I'm a high school junior who is very stressed over all this college stuff already. I have visited NYU, George Washington, Georgetown, American, Northwestern, and Washington in St. Louis. I'm visiting Columbia this weekend and will be going to Boston University and Emory soon. I hope somebody can help give me some kind of idea of my chances. Here are my stats so far:

PSAT: 1370 (700 math, 670 verbal). Hopefully over 1400 on SAT, I've been doing a lot of review in my Kaplan book.

SAT II: 720 on Math IC, 620 on Math IIC, taking American History and Writing this June.

GPA: 3.8 (93 average at extremely competitive upstate New York high school, top 10% of class)

Classes: AP World (5 on exam)
AP Calc AB (take exam in May)
AP American (take exam in May)
Advanced Chemistry
Enriched English (every year of HS)
Band and Choir every year

Regents: 99 English, 98 World History, 98 Spanish, 94 Biology, 98 on Math A and B exams

Next year: AP Statistics and AP Physics, 4 elective English classes

Extracurriculars:
13 years of piano lessons
3 years of voice lessons
In school honors jazz chorus
6 years of alto saxophone lessons
NYSSMA Area all state for voice for grade of 99, hopefully 100 this year
Numerous choir groups outside of school
School Yearbook
Temple Youth Group for 4 years
State Award in Johns Hopkins Talent Search

I'm sure there are more I can't think of right now...

I appreciate your help!

Also wanted to add another extracurricular; I started my own internet business last year with $8000 in revenue and $4000 in profit in the last year alone.

I am interested in majoring in either business or journalism/communications, possibly doing a double major.

The best advice I can give: Don't use Kaplans to review

What's wrong with Kaplan?
