Culture involvement: native dance, language translator for school district etc..
Several awards from departments
Culture awards
A lot more stuff that I'm too lazy to list but I dedicate alot of time to (especially community service)
Does this help?: Pomona Water Polo and swim coach called me and e-mailed me several times but its DIII, he said he has added my name to the list of Polo applicants. He also checks up on my applications. The swim coach there also did the same. Both sports sent me big, huge packets of information regarding the program? Is this a boost?
Do I have a chance at these school (rank in order of personal choice):
Pomona College (Claremont, Ca)
Cornell
UC Berkeley (I know this is a long shot, but it never hurts to try)
UC Santa Cruz
UC Irvine
University of Oregon

I know my SAT scores are my downfalls and I want to know if I have a shot at these colleges with my stats. Can they just eliminate me based on my SAT scores? YOUR RESPONSE IS HIGHLY APPRECIATED

-Sorry didn't feel like proofreading so there's lots of mistakes.

Oregon should be a slam dunk and UC Santa Cruz virtually so.

A good shot at UC Irvine.

The others looke like quite a reach unless you're intending to play water polo or swim on the collegiate level and are good enough.

Thanks for your comment, any one else please? Anyone can tell me about Pomona?

pomona is really hard to get into, but UC Berkeley is known for taking tons and tons of ASB presidents. I know that's kinda random, but maybe that will lift your spirits.
