    wow, you got a lot of stuff under your belt. but i think your GPA and test scores could be a little bit higher. have you taken the ACT? some kids do better on ACT than SAT and vice versa. and then there's some kids who don't do well on either...like me...:smile: anyway, you look very good in all other areas. just keep truckin'

    I think that if you continued to do well and school and picked up your test scores, you would have a real good chance. Just my opinion though. Pick up some SAT or ACT books.

    I think the same as what others are posting:
    The application looks decent. But there is likely to be A LOT of candidates with extremely similar stats. You may be falling into the mid-pack of the average candidate group.

    neo: are you female?

    Also, your test scores are a little low. In fact, I think you might get a letter saying they are "not competitive at this time." Bring up the SAT!

    I don't know that being raised in Japan will be that much of a hook for you. There are lots of kids at AFA born/raised in foreign countries, many of them children of service members, some representing their own governments.
