Chance me and I will chance your back :D

<p>Hey guys, I'm currently a senior graduating this year! I am seeking to major in biomedical engineering or civil engineering, though I'm leaning more towards biomedical. I only applied to in-state schools because I just can't give anymore stress to my parents with out-of-state tuition. Please be honest </p>

<p>I applied to the following schools (from the top being my 1st choice and the bottom being my last):</p>

<p>UNC Chapel Hill
NC State
UNC Charlotte
UNC Asheville</p>

<p>In-State and Asian
GPA: UW-3.9 Weighted-4.6
Rank: 5/89
ACT: 29 (Eng-31, Math-31, Read-26, Sci-27) And will not re-take it
SAT: Too ashamed to tell XD Did not send it.</p>

-Durham Regional Hospital Volunteer (200 hours)
-Adopt-A-Highway Volunteer (Junior and Senior Year)
-Treasurer and Volunteer Coordinator of National Honor Society
-Senior Secretary and Sophomore Class Representative for Student Government
-Yearbook Club Photographer
-Science Club Member (Freshmen and Sophomore Year)
-Math Tutor (Junior and Senior Year)
-UNC Project Uplift (IDK if this will improve my chances for UNC Chapel Hill)</p>

-Excellence in Alg II Certificate (Basically all the excellence awards are for getting the highest grades in my whole class grade)
-Excellence in Pre-Calc Certificate
-Excellence in Biology Certificate
-Excellence in Eng IV Certificate
-Supertindent Award (twice)
-Mayor's Award (Volunteering over 100 hours over the summer)</p>

<p>Other Requirements (For Chapel Hill)
-Teacher Rec- Teacher loves me! I was her best and favorite student every year
-Counselor Statement- Most likely a good and memorable statement about me. I am one of the most notable students in the school
-Essays: Very Personal! Had it looked over by a english college professor and english high school teacher.</p>

<p>I'd appreciate if you see me as a low target, match, safety, low match, etc for each school.</p>

<p>Thanks you guys! Oh and I will definitely chance back!</p>

<p>Id say lock for all but UNC, then you have a really good chance of getting into UNC.
But what do I know?</p>

<p>You’ll definitely get in NC State, Asheville, and Charlotte. UNC is a little harder but I think you have a great chance, given your grades and state residency. Good luck! Did you apply early action?</p>

<p>Chance back?</p>

<p>UNC has BME but not civil engineering. UNC just has BME, Computer and Environmental (in their applied sciences division)? Honestly, NCSU has a wider array of engineering programs. In my opinion, UNC is better on the whole but if you are set for a technical/engineering education you need to consider all your options.</p>

<p>Honestly, I’ve always wanted to attend UNC! Civil Engineering is my backup major if I attend NC State. NC State, in my opinion, is an excellent school for engineering. If I get accepted to my top 2 schools (NC state is my number two if I get accepted into the engineering program), it would take months until that deposit is due to actually decide which one to attend.</p>

<p>But JohnBlack, I increased my act score from a 27 to a 29. How do my chances look now in getting accepted to UNC? I feel more worried getting accepted to UNC. I feel confident in getting into the other schools I listed.</p>

<p>Your grades look great and your ECs are competitive for an in-state applicant. As you know, your scores are lower than average for IS applicants but you could still get in as it stands. I think you have a shot but a 29 ACT would really help out your chances. Your scores are the only factor I can see that is really holding back your application. It’s going to be really competitive to get into UNC this year.</p>

<p>Hey John, why is it in your reply that you said, “I think you have a shot but a 29 ACT would really help out your chances.” You stated it as though I do not have a 29 on the ACT, but in fact I do have a 29 on the ACT. I retook it and got a 29.</p>
