    I'm a junior at a medicore school (avg. SAT 1060) of about 2,800 students in georgia. What would be chances to get into the oxford college with one of the scholarships (2-year and 4-year awards)?

    my basic stats are-

    SAT: 1320 (660 each and it was my first time) retaking in june and aiming for a 2100 (750 Cr, 700 math and 650 writing)

    ACT: 31 (all subsections 32+ except science) retaking in june aiming for a 33..the current avg. of English, reading and math..lol

    SAT II's: taking in may...from the real's book I got an 800 in US history, a 720 in Math IIC and a 660 in physics

    rank/gpa: 6/400 (should be 4 or 5 after this semester) 95.5/3.976 uw ?w

    Classes: 3 gifted, 1 honors chorus and PE/health freshmen year 93 gpa
    3 gifted, 1 AP (5 on world exam)german and chorus sophmore year 97 GPA
    2 gifted, 2 AP, german II and chorus this year 98 GPA
    4 AP (gov't and econ count as one), 1 honors (german III) and chorus next year.... probably about a 100 GPA..lol

    EC's: VP-elect of NHS and 3 year member(including next year), Prez-elect of Mu Alpha Theta and 3 year member (ditto), Mock trial-attorney for two years, Student govt-VP of student body this year...hopefully president next, scholars bowl 4 years (no major awards) and Odyssey of the Mind for two years (1st in region 4th in state) my sophmore year

    Fine Arts: Vocal Music freak- gonna be a 4-year all stater, selected as a finalist for governor's school in vocal music (only 12 men..6 basses make it from the state), 4 year honor choir nominee and lots of other programs and honor choirs

    other: Volunteer at local coop (2 hours every two weeks...nm but better than nothing) and lots of church music/leadership stuff. Also... i know all of my recommendations are going to be amAzing!

    prosepctive major:political science and studies
    btw- I'm a URM...african american male

    the average sat score for a two-year scholarship at oxford is a 1350, so maybe retake the sats to see if you can up it some to get above that average. your extra curriculars look great, so if you can up the sat score, this will give you a great shot at a scholarship. but then again, i think 31 act is in their scholarship range...so yeah i really think u have a good shot good luck!
