Chance me?

<p>GPA: (unweighted) 3.77
SAT: 2240 (710 W, 750 M, 780 CR)
SATII: Math II: 800, Bio (E): 790</p>


<p>I've volunteered at a local food pantry every week for the past couple years. I started a free tutoring program at my local library for kids. I went on a week long volunteer trip in New Hampshire last summer where I worked on hiking trails for the Appalachian Mountain Club. I've also organized a couple anti-war demonstrations in my hometown, I'm not sure if they would count as volunteer work, but I thought I could throw that in there. </p>

<p>I'm homeschooled, however I've taken many of my classes at a local community college (I'm going there full time this year), and my GPA at the college is 3.97 (7 classes taken so far, I got A's in all of them except one which was an A-) as of this last semester. I'll have earned about 40 credit hours there by the end of this year. I feel pretty confident about all of my classes, but due to the fact that I'm graduating a year early, I'll only have two years of foreign language. Will that hurt me? I know Cornell requires three years, but would they overlook the missing year?</p>

<p>Thanks for your time!</p>

<p>I have the same question about foreign language (I only have two years). When I called the admissions office yesterday they told me to send an email to the undergrad dean of CAS but I haven't gotten a response (yet) :/</p>

<p>Have you taken any AP exams? Otherwise, I think you have a decent chance. A bit less than average.</p>

<p>Your grades are good, but colleges HIGHLY recommend 3-4 years of a language. It might hurt you(thats what Ive been told by my college counselor).
Are you taking hard courses? Or easy A courses. A B in a hard course is much better than an A in an easy course.
You should try doing more in the community. There are students applying with 500+ hours, and remember, you are competing with them.
...yea so it really depends on your course load.</p>

<p>I don't have any APs. I'll be taking a few this year though. (Calculus BC, Biology, and possibly English language and Physics C). As far as my courseload, I'm taking calculus on my own, and physics/programming at the community college, among other courses (spanish, american government, writing, etc...). They're definitely the most challenging courses available to me as a homeschooled student, and I would have taken more courses at the community college if they had allowed me to. I'm definitely below average in terms of community service (I probably have just above 200 hours). Thanks for the response though! This is definitely a reach school for me.</p>
