I am a senior and I currently have a 2.8 gpa and was wondering what colleges would possibly accept me. I am a hispanic male living in New York with a sister in her freshman year of college, and a mother who is only a high school graduate. My SAT grade was a 1740 (1140 out of 1600), I am retaking this test October 1st. My ACT grade was a 25.
In total (Junior and Senior year), I have taken 6 AP classes and 1 college level class. I have been a varsity wrestler for 4 years, I am a member of model congress, the garden club, I began writing for a small newspaper in my city, I might become the head of the yearbook committee this year, and I am also attempting to begin a DECA organization in my school (I hope to join it in the college I eventually attend).
I have worked at a beach club as a cook two summers ago, and have worked as a camp counselor this past summer.
Are there any good, respectable colleges that would accept me? Community College is NOT an option.
