    If the purpose of this is for showing off, forget it I've seen better among my fellow engineers. Get over yourself, 1/2 of my fellow Chemical Eng. were validictorians, and were not nerds anymore either, we rock the athletic seen.

    Otherwise I'd say you have a shot... A better SAT would definitely help. The Math section can be easily improved on.
