What are my chances of getting into these schools?

Tom234Tom234 Registered User Posts: 3 New Member
Hi everyone, my goal is to try and get into an undergraduate business program (Ross, Stern, Wharton, etc.)
Here are my stats:
I go to a top five private school in the state of Michigan
3.6 gpa uw 4.3 gpa weighted
36 composite on the ACT
AP's: Stats, Calc, Euro, Bio, Chem, English, and US history. All my other classes throughout high school were honors
EC's: 2 years JV basketball, 2 years Varsity golf, Founded and president of business club and investment club, 4 years of Sierra Club, around 150-200 hours of volunteer work, and created my own basketball summer camp for kids with special needs.

1) Do I have a chance of getting into U of M Ross, Wharton ( I know it will be a reach), NYU Stern, or Cornell (Dyson)?
2) If not which other colleges should I apply to?

    I think Wharton and Dyson will be really really hard since you have such a low GPA (for these schools not in general). Your ACT will help, but there are going to be many people with 3.8 35s who may be more appealing with stellar extracurriculars. NYU should give u a decent chance, your ACT is absolutely amazing and that will help you so much since they will know that you are poised to do well in college.

    Ross would be a low reach, but being instate will definitely help.
