    Why did you score so well on your SAT IIs but didn't do so well on your ACT/SATs? With your current scores, Chicago is a high reach.

    Average SAT at Chicago is 2200 and average ACT is 32. And that's just incoming students, not admitted students, so the admitted student average may be even higher. Therefore, you are quite below where you should be, especially as an over-represented minority.
