I am an OOS.
I have a 29 ACT (33 english, 25 math, 31 reading, 28 science, 32 combined english/writing)
I submitted my SAT but it is significantly lower (620 CR, 610 M, 710 W)
I have a 91.06 weighted GPA (school doesn't do 4.0 scale)
I have a lot of extracurriculars and leadership positions (examples include student government, National Honor Society, and volunteer work)
I have taken a rigorous course load and have a upward trend from freshmen-senior year.
I wrote an essay in Essay C about a special circumstance (illness) that kept me out of school this year for 3 weeks. I went on to make the best grades I've made in high school.
What are my chances as an OOS?? Will my special circumstance make me stand out?
