Without considering anything else, do you think someone with a 3.3 unweighted gpa and 1330/1600 sat with sat twos : math1 750 and physics 600.....would get into emory? (no ap's)

Now what if this person has great everything else, like passions/hooks/essays/etc...?

    Depends on rigor of curriculum and lots of other things, but you specifically say no ap's....Assuming they are offered at this "someone's" school, Emory's incoming class usually comes in with an average of 5-7 AP's.....IMO this would be a reach school....

    "without considering anything else" is not a formula that's gonna work with your stats.
    if you had a 1600/1600, then maybe.
    you really don't want a school that would NOT consider anything else anyway.

    yea you're right.

    and yea ap's are offered at my school but i did not take any...but i took the highest classes offered which are close to honors classes they are accelerated. my school has different levels like lever 1 is easiest (for mentally retarded people), level 2 is for pretty slow people level 3 is for average people and level 4 is for acceleraed preparation..then comes honors and ap.
