Chance for Florida State

<p>I am FREAKING OUT because I'm afraid I won't get into FSU. Could you guys possibly give me idea of my chances of being admitted? (I'm a junior)</p>

<p>GPA: 3.8
SAT: 550 Math, 600 Reading, 620 Writing
ACT: haven't taken it yet
EC: Drama (6 years), Dance, Softball, NHS, ASL Honor Society, International Thespian Society, Peer Ministry, Voice lessons, Community theatre, work experience, and 100+ hours of volunteer work
Classes: by the time I graduate I will have taken 4 honors classes (English 9 and 10, World History, Government/economics), 2 AP's (English and psychology) and 3 DE's (US history, English, World Civilizations) My grades have also shown progression from freshman to junior year, which I believe FSU considers important.
I also go to a private college prep school if that means anything.
I am also in-state.</p>

<p>Please respond. This post took an unusually long time to write.</p>

<p>Thank you!</p>

<p>SAT: Bad. Your math is below their 25th percentile and your CR is quite average.
GPA: Great! Shouldn't be an issue.
ACT: Good luck! Aim for a 30 or better, as the 75th percentile for FSU is a 28.
ECs: Good, good. It looks like you've got what a competitive theater program like theirs is looking for.
Course rigor: Decent. If it's not too late, pick up another AP or two-- it'll set you apart. There are many students out there who take two every year, let alone over their entire high school career.
State residency: Could help or hurt you. For example, some state schools let in mostly state residents (like UNC Chapel Hill); others prefer to admit non-residents because they can charge much more for tuition.</p>

<p>Bottom line: Raise those scores, submit a good audition and essay, and you'll get in. Right now it's a match/high match-- good luck! :)</p>

<p>Yea, my math scores could definitely be better! I'm taking the SAT two more time, and doing a minimum of 2 hours of SAT prep ( with a concentration in math) a day. I've done two practice tests and have already raised it 60 points! The DE classes are basically AP, only better, but I'll try to get more AP classes in.</p>

<p>Thank you for your reply! </p>

<p>Anyone else have any thoughts?</p>

<p>One more question! Is match/high match a good thing?</p>

<p>Your in with a good essay and a strong senior year schedule</p>

<p>CC users tend to grade in categories of In/Safety, Match/Target, and Reach, in increasing difficulty to get in. You're a good fit for FSU-- it may be a bit tricky to get in, but that's the caliber of school to which you should be applying. Hence, "match/high match." :)</p>

<p>In for sure! I'm from FL too and I got in with similar stats as you.</p>

<p>Pretty sure you'll get in. I'd be suprised if you didn't.</p>

<p>Quick update! I got in :)</p>

<p>Hey just take the ACT and see how you do. I recently got in, with at least a 28 and the rest of your stats you'll be fine.</p>

<p>Congratulations on your acceptance. :)</p>
