    I bet you'll get in. You've got good ec's, good SAT scores, good grades despite a rigorous courseload. As always, a certain amount of it always comes down to luck. . .schools like wharton could literally drop every student they accept, take the next 550, drop them, take the next 550, drop them, take the next 550 and still have kids with essentially the same stats. That being said, I think it would be hard to be in a more competitive position than you are in. I'm not in Huntsman but I have several friends who are and you're stats are in line with theirs. The trick is, so many of the slots are already filled since huntsman accepts about half of it's students ed. Good luck

    To be honest, Chinese is not an easy language to learn.

    But with Rocket Chinese, learning to speak Chinese fluently and confidently is not that hard.

    One of my friend from Malaysia tried it out and he can now understand what I'm talking about when I speak in Chinese.

    Sometimes, he speak with me in Chinese when he feels to and it really helps him to improve by practicing.

    It's a really good learning course to look at.
