Chance me! URM! Help me!!!!!!!! (notice the exclamation points!)

<p>Some of you have probably seen me before but I want to apply to at least two private schools so far I've applied to mostly UC's and Cal States
Gpa: uw 3.5 w 4.21
Rank: 31/570
Taken 3 AP's and 4 in this year (senior) (ap scholar)
SAT:(horrible) 1660 retook but did worse I hope I did better on ACT
Extracurricular: few clubs and volunteer with 100+ hours
Hispanic female low income I think my essay is okay about hope and where I am from
*note: most AP's I took are in humanities but im applying as a science major this might affect my chances I think </p>

<p>Loyola Marymount university
USC (I know it's a reach)
Chapman
Uni of pacific</p>

<p>Recommend small schools if you can I started considering them</p>

<p>I think it's an autoin!</p>

<p>chance back? <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1232275-yale-scea-chances-promise-i-will-chance-back.html%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/what-my-chances/1232275-yale-scea-chances-promise-i-will-chance-back.html&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Thanks Horn dude
Can someone recommend small schools? A lot of people have told me I should consider them because Im mostly applying to big state schools in California also I took my act and I'm going to take it again December what should I aim for (considering my last sat went horrible 1510)</p>

<p>Bump.......</p>

<p>Chance me for pitzer college too (a bit last minute)</p>

<p>Bump bump bump happy Halloween</p>

<p>I think you have a good chance at Chapman, but USC and LMU are probably reaches. U of Pacific you probably have a reasonable chance (:</p>

<p>Minority status gives you an advantage. Your GPA is right on target but your test scores are quite low. Hopefully your EC's are focused.</p>

<p>As far as the AP's go... depends on what your school offered. If they offered AP Biology, AP Chem, Physics, etc, and you didn't take them even though you had the means that will not be looked at favorably.</p>

<p>U of Pacific is an automatic in, like horn dude said. Small liberal arts school, you seem to have really focused on arts and humanities in your high school career. </p>

<p>Chapman, yes, LMU is a low reach and USC is probably a high reach.</p>

<p>That is my chance forum. Please consider!</p>

<p>If I take a sat subject test on a science like bio would it improvemy chances?</p>

<p>Loyola Marymount University: Likely/reach
Chapman: Likely
University of Pacific: Likely</p>

<p>Yes, I would recommend taking the SAT subject test for bio.</p>

<p>I wouldn't worry about your SAT score if you do well on the ACT. I scored poorly on the SAT but scored really well on the ACT :) I would recommend aiming for a 30-34. 32 would be ideal. Get Cracking the ACT 2011 from the Princeton Review and study with it. If your test scores still aren't good, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Perhaps you just don't test well; in that case you should consider applying at test-optional schools as well.</p>

<p>I'm applying to only small colleges, so I would be more than happy to recommend some for you! You mentioned that you plan on being a science major, but you didn't say what field in science. Do you desire a study abroad program? Are women's colleges okay? Are certain states more preferable than others?</p>

<p>I'm thinking about bio medical engineering or nursing so in the medical field and I live in California so I'm probably staying in state thanks
Also I speak Spanish but I didn't take it as a class so I was going to do the sat subject tomorrow but I don't have cd player so I'm thinking about doing literature instead would that be okay? Should I write something to colleges that days I'm bilingual (I took french in high school)</p>

<p>How about university of San Diego?</p>
