Do I have a chance of getting into Rice with a 30 ACT?
I'm a transfer student: graduated high school early. I have a 3.9 GPA (4 is the highest), an Associate of Science in Mathematics, President of the Robotics club at my school, on my 2nd internship (this one is at NASA), and I worked at a tutor and student mentor for the last two years. I'm not going to include my entire CV/resume, but they are packed. I've done a lot of STEM-related work and outreach. Last semester I won 8 awards and created comprehensive virtual Calculus 2 and 3 notes that will be implemented into courses at my college as a resource. I'm also dyslexic, for which time and a half is recommended on the ACT, but couldn't afford the extensive testing needed to qualify ($1,700). Moreover, I'm a first-generation student and my parents do not support my endeavor to become educated. It's all I've ever wanted, and I want the best education I can get. I'm wondering if I'd have a chance.
