    I am no expert but I would say your GPA is right around their average but you definitely have a good course rigor with a lot of AP's and honors. However you SAT math and CR is a 1270 while Emorys 25% is a 1280 and 75% is 1470. So your SAT is a little lower than their 25% which are normally the scores of kids who have legacy and who have connections which could hurt you. It seems like your EC's are really good.

    Again im no expert but you defiantly have a shot. I would say maybe a low reach???

    Anyone correct me if im wrong.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I honestly gave up on SAT because it has been really hard to improve even if i studied.
    I'm taking the ACT this december, and I'm really trying to hard to prepare well for it!

    No problem. I think that may be the only thing holding you back but good luck with the ACT. I am in a similar situation as you as my ACT is a 33 but my GPA is only a 3.4 but with an extremely strong upward trend.
    I like to think of it as a crapshoot. You never know what their looking for.
