If you raised that SAT score I think you'd have a pretty decent shot. Have you tried test prep? I used Kaplan's Verbal SAT book, and it raised my verbal the equivalent of 80 pts. from my PSAT! Other than that, you've got good ECs and awards, and your GPA is on-par.

Your SAT sucks. Get it up around 1200 at least and you're in.

Also I am LD ( Learning Disabled). I am in college prep classes some honers and one college level class. I have no idea what colleges even think about LD's.

If you haven't already, you should try to get extra time for your SAT. For the first time this year, college board doesn't say "Nonstandard Administration," so the colleges have no idea. To get this, you need to have a diagnosed LD and have your special services administrator write vouch for you on an official applicatioin. Good luck to you; I hope you get in.
