Chance me pleaseee?

<p>Please chance for Caltech and please be brutally honest. Do not tell me Ill get in just so ill chance u back (ill do it regardless of what you say)</p>

<p>Assuming i write good essays, how are my chances? From what I've seen, they don't seem too good (which makes me kind of sad). I screwed up a lot my freshman and sophomore year. I just didn't take school seriously enough. Though my junior year was an improvement, its still not "great". </p>

<p>Cum GPA = 3.47 (4.23 weighted)
Freshman gpa = 3.29
Sophomore gpa = 3.43
Junior GPA = 3.69
Freshman year really killed my gpa... i would have a 4.5 weighted if it wasn't for the massive amount of Bs i got that year. (Breakdown below)</p>

<p>ACT: 33 single test, 35 superscore (36M, 35W, 34R, 34S)

<p>Find Michael Wood’s post. Here’s what I think. You are a very impressive candidate (everyone who applies to Caltech is), but the fact that you have more B’s than A’s is going to hurt you…a lot.</p>

<p>Situations definitely vary by candidate, but are you not trying as hard in your classes as you are with your tests?</p>
