SAT = 1340
ACT = 33
No SAT II's yet
GPA = 4.0
No class rank @ school, no weighted GPA's

Will have taken 7 honors/AP classes by end of senior year

EC's included president of Model UN, mentoring, foreign language tutoring, work at local newspaper, editor on school newspaper, managing editor (this year) of yearbook and editor-in-chief next year, various leadership roles

Would like to get into following schools:
Carleton (ED)
Macalester
Oberlin
Grinnell
U. of Chicago
Pomona (I know it's not Midwest)
Reach: Swarthmore
Safety: St. Olaf

Sorry, I forgot to add my weakness: I will only have two laboratory sciences (honors bio and chemistry), and one non-lab science (semester of astronomy and semester of geology in "Earth Science")

Good chance at all of those schools although your courseload looks a little weak. does your school not offer a lot of Honors/ APs or you just didnt bother to take them?

School offers app. 9 "real" AP/Honors class, and then there are about 20 awful online ones that are poorly taught, and overall, hellacious; I will also take classes at local university senior year
