    You should probably retake the SAT and ACT, but overall you look like a contender. Could you give us your AP scores? Luckily those two universities aren't too competitive, so you'll have an even better chance than normal.

    Well i dont have all my ap scores in yet but so far I have recieved a 5 in US history, 5 in bio, and a 4 in Chem.
    Also, I forgot a major ec in the above post..3rd place in physics teams competition in ohio.

    Plz more feedback...
    do I need to specifically work on more ec's or just try to improve my sat as much as I can. Or, are these schools already matches.

    how can that idiot up there say northwestern is not competitive. it is very competitive. you have a decent chance for nw i'd say, especially with ur valedictorian. i dont know too much though, i'm only a junior in highs chool as well.

    Abosultely for Case. As for Northwestern, I would say you are a below average applicant, especially when you take into consideration your ORM status.
