I'm a senior at a laboratory school in Missouri, it's considered the best school in the region. They don't offer honors or AP classes but allow us to take dual enrolment courses at Missouri State. They also only have unweighted GPA, and do not rank the students.

I transferred to this school junior year, but before I attended a public school, where I took all honors classes and 3 AP classes.

-SAT: 1240 (not submitting)

-Dual enrollment classes: Precalculus, World History, (will take biology this spring)
-Class Rank: n/a out of 25

-Pathfinders 6 years (like girl scouts but church-based)

    You should have a good shot. Crazy how different the rest of Missouri is from STL/KC. When I first saw no APs I was really surprised that they didn't have any.

    I'd say your chances are pretty good. Having come from a small school myself I can vouch for the "leniency" offered when you don't have as many opportunities for AP or Honors. And a class of 25?? Wow, I thought my class was small at 92 :lol:

    BTW, are you planning on doing pre-med with your Biology degree?
