Chance me for UCONN Engineering

Sophomore year: 4 honors classes GPA (UW): 3.69
Junior year: 3 honors, and 1 ap class GPA (UW): 3.40 (the reason my gpa dropped so low was due to personal reasons ; stress from school, and family, family conflict with relatives. i was also bullied for a really long time and went through a pretty rough time in middle school, and honestly, those experiences were really traumatizing. things happened my junior year that reminded me of it, causing me to become very anxious and extremely self deprecating)</p>
