hmmm ... being an Okie should help. They don't have many from Muskogee in Newark. You've a good record in many regards although academically, you've left yourself a bit exposed. I'm betting you'll make it, but they'll have some discussion about your app, perhaps. Good luck.
Oklahoma and your work history helps, but GPA and ACT are both towards the 25% level for UDel. And without class rank and knowledge of your HS, UD may find it difficult to get a feel for the class difficulty. I wouldn't call it a reach, but probably a low match.
Out of curiousity, why UDel? I'm a parent, btw. A Delaware resident now, but grew up in Ponca City. Not many Oklahoma natives in this state.

- I love the east coast, I believe that the opportunities are immensely greater than if I stay close to home. I want to attend a large university and UDel is relatively affordable in comparison to schools of similar rank and size. The school is great, I'm pleased with everything I see.
- Orange Power! I cannot stand OU Football, I'm from Enid, so I tend to cheer for Oklahoma State.
Good to hear, and good luck. Nobody, I mean nobody, can fully understand what it's like to be a non-Sooner fan in Oklahoma except people who have gone through it. You find yourself put in a position where you end up saying such insane things as "well, we're MUCH better at wrestling, baseball and indoor track" (back in my day, unfortunately, the Cowboy basketball team was terrible).
