Chance me? SAT scores expected to improve greatly

ally22ally22 56 replies13 threads Junior Member
I have an unweighted 4.0 in highschool, weighted is about a 102/100. I am currently number 9 out of about 470 kids in a decent highschool. I would be applying undecided as I know I have no chance of getting into Wharton.

My SAT scores aren't great, definitely not UPenn material--I took it sophomore year without studying, received a 1900, and then somehow junior year without studying got a 1310 (which translates to an 1860) which I will not be reporting. However I have been doing sessions with a personal SAT tutor and I haven't taken an entire practice test yet but I did do a practice session of reading and only got 3 out of 52 wrong, compared to my previous 8. I also have significantly improved on the writing and language which happened to be my worst subject. Basically--don't chance me entirely on SAT scores.

My chance is automatically lowered because I am a middle-class white girl from New Jersey.

My schedule for sophomore year was all honors and one AP class (all my school offers). Junior year I took AP Physics 1, AP AB Calculus and AP US History II and honors language arts. Senior year I am taking AP Physics C, AP BC Calculus, AP Government, and AP Literature.

My ECs are basic, nothing extraordinary at all.
