    B- only hooks are the WV residency-so i gave you something a little higher than Wash U's general admission rate, some of the subjectives might put you in a higher status, but unfortunately my friend subjectives cannot be measured by A, B,C, or D quantities

    I don't see why you wouldn't get in. I don't think Wash U is that selective that you would need a "hook."

    to the poster above, the acceptance rate is around 21% my friend.

    I think you have a decent shot, maybe c or d. You SAT is a bit low, but your GPA, SAT 2's, and AP scores are very high. Show a lot of interest, that's what got me in. Get an interview.
