To Acidburrito -- My advice, for what it's worth, would be to go ahead & apply. Your high SATs will put you in the running. One question - does your school rank students? If not, your chance of admission will be greater -- many colleges are statistically driven -- if your school does not rank, the college will report your rank as N/A -- but they will reap the advantage of your high SAT score. If your school does rank, and you are not in the top 10%, then it will hurt the college statistically if you are admitted. (this is not to imply that statistics are everything, certainly steller ECs, etc always help).
