<p>HOOKS:</p>

<p>I am of Hispanic descent.</p>

<p>Can pay full OOS tuition for 4 years.</p>

<p>We're missing a critical piece of information. Admission is by college. Are you applying to College of Liberal Arts (BA in Computer Science) or College of Science and Engineering (BS in Computer Science)?</p>

<p>If we have that information, we can check last year's freshman profile, Academic</a> Profile, to see how you would have fit with that group. You'll notice that for CLA, your SAT CR+M of 1290 is 29 points higher than that of the average admit whereas for CSE, it's 64 points lower. Since your school doesn't rank it's tough to say where your GPA would fit in.</p>

<p>I don't pretend to know your chances; I'm just pointing out the available data. You'd be wise to talk to someone in Admissions.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>
