<p>Wow. Unique ECs and great scores. I think these might be enough to counteract your GPA -- you will have to write good essays though. Good luck!</p>

<p>I would suggest you contact the admissions office. They might have some thoughts.</p>

<p>Do you have any talent? Music, writinng, acting? If so you should look providing art supplement. This will improve your chances.</p>

<p>My daughter will be a member of the class of 2013 and submitted CDs with her playing both the piano and the cello. I feel that this was instrumental in getting accepted.</p>

<p>Good luck...</p>

<p>Creative writing is my 'talent' but I'll have to devote some time into putting together that supplement. Does it really matter much? Also, literature is a very subjective thing. So suppose my reader doesn't like my writing's style/content, do you suppose it could have a negative effect on my chances?</p>
