Where can I get in?

mellowyellowwwmellowyellowww Registered User Posts: 8 New Member
3.3uw/3.6w (bad, but it's because I moved freshman year)
1300 SAT
Vice President of Save the Children club
ITS
Yearbook Editor

These are the colleges I want to get into:
Applying ED: Boston University (DID A 2 WEEK SUMMER CAMP)
New York University
Bentley University
Pepperdine University
Bryn Mawr
Smith College
Syracuse University
George Washington University
UT Austin
Baylor University

Do I have a chance? I'm taking 5 AP classes this year (senior year), so do those even matter? I moved freshman year and it wasn't until junior year when my grades got better.

Freshman Year: 3.0uw/3.46w
Sophomore Year: 3.3/3.5
Junior Year: 3.6/4.0

    You should compare your GPA and SAT with other students who got into each school. Also, run the NPC on each school and see whether you and your parents are okay with the results.

    Can you tell us which of these schools you consider to be a safety, or do you have other schools for safeties?

    What state are you from and do you have any hooks that would make most of these schools overlook your gpa?

    My rank is 211 out of 400, which is also really bad.
  • mellowyellowwwmellowyellowww Registered User Posts: 8 New Member
    My high school is very difficult tho. And also, if my gpa is bad due to moving, will colleges care? My gpa has improved.
  • mellowyellowwwmellowyellowww Registered User Posts: 8 New Member
    I haven't taken any AP tests but I've taken all the classes because I want to take the classes again in college.

    I will take a guess:
    Syracuse Reach
    Bentley, Baylor, Emerson possible high-match
  • mellowyellowwwmellowyellowww Registered User Posts: 8 New Member
    Syracuse is considered a reach school? I considered it to be one of the ones I could get into.
  • mellowyellowwwmellowyellowww Registered User Posts: 8 New Member
    My gpa is 3.3uw/3.6w with a 1300 SAT
    My rank is 211/400
    I have tons of extra curriculars
    Could I get into Boston University? I'm applying ED. Also, I did a 2 week summer challenge program at Boston University this summer. Out of all my regular, ea, or ed schools... which one can I get into????
