I go to a good public school in Palm Beach County, Florida. It is ranked number six in the county.

High School unweighted/weighted GPA: 3.85/4.34 ranking 27/524
UF GPA: 4.35
ACT Math 28
ACT English 23
ACT Science 33
ACT Reading 29

TOEFLL: not yet taken

The reason why I believe that my ACT English score is that low is because my mother tongue language is German.

    Also from palm beach county. You really need to bring your ACT up to stand a good chance. Your EC's are numerous, but doesn't make you anyone unique. Brown looks for unique.

    ^Agreed. Without the ACT score, Brown won't be much of a possibility.

    I'm from the same area and never knew that the schools were ranked... Regardless, acceptances this year in Palm Beach county weren't very high. The ACT needs to go up to stand a chance. I know your English section is bad because it's your 2nd language, but it really does need to go up.

    1) Low SAT and rank, and 2) ECs that aren't compelling enough to make Brown want to overlook 1. As it stands now, I'd say your chances are low.
