    I would say that you have a pretty good chance. Your SAT scores could be higher, but I believe they are within the ranges of Wash U's 25%-75%. Your ACT is also good, fitting right into their 30-33. Your GPA is great and so are your classes, which is a good thing. I talked to a WASH U rep and he said the transcript was the most important thing, and it looks like you have that. I'm actually applying to WASH U ED and if all goes well, maybe I'll see you there next year. Oh, and I don't know if some of your achievements such as the National Honor Roll and National Society of High School Scholars are the greatest things to represent you since I believe they are a scam, but again thats just my personal opinion and I could be wrong. Anyway, I wish you luck.
