    I'd say pretty good, but you still can't know for sure if you'll get accepted or not. I applied to 2017-2019 didn't get to the last stage tho, but I'll be applying again to 2018-2020 and hopefully I get in

    Thank you! Do you know when the applications open up? I'm kind of afraid for my GPA though...

    that depends on your national committee, ours starts in January (Egypt). Don't worry, your national committee will surely know if you'll fit in or not, your extracurriculars can overweigh your GPA

    Please don't have very high hopes, cause if you get rejected, you'll be devastated. Remember, the world is full of opportunities although UWC is one of a kind, the world won't end if you don't get in.
