So, I know my chances are slim, to say the least, but is there any chance at all? You can be honest with me! I apologize for the missing ACT and SAT scores. I just took them this week. I'm a junior in high school!
UW GPA: 3.95
Weighted GPA: 4.43
From: Rural North Carolina
ACT: Awaiting Score
SAT: Awaiting Score
SATII: Planning to take Literature, US History, and Math I or Math II.
Dual Enrollment: By the time I graduate high school I will have an Associate in Art Degree and 70 credit hours completed. So far, I haven't made anything less than an "A" in my college courses, and don't plan to.

Clearly, I think my biggest feat is being two years ahead in school. How much will this help me? And how important are the SAT and ACT scores? I think I did OK but I won't know until I have the scores in my hands! Thanks very much for your honest opinions!
