I didn't apply to Princeton ED because I didn't know it was "the place for me" until I visited in December. Now I know, and really want to go, but I wouldn't mind going to Yale or William&Mary. Anyway, do you think I have a shot at any of these schools?

class rank - 1/187 - GPA (weighted) = 100.8
SAT - 1390 (730v, 660m)
SATII - 800 USHist, 670 chem,writing,bio, and 660 mathIC
My school only offers 3 APS - I took USHist last year and got a 5; I am currently taking Eng and Calc AB

figure skating - singles and pairs - takes up mucho time so I don't have a lot of "school" activites

oboe - I made all-state this year and have been 1st chair in my district for the past 2 years

altar server for my church (laugh if you want)

You have a good chance if you bump your SAT 1 up a little and really focus on your figure skating in your essay and app.
