Chance a JUNIOR!

<p>I'm not sure if I'm good enough, but let's hope so. I'm from Minnesota, and am a white male.</p>

<p>GPA UW: 3.000 (bad 9th grade and beginning of 11th)
GPA Weighted: 3.07
Projected ACT: 29-33
Good EC's (clubs, theater, athletics, peer tutor, etc)</p>

<p>Classes Junior Year:
Honors Algebra II
AP English Lit
AP Psychology
Spanish III
AP US History
AP Chemistry

<p>Senior Year:
Honors Pre-Calc
AP English comp
AP Euro
AP Spanish IV
Honors Govt
AP Econ
Honors Physics</p>

<p>...Do you think I can make it in?</p>

<p>your GPA is a little bit low, but the UW is starting to look past that now if you offer strong ECs and a rigorous schedule.</p>

<p>Your junior and senior schedules look really strong, get a good GPA jr year and don't drop any of your APs or Honors and your chances will increase tenfold. </p>

<p>I don't really know anything about ACT's so I couldn't tell you but I think 29-33 is a good score, isn't it?</p>

<p>FYI, the UW looks at unweighted GPAs</p>

<p>I'd say it looks pretty good -- like cman8123 said, the GPA may be a bit low, but the projected ACT and your schedules look great.</p>

<p>Just be aware, UW's probably going to be cutting its budget this year. As a result, the acceptance rates are more than likely going to be much more competitive than before, especially when you consider that the last few years have seen record numbers of applicants.</p>

<p>However, I hope that didn't discourage you. I think the best thing to do is to make sure to have an excellent junior year. Junior year is really, really important.</p>

<p>29-33 is a big difference.
It's like saying SATs 1800-2200</p>

<p>29-33 is the the estimated score that the PLAN test gave me.</p>

<p>In reality, I'll probably get somewhere around a 28, hopefully higher.</p>

<p>the PLAN test is actually really accurate-- my first ACT I scored smack dab in the middle of the projected score.</p>
