<p>A couple of comments:</p>

<ol>
<li>Your test scores are fine. I wouldn't worry about improving them.</li>
<li>Your years in basketball don't add up (you list 7 years)</li>
<li>Neither do your basketball awards</li>
</ol>

<p>I suspect what happened is that you're such a great basketball player that the HS team wanted you to play for them when you were in MS. If that is the case... they <em>don't</em> care about middle school stuff. Unfortunately I can't judge your IB stuff. I would say if it's comparable to a 3.75 GPA then that's fine.</p>

<p>Yeah I played for the high school team in middle school, thus the weird number for the years and awards on the team.</p>

<p>As for the 3.75, I actually got it wrong and its actually 3.93. But my IB grades won't and aren't at that standard.</p>

<p>Thank you for the comments, but other than those is there a verdict as to if I will be a good candidate for the school?</p>

<p>Your scores are right in the middle of the student profile, and you have a ton of extra curricular activities with leadership. I don't know how IB works, but I have a feeling it goes under the "rigorous coursework" that Michigan emphasizes in high school. So I'd say, you're chances are pretty high that you'd get in.</p>
