    I'm afraid to say that most of your stats are in the average range, where is quite competitive in the application pool. And I strongly suggest improving your scores on the Math II subject test and write a good essay that will distinguish you from other applicants.

    I think you have a good chance if your essays are great but a lot of people in your demographic (asian and female) have very very similar applications as you. I would suggest doing something very different in order to stand out <3
