what are my chances?

<p>Sat I: 720 V 750M (I'm gonna retake in Nov only b/c I was sick when I took it in January and just feel that I could have done better if I hadn't been sick. I'm not an arrogant overachiever or anthing)</p>

Math IIc 750
Biology 730
Writing 640 (bad day..but I dunno if I'll retake)</p>

<p>AP scores
Biology 5
Calculus BC 5
Calculus AB subscore: 5
US History 4
Chemistry 4</p>

<p>I have a 3.8 unweigted GPA and a 4.45 weighted. My school is extremely competitive and this is a good GPA.</p>

<p>I've been in several Honor societies, good leadership roles, community services (350+ hours), etc...</p>

<p>I've done 2 summers of biomedical enginnering research in which 1 year my name was aknowledged in the "aknowledged" section for my testing and stuff in a published scientific paper. </p>

<p>I'm taking 5 AP classes this year and have been doing really well on them</p>

<p>I'm applying for Biology as a RD applicant for WashU, Columbia, Cornell, UPenn, Rice, EMory, Vanderbilt</p>

<p>I know in some parts I'm being vague but if you need clarifications just write them in your replies. thanks guys</p>

<p>You're a solid candidate at all. Do retake SATII writing if you think you can do better. It's important at the ivys.</p>

<p>Hey blue daisy thanks first off for your response. I think first off that ur ap scores are very solid and unless u can make substantial improvement in the sat which is very solid, you are better off just improivng the writing score like lisa said. Concentrate on that and then just worry bout sending in a solid essay and acquiring strong recs. Ur gpa is very strong (is it top 10%) Also i think the biomedical engineering stands out the most. Lastly are u applying ED anywhere cuz if u have a clear cut fav. that can boost u in. Good luck, keep up the good work, looks like we'll be competing at Washu Cornell, Vanderbilt, and Emory haha. Wait y am i laughing lol</p>

<p>thx, I'll definitely take your advice into consideration.</p>

<p>any other considerations? Please I need lots of imputs on what and how I can improve</p>

<p>You might want to take the ACT also. Many of my friends did better on it, than the SATs. I always thought the SATs were easier, but since the ACT better tests what we've learned in high school, it might in fact be easier to take.</p>

<p>Just my 2 cents.</p>

<p>my friends told me the same thing. I, as well, thought the SAT was easier...mostly because less sections and more time on sech section. I've been struggling with the whole "take ACT" or "not take it" for a long time now. thx for the advice</p>

<p>More comments please. And what's does "bump" mean. I've been seeing it everywhere lol. Does it mean please post?</p>
