Hi guys. Do you think I have a chance at either one of these schools applying regular decision? At NW, I said I would probably major in Political Science, and at Columbia, I said Urban Studies or PoliSci. What do you think? Be brutal if need be...

SAT: (took once, last April)- 750 verbal, 710 math
SAT II: Writing - 690 (taking it again Dec 6th)
Math IIC - ouch, 610
Literature - 650
APs: US History - 3, World History - 4, Lang - 5
GPA: 4.23 (weighted on 5.0 scale)
Rank: 8th out of about 500

5 AP classes this year, one honors French course

Class President (11th and 12th)
National Honor Society Vice President (12th)
Student Council (11th, 12th)
BETA Club (11th, 12th)
Mu Alpha Theta
Newspaper/Yearbook Staff
Tennis Team (9th, 10th, 11th)
Academic Decathlon (9th-11th): second place state team in an event (whether that is important, I do not know.)

Spent this summer interning for British Parliament in London for 8 weeks. Two previous summers: worked various jobs.

I guess my recs are good, I haven't seen them, so I don't know for sure. Same with my essays - no clue whether they are actually good.

Thanks for any feedback you can give me!

are you a minority? i don't get why bing04 said pack your bags, you are definitely not a sure thing. i think you have a good chance however, but definitely never a sure thing.

Nah, I'm just a plain old "middle-class" white girl from the suburbs. My mom isn't from America though, if that helps, although she's originally from an English-speaking country...
