Becuase you attend a "very prestigious magnet high school," you are expected to do more, which you have not. Therefore, your chances are a lot lower; around 25%....Sorry. You could enroll at a community college?

It depends... ur school may not offer lots of APs just cause it has a good rep. It sounds to me like you're in at Tufts. UT definite. Others are maybes.

I got into Tufts this yr with a 1440 (740m 700v) and about a 710 avg SAT II, but I did so under early decision. I also had a very focused ec's on music, like, everything I did was music (including the essay). But I'm from CA.
