Hi guys! I was just wondering if I would at least have a chance at Upenn through early decision even with my low gpa.

GPA: 3.93W; My freshman and sophomore gpas were not good, but my junior year gpa was around a 4.6/5.0.
SAT I: 2330(800 Math, 770 CR, 750 Writing)
SATII: 800 Math I and Math II, 780 Physics
Senior Year schedule:
AP Lit IV
AP Macroeconomics
AP Physics C
AP Calculus
AP Prob. and Stat.
AP Spanish
EC's:
FBLA: member for 4 years, and hold an officer position
MADE: member for four years, volunteered for 50+ hours and hold an officer position
Economics Club: member for three years, hold an officer position
ASHA for education: member for three years
National Honor Society member
Volunteered at local hospital for fifty plus hours
Received an internship over the summer
Took a Rutgers marketing class over the summer and got an A
Also I played a unique indian drum for the last three years
Volunteered at local temple for twenty plus hours
Worked at Cold Stone for the past two years
Played Rec. basketball this year

I was thinking about applying to Upenn early decision (wharton, cas and seas) and then NYU early decision II(stern). If you guys can chance me, that would be great.

    Pretty good shot. Good luck with the essays, and just make sure that Penn is your first choice if you go ED.

    I think you have a good shot. Just remember, you can only apply to ONE of the four undergraduate schools OR a coordinated dual-degree program. You CAN'T apply to "wharton, cas and seas" as you labeled in your post.
