What are my chances of getting into USC? (University of Southern California)?

I'm a senior at my high school and currently, my overall weighted GPA is 4.56, unweighted is 4.0. I am currently ranked #1 out of 400+ students. I'm a active member in 4 clubs, and I am the president of vice president of 3 of those clubs. I play on the Men's Varsity Tennis team. My SAT 1 scores are:

Math: 640



My SAT 2 scores are:

Math 2: 580

US History: 630

I have taken many AP and Honors classes. I passed my AP US History Test with a 3 and my AP Language & Composition test with a 4.

Do you think I can get into USC applying under Biochemistry with Biological Sciences as my alternative major?

    Everything looks good except for your Critical Reading score. Can you retake the SAT?

    I think your chances are really good. Despite what people mayn think, USC is not really that hard to get into. Also, I would reccommend that you apply to some top-ranked schools. They may be a reach, but it will be worth the chance because you've definitely proved yourself to be a well-rounded student which is exactly what they're looking for. Here's a link to USC's admission requirements. You are almost over-qualified for USC. Good luck with everything!

    i wasnt a smarty like you:) but i have a friend that said his friend back at home applied for usc and he had a 4.0 and good SAT scores and he still didnt get in. so im not sure. i didnt realize how hard it would be to get into USC. i would still try ESPECIALLY since your GPA and your SAT scores are high.

    Getting into USC is not difficult. It's paying for USC that's the hard part. Good Luck.
