Chance a Rising Senior

<p>Hello, I was wondering if someone could chance me. </p>

<p>Chinese-American
Female
Massachusetts
First Generation</p>

<p>GPA: End of junior year (2.4 UW) / Expected end of mid-senior year (2.6/2.7 W)
SAT: 1500 / Hoping to retake for 1800
Courseload: First time taking APs or honors in senior year, Took Biology twice</p>

<p>Extra-curriculars:
2 to be 3 Years Varsity Softball Team
2 to be 3 Years Elementary School Tutor
3 Years of Asian Club
3 Years of Key Club</p>

<p>Jobs:
1 Year Ice Cream Store
1 Summer Selective Hospital Medical Program for High School Students
1 Summer Hospital Volunteer</p>

<p>Essay: On being a very outspoken person, how this is the opposite of what a traditional Chinese family expects of their daughter, and how it has shaped who I am now.</p>

<p>Recommendations: From two teachers at school, and perhaps a very close supervisor at my hospital medical program.</p>

<p>--
I know it will probably be hard to gain admission seeing how only a few (8%) of attending students have a GPA below 3.0. But will my being Asian help me out somewhat in admission seeing only 4% are Asian at UMass Amherst?</p>

<p>From looking at that i would say no because of you're gpa. Umass Amherst is becoming very competitive to get in to. If you get that gpa to a 3.0 there could be a chance.</p>
