I took so many SAT 2's because i need to compensate for my failure in 10th grade, and because I could take it.

I changed a lot between 10th and 11th grade. I am sure the my huge upward trend can help me when i apply.
So please give me feedback and ur opinions

Assuming I Write a kick ass essay, please chance me for these :P

    wow, your the spittin image of my sister from about 2 years ago. had a 2310 SAT and a bit lower 10th grade gpa (3.0) with the same upward trend junior/senior years. Her experience was campuswide honors at UCI, regents at UCSD, and rejected by Cal and UCLA. The latter are very GPA focused. Anyhow she decided to attend Notre Dame and is getting a 3.9+ as a pre-med there. Shame that Cal and UCLA didn't focus more on the upward trend and test scores. Imo, the above pattern is more impressive than someone that gets a 3.0 in high school with a 1700 SAT then goes off to CC and gets a 3.6 and is an auto-admit at Cal.
