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 few of attending students have a GPA below 3.0. But will my being Asian help me out somewhat in admission seeing only 5% of students attending are Asian?</p>

<p>What major are you applying for? Your GPA is the biggest thing to deal with.</p>

<p>Does anyone know how many attending students at Ithaca have a GPA between 2.5 and 3? Collegeboard publishes this data for a lot of colleges but Ithaca doesn't have it there.</p>

<p>Percent in top 10th of high school graduating class 27.4
Percent in top quarter of high school graduating class 67.2
Percent in top half of high school graduating class 93.0
Percent in bottom half of high school graduating class 7.0
Percent in bottom quarter of high school graduating class 0.3
Percent of total first-time, first-year (freshman) students
who submitted high school class rank 56.7 </p>

<p>Is she in the top half of her high school graduating class. If not, she really doesn't have much of a chance.</p>
