Your grades and rank are solid. Your ACT seems a little low, as does your Math SAT II score. However, with the EC's, leadership, and sports you've got, you probably have a real shot at WUSTL.

If someone at WUSTL admissions asked one of your teachers to write scholarship recommendations for you specifically, I'd say you have an extremely good chance.
