Hey you all. I need to know if I should stop wasting my dreams on going to Columbia and NYU Here is my record to date:

9th Grade:
Joined a bio club in the Bronx where we won 3rd place (on least I got an award)
Took honors classes (four main subjects every year)O
Worked at a camp during the summer

10th Grade:
Honors classes
Building with Books club

11th Grade:
History A.P.
Volunteering in Hospital

My GPA is a 94, I have 32 credits, took all the regents I had to take (and passed them)
I am probably ranked #1 or 2, (they don't tell us till next year)
I took PSAT and got 990, (reallly bad), but I am working my butt off for at least a 1300 on the SAT 1 and will take ACT and SAT II's
Also, I will take four A.P's next year

Please help me, thank you soooooo much, and Happy New Year!!!

it seems like you have the work ethic to get in, but u really need to bring up your standardized tests, since they are the most important.

You might be the first valedictorian to score under 1000!

Keep going. If you want it, you will get it. Just don't slack off AT ALL for the rest of high school. Like "knowitall" said, get your standardized tests up and you should do fine. I got a horrible PSAT score and I'm working my but of too.
