I'm a junior in high school right now and I am an Asian male in Los Angeles

What are my chances with my statistics, I regretfully have slacked off quite a lot at school thus reflected in my low G.P.A. but hopefully my E.C. and SAT scores will balance it out and my personal statements are guaranteed to be unique and heartwarming.

I am applying as a minority and out of state student thus I am guessing my chances would be higher.

GPA:3.33
Weighted: 3.8
SAT I: 2200
SAT II BIO: 690
SAT II MATH II C: 750
SAT II LIT: 720
SAT II CHEM: 720

Once again I know my grades are average and mediocre at best but I have been to 8 schools in 3 different countries and I can speak 4 different languages and being Asian, I will be some what of a minority.

EC: Tennis Team and Tennis Captain, School Newspaper Staff, Hospital Volunteer, Dance Committee, Badminton, Visual Art 3D, Ceramics Award, National Merit, Senior Men and Women (Freshmen Orientation) Committee, Math Team

Feedback is appreciated

    I would say that you have a pretty good shot at getting in. as miche said they use weighted GPA and your sats are definitely good to get in. What school are you applying into?

    I believe the previous post was asking about which college (at Penn State) you were considering - as in, the College of Business, College of Communications, etc. Some are viewed as more competitive than others and thus tend to be harder to get into.
