Your SATs are excellent. I dont think you need to worry about retaking them.

Looking good. Apply ED if it is your first choice and you do not need to worry about money. Start looking for some match/safety type schools that have a better selectivity just in case your lottery ticket does not come up.

Yeah, thanks for your help. I'm also looking at: Northwestern, Dartmouth, and Williams (and a few safety schools).
