Univ. Pitt is one of my top choices and I want to send the applications as soon as I retake my SAT but here are my stats :(

GPA. 3.25w (Private Catholic school)
I took all college prep. Freshmen year and every year I challenged myself took honors in various subjects and now I am taking AP bio as a senior.

SAT I did awful,
550 Math 500 reading but def. re taking the SAT
And SAT II for MATH 1 and Korean

Recomm. Letters from my science math teacher and one from my councilor, he said He is going to write me a really nice one.

I teach little kids Korean every Sunday
Yg president leader for two years.
Varsity track (indoor/Outdoor) for 3 years
And planning to continue senior year
2nd degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, won couple gold medals for sparing,
Involved in demonstrator team
Joined couple school clubs etc....

I know my resume seems a bit weak, but I really want to get this school.
I heard like emailing admin about how you are interested could also increase chance but I don’t know if that applies to Pitt but please guide me through
I am getting more anxious about colleges as time passes by 

Thanks :)

    If you haven't done it already, go to the Pitt website and request a viewbook. It's an easy way to show interest and they may send you an application fee waiver along with the viewbook.
