Penn State - Gimme
Purdue - Gimme
Carnegie Mellon - Match, good chance
Michigan - Great chance
GA Tech - Great chance
Columbia - Far Reach, little chance (class rank too low, SAT is too low, nothing really stands out)

You have NO awards? You're in so many clubs yet you have NO awards? NONE? Fix it. Play in some junior music festivals around town, those are easy. Try and get fire department to give you something. Not even a "Coach's Award" for soccer? You have to have something.
