wow...i feel stupid now for applying to princeton...but anyways ur test scores r pretty amazing. only thing is do u have any sports? i think u have a pretty good chance as long as u write essays that make urself stand out, 'cause although ur very good in academics there r thousands of applicants just like u, if not better. u have to make urself stand out

My friend got a 1370 sat 1, 790 us history sat 2, 670 writing sat 2, student body president, basketball team, a couple other minor things, and he was accepted to Princeton. This shows that you can get into princeton even if you didnt break the 1400's. Don't give up!
