I'm just got my last SAT2 score back, and i feel horrible about it. Please take a look at my stats and tell me what you think. I applied early to Penn's School of Engineering

Thai-American citizen
Class rank: 106/736
GPA:3.5 UW, 4.3W
Toughest Courseload possible every year
this year i'm takin every AP class:
Art History, Spanish 4, Eng 4, Physics B, Calc AB, Government, Macroeconomics
At one of the top public schools in Houston, TX

SAT1: 1500 (780M/720V)
SAT2: Math 2C: 690, Biology-M: 700, Writing: 680

AP's (they suck too)
US History: 4
Statistics: 4
World History: 3
Comp Sci: 3
Eng Lang: 3

Cross Country for 4 years
Student Council
Couple of other Random clubs, I didn't really have any leadership positions

Couple of hundred hours of community service

Some pretty good rec's and imho some pretty good essays. I went to Harvard SSP program last summer and took Bio. My essays were over my summer at harvard and my work in a bio research lab.

EDIT* I'm payin full if that makes a difference (prolly not thought)

Man i'm depressed now

i also believe i had a pretty good interview with an alumni if that makes any difference

I think Penn puts some pretty heavy stock in the interviews and EC stuff, so don't worry. Apparently, they also put a lot of stock into whether you want to go or not, so ED will help you a lot.

If you get deferred, make sure you write them a followup to make sure they know you're still interested.

My prediction would be that you get deferred, then accepted in the spring.
