<p>Wow sounds like you're an incredibly competitive applicant for American. From what I've heard, they like people who take challenging classes. Plus it seems as if you have things that you have things that you genuinely interested about. (all that political stuff)</p>

<p>I'd have to say that American might be a good fit for you.</p>
