<p>So I've been looking into applying to Loyola Marymount University in California, but from the statistics I've seen so far, I feel like I have a slim chance. </p>
<p>I don't have a lot of extracurriculars because I was on my high school dance team for three years. It was also all year (from about July to May each year). Most of my time was dedicated to my team so my grades were not spectacular. This year I'm not on the team, because of conflicts that had happened, but I am a member of the National Honor Society. Though that pretty much sums up my ec's. </p>
<p>My GPA is bad because of my sophomore year being ridiculously challenging. I have a 3.457 non-weighted and a 4.057 weighted, and I've read that most colleges prefer non-weighted. I also had completed 24.5 credits by the end of my junior year, and my classes were mainly honors and one AP. I've only taken 5 regular classes besides dance (Spanish 1, food/nutrition, algebra 2, into to classical studies/study skills, drivers ed/health). I also found out that I would need 3 years of a foreign language, but I only have two. Also, physics is essential, but I haven't taken that either. Although I do have 5 years of science (biology h, chemistry h, anatomy/physiology h, forensics h, zoology h) if that could help me out a bit. </p>
<p>As for my test scores, they're pretty average I guess.
ACT: English 22 Math 22 Reading 27 Science 23 English with writing 20 Composite 24
I'm really not a great test taker, and I just retook my SATs. Hopefully I did better than the first time I took it or I'll be super bummed. </p>
<p>Hmm what else...
I'm ranked 59 out of 475 if that helps. :P
My stats don't look so amazing, but if I wrote excellent essays, would you think I'd have a chance at LMU (and USF, random, but I just want to know haha)? Oh and I also want to major in biology. Sorry for the excessive info but I really want to go to LMU.</p>
