    Bring that SAT up and you'll be a virtual lock (aim for 2000+). Also consider taking the ACT.

    If you can raise your SAT even a little bit (1850+, obviously the higher the better) it would help, but even as it is now I would think that you'd get in. Your ECs are very good and your grades are also quite good. I agree with the poster who advised the ACT, if you haven't considered it yet -- some people just fare better on one test than on the other. You have a really good shot. I know people who got in with much worse ranks and ECs and similar SATs this year. Good luck.
