WPI,is an horrible school! I lived in Worchester for years of my life, trust me, i should know. Apply to schools like NJIT, Rochester Institute of Technology, and University of Illinois at Urbaigna-Champaign. Other than that, I think you have pretty good chances. All those universities want diversity.

Thanks a lot.Can you describe how WPI is horrible.It is ranked 51 in u.grad programs

Pgs1300 (Pgs1300), it can be ranked 51, but it is a horrible school. They have the worst campus dormitories, there professors are of poor quality, and there cafeteria even stinks. They probably have a high ranking, because of there research criteria. I would recommend you not to choose that university. Good Luck

Your math SAT score looks great and your SAT II's are uniformly impressive. I would think that if you are a non-native speaker of English, then your average verbal SAT score will be viewed more leniently.
I don't know much about the colleges on your list, so I can't comment specifically about them. I think, all in all, though, your chances are very good at many colleges. Good luck.
