Chance My Son, Please

<p>Son a junior in excellent public high school in MA. Has a 4.7 weighted GPA (out of 6.0) – have no idea how this translates on the 4.0 scale but he is a B student, having taken 3/4 of his classes at the Advanced level. Will take 3 APs next year (Bio, Stats, Latin); President of Latin Club; varsity golf and crew; few other clubs at school throughout high school and has done a bit of volunteering.</p>

<p>School doesn’t rank but he’s in top 30% (75/260).</p>

<p>SATs: 700M, 620CR, 520W – will take again in June. How much does the Writing section actually count?</p>

<p>Also, not applying for financial aid – does this even matter?</p>

<p>Anyone out there with honest opinion would be most appreciated! Thanks.</p>

<p>I applied and was accepted with a 3.45 unweighted GPA (3.8 weighted), 30 for ACTS and some very relevant EC's.</p>

<p>I really don't like to make these kinds of calls, but your son is definitely not in the category of being flat out rejected. He's got a decent shot.</p>

<p>wait he's a junior? he's skipping the senior year? @_@
as for the rest i think he has a decent chance - let us know how things go!... Wishing you and your son all the best!</p>

<p>you're son had better stats than me and I got into AU. then again, I think it was my ECs that got me in and maybe the fact that i'm from Hawaii but yeah it shouldn't be too much of a trouble to get in.</p>

<p>I was accepted with the following:</p>

<p>770CR, 690 M</p>

<p>3.15 GPA</p>

<p>Awesome EC's</p>
