Now I realize there is no right or wrong answer to this, but I'm wondering what you people think. I am a Junior thinking about colleges and have the following stats:
SATS: 1470 (780M, 690V)
PSATS: 1520 (780M,740V) and 690 Writing
this gives me a 221 psat index score so im at least a national merit semi-finalist i guess
GPA is about 4.6 weighted, I've taken all highest classes possible (Honors/AP) except for Gifted Chemistry last year....that drop of chemistry took my class rank and threw it down to 25...but thats out of 730 kids.

Activities:
President of Junior Achievement Club
2nd year as treasurer of Jewish youth group
2 years of FBLA
1 year of french club
national honors society
math league

i've played piano for 7+ years (and i consider myself pretty good)

my main accomplishment is an online business i started by myself last year that has grossed over $10,000. i had other businesses in the past, but none this big.


is there anything i should do? besides the obvious sat IIs and such?

what are my chances at schools like:

NYU, CMU, UPENN(wharton?), etc... how do you think the business will help..or not?

also, should i retake the sats for a higher score than 1470?

Hey, if you're already doing pretty well in business, just stay in business. You don't need to go to college.
