chance a clueless student living in Japan?

<p>I applied RD for Colgate but I have absolutely no idea if I have a shot or not so I'd REALLY appreciate it if you guys could chance me! I attend a competitive international school in Tokyo, Japan. </p>

<p>GPA: 3.49 (weighted) (I know this is really low, but my grades have been improving in an upward trend. freshman: 3.02, sophomore: 3.55, junior: 3.86.
right now as a senior i have a 4.14 but it could drop to like a 3.9 if i mess up my exams</p>

<p>AP Classes this year (at my school you can only take them starting Junior year): US History, English Language and Composition, Macroeconomics. I also self-studied for Microecnomics and Japanese.
Next year I'm taking: Honors English, Japan Seminar (an honors course offered uniquely at my school), AP Environmental Science, AP Statistics, and AP French.</p>

<p>ACT Composite Score: 34
(English: 32, Math: 34, Reading: 33, Science: 35, Combined English/Writing: 29)</p>

<p>Extracurriculars:
-varsity swim team all 4 years and captain junior & senior year
-club called abot kamay all 4 years where i went to Thailand for a service trip
-treasurer of my school's GSSA club
-worked for the past 2 summers as a camp counselor at a summer camp hosted by my school</p>

<p>Thank you so much for your time! :)</p>

<p>I think you have a great chance! I have better grades but worse standardized testing results than you have and people have said to me that I have great chances. Let's hope for the best and maybe we'll se each other in the fall!</p>

<p>Ahh, thank you!! That's really good to hear; it'd be awesome if we do!</p>

<p>Good work. You're certainly not a shoo-in by any means since lots of applicants will have GPA's similar to yours -- and standardized exam scores, as well. But your advanced coursework, your living in Japan, your sports, and perhaps other factors will also play a role in impressing the admissions committee, perhaps. </p>

<p>I'd say you have a solid chance of being admitted, but keep in mind that Colgate gets three to four times as many applicants as it admits. So, it has to turn away a lot of very talented students. Of course you'll apply to other schools, as well, but Colgate might just admit you. You'll never know if you don't apply. Good luck!</p>
