<p>I'm an OOS student. I live in California. I know my GPA isn't high, but I hope that my extracurriculars and essays will help. I didn't do very well during my freshman and sophomore years, but I got high semester GPAs during my junior year. Please chance me! Thank you! :)</p>

<p>For what it is worth, I would say in for sure! :) You seem very well rounded. Your GPA is high, your SAT score is high and your EC's are fantastic!</p>

<p>You're in surely high GPA, SAT and fantastic EC's</p>

<p>@tessey64 and @creamania: Thank you both for your replies! :)</p>

<p>Glad to see another Taiwanese applying :] Most likely in!</p>

<p>@dabober: Thanks! Good luck to you too! :) Also, have you heard of the AID Summer in Taiwan program? Just curious because I am applying for that in a few days.</p>

<p>Class Ranking doesn't affect admission. Seems like you have a good variety of EC's (although you only had to mention 5 :P) and AP classes (which make up for a 3.5 GPA, if you're worried about it. It's still pretty solid!). I wouldn't sweat it too much, you fit the profile :) good luck!</p>

<p>If you come to UW, be sure to join Taiwanese Student Association and/or get involved with Taiwanese Overseas Student Association! ;)</p>

<p>@themusiciangirl Yes, I'm also applying to AID program this coming month!</p>

<p>@yooooo1994: Thanks for the reply! Good luck to you too! :)</p>

<p>@speedsolver: I'll look into them if I get in and decide to go to UW, thanks! :)</p>

<p>@dabober: Good luck to you!</p>

<p>well, that was bizarre^. Truly, I'm rather surprised the prudent even bothered to apply to UW, considering his qualifications and all. You seem like a shoo in to me, and I hope you do, because, going off of your EC and all, you seem awesome.
Best of Luck( not that you will need it)</p>


<p>ps- @Yooooo1994- Class rank is no consideration? That is good news indeed!( good SAT and EC, but from a very small, very academic HS)</p>

<p>@Moooah: Haha I saw his reply on my email notifications... that was definitely bizarre. And thanks so much! Best of luck to you as well! :)</p>

<p>Seems like you have a good chance. Really the only thing that would strengthen your application is a higher GPA but your GPA isn't even low :) Good luck!!</p>

<p>A classmate of mine did the Taiwan summer program and she said it was horrid, btw.</p>

<p>Hope to see you make it.</p>

<p>@themusiciangirl Good luck to you too! I heard it's not easy to get into because of the number of people applying.</p>

<p>@XaviFM Hopefully, that won't be the case for me. The program sounds fun from the reviews I've read.</p>

<p>I was told the trip was enriching and fun, but that the academic portion was horrid.</p>
