Here goes-

Washington University is my number 1 choice. I am mostly worried about my scores. I have a 30 ACT and a 1390 SAT. I am taking SAT's on Saturday. I have an 800 Writing satII, however. I have a 4.0 (unweighted--all A+'s) and I am 4/462. I will have 9 AP's by graduation. As for ec's, they're pretty normal, nothing special--Pres. and founder of club, v.p. of JCL, student gov, mock trial, varsity gymnastics (9-10), club gymnastics (9-10), volunteering (315+hours), etc. I am a legacy because my cousin went there, although I'm not sure how much of a legacy this really is.

Evaluation would be appreciated! Thanks

no, it's not a joke? why did you think so?

You are more than qualified to attend Wash U. I'd expect you to get in, although you never really know. Don't stress. I have the 800 Writing Sat II also (looks good, huh)?

You are in, IMO why are you even stressing

You're very likely indeed to get in; if you'd applied ED it would have been a lock. Why so late on the SAT IIs?

Why is he/she guaranteed in at WUSTL?

I mean its not like WUSTL is a easy school. I agree cantwait4colleg has a good chance, but I fail to see why she's "havin' a joke?"

Thanks everyone. I appreciate the comments. I agree with Abz1986 that I am not guaranteed--maybe a few years ago I would have been, but nowadays, nothing is for sure. I am not taking SAT II's in January, I am actually taking the SAT I again. I know it sounds stupid, but I'm doing it for scholarships. A lot of scholarships aren't due until March and April, and I think they put a lot of emphasis on test scores.

Thanks again
