    SAT II Math scores are low especially for an Asian male.
    Can you retake the test?
    I didn’t see any Calculus, what level of Math have you done?
    Many Wharton applicants will have AP Calculus BC.

    Your internship and leadership looks good.
    Try and make sure you get strong recs. You can send an optional 3rd rec, from your internship or coach or someone who can write about leadership or business interests.

    Hey!
    I currently attend the M&T program at upenn, and I will be glad to look over your essay and give you pointers!
    My advice is that you have to emphasize your qualities and how they fit with the bigger upenn, wharton, community.

    ^^
    if it is possible, perhaps consider retaking SAT Subject tests, considering a vast majority of people get an 800 on the SAT Math 2. While a 720 wouldn't disqualify you, it might raise eyebrows.
    I won't say anything about Wharton acceptance chances, because honestly it's a lottery whoever you are.
    However, I'm also a Whartonite who got in RD last year so I'd be willing to give a look if I have a chance.

    Like others have said already. I would strongly suggest to improve your math II score. You still have an advantages where your extracurricular help you stand out . And make sure to write a good essay that will also distinguish you from other applicants.
