I have a 3.75 from Northwestern and I just got my score back today- 166. I'm disappointed but am trying to go over my options before I make the choice to re-take in June.
I'm interested in UMich, Cornell, G'town, Penn, possibly Cal and UCLA. Do I have any shot at these schools with my score as it is?
A little additional info about me:
Solid extracurrics (president of College Democrats at my school, French tutor, Tour Guide for my school, and a Peer Health Educator (I teach health workshops to highschool kids in public schools in Chicago).
I will have good recs and good essays.
I speak 3 languages in addition to English (2 fluently, 1 proficiently but am continually improving). I have lived abroad in 2 different countries for 8 years of my life and will incorporate that into essays (as an aside, I didn't go to American schools abroad or otherwise isolate myself from the cultures there, which is why I speak the languages fluently).
Thoughts? I may apply ED to one of these schools if it will help.
