Hi I'm a senior who currently attend a very competitive school in my state and Northeastern is one of my top schools that I want to get into. I applied to the D'Amore McKim School of Business for Marketing. My current GPA is a 3.7 and my ACT score is a 27 (28 English, 28 Math, 25 Reading, 27 Science, 9 on the essay). I took:

Honors: American Literature I and II
English III and IV
Algebra I
Math Analysis I and II
World Cultures
US History I and II
French III (Also took regular I and II)

Physics B (3)
Calculus AB (4)
Calculus BC (N/A)
Microeconomics (N/A)

Introduction to computing (Syracuse Course)

Most of my community service hours are from tutoring kids from time to time and volunteering within the school and completed over 70 hours of community service hours. Also involved in (Interact Club, Computer Club, and other various clubs offered at my school).

Do I have a chance of getting in? Also possibly scholarship?

    I think it's a low reach. Your class rigor is good, but the ACT is too low even for EA. The average (CR+M) SAT last year I know was a 1413, which is about a 31-32 ACT. Your GPA and extracurriculars are good. If you do get accepted, you'll probably be in NUIN. Just don't expect too much or any merit aid. Only the top 25% of the entering class receives it. It would also help your situation if you were a full pay student.
