Recommendations: One will be from my 9, 11, (12) math teacher who is also my academic team coach. He knows me very well. Another will be from my Physics teacher who is also my Science Olympiad, Science Bowl, and Debate Team coach. My counselor recommendation will be personal but not incredibly outstanding.

Extenuating Circumstances:

Small, rural town
Largest high school in state

The reason my GPA is so low is because of two classes in middle school that contributed towards my high school GPA. I received a B and a C in these classes. During this period, I struggled with severe depression and have struggled with it throughout high school.

Additional Info:

I have taken the ACT 3 times. Once in 6th grade for DUKE TIP, twice sophomore year. My next score will almost certainly be a 33. Will taking it anymore be significantly detrimental to my chances?

Thank you very much!
