I am applying for UNC (my dream school), ECU, App State, Meredith, Elon, and BYU (Provo). I have applied to half of these so far and I am really worried about my chances of getting in. I have a 3.8 unweighted gpa and a 4.44 weighted gpa. My top SAT scores equalled 1590 ( I know that is low) and my top ACT scores equalled 22. When I graduate I will have taken 6 AP classes but I could only submit 2 test scores because I only took two last year. I have had leadership positions in almost everything I do except NHS and Beta club, which I am members of both. I am also in FTA, I dance, and I am strongly involved in my church youth group. I have done some volunteer work and a bunch of community service. I also went to girls state. From everyone that looked over my essays (including students that go to those schools) my essays have been very good and show I have overcome challenges, which I hear is a good trait. I submitted an extra recomendation letter to UNC because that is where I really want to go. I have family alumni at UNC,ECU, and App state. Oh, and I live in NC.What are my chances of getting into each of these colleges?
P.S. I understand if you can't answer about BYU.
