So, I'm in my junior year and just got 2250 on my SAT (M-800/CR-700/W-750). However, my GPA is pretty low (UW-2.8/W-3.3). This is because I was out for multiple surgeries and also tend to get sick, which has resulted in a high amount of absences (all excused). How are my chances at going to a 4-year university? I have exceptional grades in my Math/English/Engineering classes, but things like P.E./Music/Spanish/French (things you really need to be there to pass) have brought me down. I want to major in Computer and/or Petroleum Engineering. All answers/responses are appreciated!
-I have participated in sports each year (Football, Wrestling, and Baseball).
-I have over 300 community service hours.
-I attend a competitive high school.
-I take AP/Honors classes.
