Chance Me for Syracuse Please

<p>I submitted my Syracuse University application (regular decison) and I am anxious/nervious about the decison. I was hoping for some feedback and some honesty to put my kind at ease or get a sense of what to expect.</p>

<p>I have a 3.35 weighted GPA so far with my grades getting better each year as I have increases the rigor of my course load. I have taken in total 12 AP/Honors in all 4 years and have 4 AP's this year. The first semester just ended and I got a 3.8, which i hope would help my case. </p>

<p>My Sat scores are a 1920 with a 690 in CR, 600 in math, and 630 in writing (with a 12 essay) </p>

<p>My teacher recommendation is very good, but I feel that my main essay may be a bit to broad, but it does focus on me in the majority. My supplement essays though, were in my opinion really focused and expressed my desire to go to Syracuse. I had 2 interviews over the summer that went very well and I have legacy, as my dad went there. I took a summer course where I recieved 3 college credits at UVA in Business, and i hope that helps because I applied to the Whitman School of Management, with the College of Arts and Sciences as my second choice. </p>

<p>Where I am hoping to stand out are in my extra curriculars. I am involved in 7 honor societies, Model Un, Debate, and am captain of the Swim and Dive and Volleyball team. I am an Eagle Scout and also officers in the high school newspaper and many other clubs. I have gotten the AP scholar with honors award and have other Debate and Model UN awards that help my resume. </p>

<p>Despite being below the average GPA (3.6) of the school, I fall above the high 1870 Sat average, but with admissions these days you never know. Does anyone know what my odds look like so far?</p>

<p>Thanks for any help or Honest input you guys can give. Looking forward to seeing my chances.</p>

<p>I think you will in.</p>

<p>"I fall high above the 1870 Sat average" </p>

<p>Don't mean to sound harsh, but not really. 50 points is virtually nothing in admissions. Being 50 points above average will not compensate for the significantly lower gpa. </p>

<p>Your ECs/honors might be enough to compensate for the lower gpa.</p>

<p>Sorry, I meant to write "I fall higher than the average" thanks for your input though</p>

<p>A couple years back, my brother's son got into Cornell, but got rejected at Syracuse.</p>

<p>So you can never be sure.</p>

<p>I think you will get in! My daughter's stats were well below yours and she was accepted. Floridadad is correct in that you can never know for sure.... But I really do think you have a good shot. Best of luck to you!</p>

<p>@Floridadad55</p>

<p>got accept to cornell but SU did reject? really?</p>

<p>While I believe your GPA and SAT might not be enough to get you into Whitman (or is it Maxwell? I can never remember), you probably have a really good shot getting into the CAS.</p>

<p>^^assuming floridadad's relative applied to Newhouse or Architecture.......</p>
