Hey, I'm also worried about my chances... can anyone give me some odds?
2130 SAT (2170 superscored)
3.4 GPA unweighted, 5.1 weighted (out of 6.0 scale, with A in AP being 6.0 and A in honors being 5.0)
6% class rank (class of about 700)
APs: European History (3), Biology (5), Spanish Language (5), American History (4), Calculus AB (5), Chemistry (cancelled score), English Language (5), English Literature (Pending), Calculus BC (Pending), Environmental Science (Pending), Macroeconomics/Government (Pending)
As a senior, I am taking 4 AP's and 2 Cooperative Diversified Education classes, which allow me to leave school at 12:15 to go to my job for at least 15 hours a week; however, i have heard that colleges frown upon this... not really sure
National Merit Condemnation
National Hispanic Scholar
My essay was good, based on the opinions of a few trusted people that have been working in the English department at my school... one told me to just drop it and submit it, because she would not change one thing on it
However, my extra curricular activities are pretty weak; I relied on my importance in a Maccabi Tzair Jewish Leaders program in my city, but besides that, only my participation in Mu Alpha Theta (Math club) and an arts program for one theatre show could be shown.
Also... how good is UNC on merit scholarships?
Thanks for the help!
