no AMC/AIME/Chem Olympiad recognitions because I can't take the tests.</p>
<p>Do I stand a chance? If you need more information, let me know and I'll post it.</p>
<p>Oh, SAT I will be around 1550+, Chem 800, IIC 770-800. I know they may seem low for CalTech, but that's why I'm worried.</p>
