Another "Chance me?" thread

<p>I'm a white male (OOS) who applied ED for Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. I attend a public school ranked in the top 100 overall nationwide.</p>

<p>Stats:
~GPA: 3.8 UW, 4.8W->4.375 according to the Tech conversion
~34/384 Class Rank
~SAT: 740 CR, 740 M, 650 W, for a combined 2130.
~SAT II: 800 US History, 750 Chemistry</p>

<p>I've taken 3 AP classes (Lit, US, World) and 1 IB class, SL Chemistry, due to schedule conflicts. Scores were 5's on Lit and World, and 4's on US and Chemistry.</p>

<p>This year's schedule has 5 AP classes: Physics B (C isn't offered), Gov, Lit, Spanish Language, and AB Calc, and last but not least, Jazz Band.</p>

<p>Awards: One for IB Chemistry, one for having over a 4.0 W GPA, AP Scholar with Distinction, and 1st alternate in All-District Band on tenor saxophone (5/26).</p>

<p>Extracurriculars:
~4 years of band/marching band.
~3 years of Quiz Bowl (1 year of A-Team; we recently advanced in a competition, which I put in my application)
~1 year of Speech and Debate
~1 year of Tri-M (Music society)
Small amount of volunteer work done at my middle school several years ago.</p>

<p>So, what do you think?</p>

<p>You don't need to be chanced. You're in. 100% That is, unless you forgot something dumb, like writing the essay</p>

<p>I realized I forgot to include playing in the pit for 2 school musicals in this thread (not on the application, thankfully), and thanks for your vote of confidence.</p>

<p>Just curious how you calculated the GT conversion? With and unweighted of 3.8, and with 3 APs and 1 IB, how did you get up in the 4.3 area? My D may have been doing it wrong.</p>

<p>Going from their conversion, I calculated it with an A as a 4.5, B as a 3.5 (down to D: 1.5), and as instructed, tacked on an extra .5 to each AP/IB course, and took the average.</p>

<p>Here's the link to the conversion table:

<p>Yeah, I see how you could get that given the way they wrote it up. </p>

<p>My D calculated hers a different way. She said if she got an A in a non-AP course, it was a 4.0 (for example). If it was an A in an AP course, she used 4.5. Then she added up all the semester grades and divided by number of semester grades. </p>

<p>I guess it doesn't matter really, since GT actually calculates it themselves, but I was just curious.</p>
