    I would say that you have a pretty good chance at getting in. I got in without stats that good, but, every circumstance is different.

    You look great--except for the SAT. For Chem E, aim for a minimum of another 150-200 points--judging by this past year's brutal competition. If you can do more science or engineering summer programs and ECs, so much the better. Also, take the essays very seriously. Contrary to the majority opinion in this forum last year, I think they mattered.

    Everything looks okay, but you really do need to raise your SAT score. I'd say you can't be absolutely confident until your score is 2100+ (2200+ would be ideal).
