This is a tough question; I am also trying to get into decent places like JHU, Penn, but I think SAT is still just part of the equation. I also had the same problem with math (680) but I did good on reading (780), writing (720).

Your SAT definitely qualifies you as it puts you in the middle 50% or higher for those schools, but the transcript is probably as important and/or even more important from what I ascertained during college visits (AP courses, honors, etc.) as well as your extracurricular activities.

Bottom line, from my reasoning a decent SAT score (2100+) gives you a chance at admission, but in order to separate yourself from the rest of the pack of 2100+ I would presume GPA, Extracurriculars, and essays would play a major role.

you should be very proud of yourself to get such a high score, especially on your reading section. dont worry im 10000% sure that YOU WILL BE ACCEPTED ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.

btw, i really wonder how u did it, so can you please tell us how you prepared for it? or is it that you love reading and read all the time??
