<p>What are my chances at UCSD, UCLA, UCB, NYU, Northwestern, Cornell, Columbia</p>

<p>Don't worry!you'll definitely get into one of these colleges.Anyway you have higher chances than me in getting into Cornell. Good luck!</p>

<p>Test scores and ECs are good, but only 2 foreign language classes? Colleges definitely want to see more than that.</p>

<p>Thanks for pointing that out. </p>

<p>I took Spanish I and Spanish II in 7th and 8th grade. Do those sill count??</p>
