What are my chances of getting into Boston University?

My GPA is a 3.7. I've been taking honors classes since my sophmore year. As a senior, I will be taking two APs & two honors. I plan on going into advertising, business, marketing. I took my PSATs and got a 1310 and I'm taking my SATs next month. If I get high 1200s, low 1300s is there a possibility I'll be accepted into BU? What are your suggestions in what I need to qualify and my chances of getting scholarships? It's pretty expensive, isn't it?

Also, I'm ranked 16 of 274. I've done community service. I'm also a minority. My grades in math are average. English and science are my strengths. What else are they looking for for me to be able to go there? What SAT IIs should I take?

Chances are very good. Take the writing,and a science. On the web site it states what the school wants in an applicant. If English and science are strengths, you should consider taking the ACT. You get the scores you think you'll get, I would be shocked if you don't get in.

Hollaratme - you're good for BU, but it would be awesome if you bring your GPA a little bit. At least to a 3.4~5...then you should be fine. what is your AIM?? i was trying to contact you but i couldnt...i'll give you some advices on BU and GW
since i got into both and you seem very interested in both schools...e-mail me at
