    What is your GPA? If your GPA is above a 3.7 or you are in the top 10% you can petition. If you don't fall into either of those categories, you need to raise your SAT score score or you won't get in.

    oh sorry i forgot to add that. i have a 92.13 i dont know exactly what that is in a 4.0 scale but someone told me it was around a 3.7

    I would imagine that is around a 3.7, but you need to figure out exactly what IU recalculates it as. If you ask admissions, they will tell you. If you hav e at least a 3.7, then you can petition. I don't know what percentage of petitions get accepted, but I will tell you this. I have met many people who petitioned for Direct Admission; I have yet to meet someone who was denied their petition. I'm sure they exist and are probably less open about it, but the point is, don't think you have no chance if you have to petition. Granted, your chances are probably better if you exceed the test score, but fall slightly below the GPA/Rank.
