Little chance at Penn, pton or swarthmore unless you get those SAT II's way up to make up for your lackluster SAT I score.

words like "lackluster" aren't really appreciated... it's not helpful to break people down... 1130 for junior year is fine, my brother had a 1090 junior year and ended up with a 1380 and admitted to harvard among other schools... keep workin hard man-

A 1090 to a 1380 is a HUGE jump. That's an extreme case. I don't think Mzhang was trying to break anyone down, but a 1130 is really low for Princeton/Swarthmore/Penn, you have to admit... and junior year is right before senior year... so he doesn't have much time to improve that (he can improve, but by hundreds of points? unlikely). We're all just trying to be realistic here. So, what anyone will say with your current stats, Confusedinpa, is that Princeton, Penn, and Swarthmore are all big reaches. The EC's don't stand out either. Bring up those scores a lot and you might be in the running.
