Try, but don't get your hopes up.

Good luck.

You have great stats... and the ballet thing will give you a great advantage (falls into the "special talents" and "EC passion" categories). Besides, I'm not too sure how many ballet dancers, who are part of a company and teach apply to these schools. I think you'll stand out.
Good luck.

I'm almost certain WUSTL combines subscores for the ACT. That's what my friends tell me anyway. If this were the case--and if my math is right--you'd have a 34 according to WUSTL. Hurray!

No, you're not foolish to think that. The truth is, you have great stats, but there's no way any of us can know for sure whether you have a "chance."

Good luck :)
