    Your SAT score isn't on Yale's level, so maybe you could re-take it? And your SAT II Physics score is good--not amazing but okay. Otherwise you seem pretty good... You never know with Ivy Leagues, but if your essay is good and you up your SAT scores, you have a pretty good chance. Also I don't know if the only volunteer work you ever did, but if you was, maybe you should do something else also? :)

    I'd be very surprised if you got in... /: Sorry, but a 1900 is not on par for Yale... Good luck though

    Yale uses a holistic approach. Your Sats are a small part of your app, don't worry.
