Chance a low gpa?

<p>UW GPA: 3.45 (my school doesn't do weighted)
I did very terribly my sophomore year because I didn't care about school, but I did pretty well junior year, ending 2nd semester with 1 B
Also, I took a lot of hard classes, all honors and ap. I think my weighted is around 3.9</p>

<p>AP: Euro (3), Calc AB (4), Calc BC (5), Chem (4), Bio (4), U.S History (4)</p>

<p>SAT: 2060 (taking again but i don't think the score's getting any higher)</p>

<p>SAT II:
710 Chem, 740 Math, 680 US history, 670 Bio</p>

National Honor Society (officer 4 yrs) - 70 hrs
American Cancer Society (officer 1 yr)
Model UN (1 yr; 2 conferences)
Volunteering at local hospital (officer of program) - 350 hrs
played an instrument 9 yrs</p>

<p>Senior Classes: ap lit, ap stats, ap physics, ap econ, ap psych</p>

<p>I'm guessing it a high reach? my sat and gpa are too low. does usc ask for and actually consider midyear reports? It would really help if i could show fantastic grades for senior year.</p>

<p>USC will ask for midyear reports and they are usually cognizant of students who show upwards trends in their grades. However, unless you get all As in your fall semester, I do agree that the GPA is a bit low. </p>

<p>If you can retake the SAT, I think you should really study if USC is your dream school. If you do flashcards, get a friend to tutor you, practice tests, etc and can raise it to a 2100+ your chances will improve.</p>

<p>AP scores are OK, not amazing. Same with ECs.</p>

<p>If nothing changes, I don't see you getting in. If you can raise the SAT, I can see you maybe having a shot. Good luck!</p>

<p>Admissions officer told me that unless you are going to raise your SAT by 300 then there is point retaking it</p>
