Chance me Please

<p>Hi, thanks for taking the time to chance me. I have a 3.3 (W) (out of 4.0), 1810 SAT (Math 610, Reading 610, Writing 590).My school does not rank. I have taken all honor classes throughout high school (not one CP or AP). Academic awards were that i was placed on Spanish National Honor Society. Extracurriculars were 4 years of Basketball, 2 years of track (Captain), 4 years of AAU basketball (Non-school travel team). Job experiences were that i worked at a summer basketball camp for my highschool for for my junior and senior year, and i work year round doing cleaning duties etc in a dentist office (For all four years of High school). For Volunteer service i have volunteered many hours at the Pine Street Inn, a homeless shelter in Boston. My essay (which i believe to be strong, but who doesn't) was about the struggles i went through while my dad was deployed to Iraq, and the lessons i learned from those years. I sent in two Teacher recommendations, both who know me and my dad very well and who i see outside of school often. I go to a public school in MA, that has 650 kids, i'm a first generation college student, and i have visited and am very interested. Thanks once again.</p>

<p>your SAT score is fine but your GPA is low and you haven't taken any AP classes. What high school did you go to? (I'm from MA)</p>

<p>I'd say your chances are probably pretty low. Clemson really doesn't really place much emphasis on essays or extracurricular activities unless you have some very special circumstances (which would probably be possible with yours if it can explain your GPA)</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>Thanks for replying, and i'm from Norwell High. I knew Clemson was a reach, but it's always nice to aim high you know?</p>

<p>oh yeah no problem with that. Just don't get your hopes up to much is what I'm saying. Hope you get in though!</p>
