Hey-
I know you all have seen a million of these, but maybe you could give me some idea of where I might fit in here. I will be applying Early Decision to Northwestern this fall.
SAT I: 1400 (750 Math)
Plan to take Writing, Physics, and Math IC in Oct.
4.0 unweighted GPA
Rank: 1 of 120 in a small public school
Will be taking AP English, AP Calc (Studying for BC by myself), AP Bio, Honors Spanish IV, and I have intro to microeconomics and intro to macroeconomics courses at Michigan State U this year.
I have had a very rigorous schedule (the toughest that my school offers) but I don't know if coming from such a small public school would hurt me.
My ECs:
Varsity tennis four years
JV Golf three, varsity golf one year,
played concert piano for eleven years, NHS,
Business Professionals of America, serving as a vice president for the state of Michigan, Model UN (president of club this year) Tennis team captain sophomore year, Quiz Bowl and Quiz Busters, and I have had two jobs, one for two years, the other for a year working at a golf course and the other as a secretary type job.
If you have any idea how I might do, please let me know, I would really appreciate it. Thanks

Unlike a lot of colleges, Northwestern actually uses ED to admit those it believes will be at the higher end of their admittees overall rather than admitting a number who may be borderline but will definitely come because they are applying ED. Nevertheless, you are in that higher end and should have a very good chance.

Thanks for the info guys. And yes, if I can get my scores just a litter lower over the next summer, I was planning on playing golf for them. I heard they have an amazing indoor facility so I could practice year round.
