I'm currently applying for UIUC's College of Business.
Unweighted GPA: 3.9
SAT: never taken; would it help if I did?
School doesn't rank
Most of my classes consist of honors or AP
Senior classes: H Accounting, H Pre-Cal, AP Comp., AP Physics B, AP Chinese, Ap Psych.(my other 2 AP's are Chem and US which were taken last year)
Key Club 11, 12
Asian Amer. Club 10, 11, 12
Church band 10 (I don't know if this counts since it wasn't for the high school)
Restaurant Worker 10
Assistant DJ 12
Community S. (hours total around 300)
Elementary School Tutor 11, 12
Church Cleaner 9, 10
Summer School Teacher Aide (Again, I don't know if this counts since it was done during the summer before my soph. year)
Certainly am NOT a strong essay writer.
Okay, so what are my chances of getting into UIUC's College of Business(planning to major in Accounting)? I understand that their program is among the most selective and the rate of acceptance is relatively low. I'm very worried about my EC's and the fact that I don't have much business experience, as you can see from my choices of clubs and classes. I'm writing essay #1 about how it's my goal to become an accountant, but as I said, my writing skills aren't that great.
By the way, my 2nd essay is on my experience tutoring kids. Do you think it would be inappropriate to do this as I'm applying to business?
