was wondering - I am class of 2021 and I am interested in wake as well but I am not in the top 10% of my class as my school is EXTREMELY competitive. I have demonstrated interest in Wake (I’ve done an interview and emailed about touring and she actually mentioned how she appreciated my demonstrated interest) - my stats are decent with a 4.21 weighted gpa (we don’t do unweighted) and 7 AP classes total after HS. I am also Native American and half African American, if that means anything. I am a very thoughtful writer and I have a lot of important extracurriculars such as piano and yearbook that I am passionate about and I want to be a writer and study film. I don’t want the top 10% of my class to be a dealbreaker , although I am a bit worried. I am top 25% of my Class although that probably doesn’t mean anything . Thank you4 replies
