I think I have a good shot at UMBC. I recognize my SAT scores are a little low when compared to UMCP's average but i feel i make up for it in everything else. My gpa's high becasue I work hard in school and care deeply about the classes i take. I like getting involved in school activities and helping out whenever i can. I do not feel the SAT represents my full potential and i hope these schools can look past it and recognize what i am fully capable of.
