Chance for Penn?

Hi. Currently Senior and I was wondering if I had any shot in getting in Penn?

W: 700

SAT Subject Test
Bio M: 690
World H:750

Calc AB
Physics C
World History
Computer Science

GPA: 3.94/4.0

Let's assume my extra currics are up to par, I've done some amazing work, gotten a lot of honors, have volunteered a lot in the community, my essays are above decent, and I have 3 outstanding recs.

I'm still waiting for my last SAT, hopefully CR rose.

    My advice to you would be to find your "hook" and make yourself standout. A hook is not necessarily the athlete, legacy, urm, devolpment case. A hook it anything that your passionate about that makes you stand out from all the other paper perfect admits. Thousands of applicants have the perfect scores, grades, and stereotypical officer positions. You have to make yourself unique and someone the admissions officers will remember.

    What do you mean by hooks?
