What are my chances Early Decision admission to UPenn?

<p>I'm ranked 20 out of 500.
My GPA is a 5.38/6.0, roughly a 3.8 on a 4.0 scale.
My SAT score is a 2270: 740 math, 730 reading, 800 writing
My ACT score is a 33 (I plan on retaking this)
I'm taking subject tests in October, but I've gotten an 800 on my Math II.
I got a 220 on my PSAT, so I'm National Merit. </p>

<p>I'm in all IB courses, and did all pre-AP and AP classes up till my junior year (5's on all my AP tests.). I'm in NHS and NSHS, Photography club, Model United Nations, and Recycling club. I have an officer position in a volunteering club in my high school as well as being a project leader for an International Project at my high school.
I'm the features editor for my high school newspaper for the second year.
I'm the president of a Leo's Club (a smaller version of a Lion's club) in my community. I've also started a nonprofit organization to raise money, but it's still in the works. I have lots of volunteer hours through all four years of high school.
I've worked at academies for the last two summers. I'm going to have an internship this summer at a university.
I've done dance since I was five and won around five consecutive competitions (first and second place). I play the piano and violin and am giving lessons this summer.
My poetry was published in ninth grade, I've won several newspaper awards and academic achievements at school.</p>

<p>I really want to get into this school, and I plan to Early Decision it, but are there any other things I should possibly attempt to do to increase my chances? Just wanted to cover all possible bases :)</p>

<p>*also, I'm applying to the College of Arts and Sciences, not Wharton.</p>

<p>I think you have a decent shot, but that depends on how competitive your school is and how many ppl Penn usually accepts from your school</p>

<p>This year they accepted three people. I'm not entirely sure how many the usual number is, but my school's pretty competitive, I'd say.</p>

<p>it'll be a battle, but you can do it...and ED improves your chances typically</p>

<p>Not much stands out... too much like a typical Ivy applicant with possible exception of 1 thing.</p>

<p>all right, thank you !</p>

<p>You have a wonderful SAT score, but I'd try to bump it up a bit for the best chance possible.</p>

<p>Your EC's seem scattered. I don't see passion in any 1 or 2 areas.</p>

<p>Get your ACT to 34 or 35 and that would help you a lot. I don't think that your ECs are scattered; they all seem kind of artistic. I think you have a pretty good shot at UPenn, especially if you ED. Good luck</p>

<p>Your stats are just about median for Penn, if you're not from the mid Atlantic or state that sends Penn many applicants, that will help a lot.</p>

<p>I'm from Texas, so I'm not exactly sure where that stands statistically.</p>

<p>but thank you all for your help :)</p>

<p>(annoying revival, sorry)</p>

<p>1) Need stronger ECs
2) Find some similarities between your ECs so that they don't seem so scattered
3) Make sure your "why Penn" essay is good</p>
