How likely am I to get into Cambridge as an American?
I'm currently an American HS student. I have/am going to take 18 AP tests. I have gotten 5s on all of my ap tests so far from sophomore year in calc bc, chem, and world. I am extremely confident in getting 5s on all of my 8 ap classes this year, I have taken the math 2, chem, bio, and physics subject tests and scored 800 on all of them. I have a 36 ACT score. I also have lab experience and research at a university bio lab where I may have my name published as a contributor in a published paper. Unfortunately, while my gpa is high, I have recieved a single c in calc bc. Considering all of this, what are my chances?55 replies
