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)
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
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
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?
