Chances and a few questions

<p>Alright guys I just got my SAT scores back, so here is my current resume. </p>

<p>GT GPA: 3.53 (This is what it is going to be at the end of this year, but with the amount of AP's I'm taking next semester, I can easily get this into the 3.6's by January.) </p>

<p>SAT: Math-700
CR-680
W- 660
Total: 2040 </p>

<p>Through my Jr year, I have taken 4 AP's and the rest have been either Gifted or Honors. My senior year course load is the following:
AP Econ, AP Lit, AP Calc AB, AP Stat, AP Bio, Gifted Internship (1 semester), and AP American Gov (1 semester). </p>

<p>EC's </p>

<p>Vice President/Co-founder of Career Club
President/Founder of Cricket Club
Member of Academic Decathlon
Vice President of History Club
Member of TSA and FBLA
Volunteered at 2 Atlanta area hospitals (200 hours)
Mentored Middle Schooler's at their school (50 hours) </p>

<p>Alright, so here are my questions: </p>

<ol>
<li><p>Do I have a decent shot at admission with where I currently stand? </p></li>
<li><p>I can take the SAT's again in October, but then will I be able to apply ED? </p></li>
<li><p>Should I take Subject Tests in October or work on improving my SAT reasoning score? </p></li>
</ol>

<p>Thanks guys.</p>

1. Do I have a decent shot at admission with where I currently stand?

<p>Even in the 3.6's is low for Tech, your SAT score is average, and your EC's are average. I think there's a very good chance you'll be deferred early (a very low chance you'll be rejected early), then I'm 50/50 on admission/rejection on regular decision, but leaning towards admission.</p>

<p>According to their website, the October SAT scores should arrive in time for Early Notification. </p>

<p>That's up to you. However, GT doesn't require subject tests and others on here have reportedly been told that subject tests are not considered for admission (though I somewhat doubt that), so I would work on improving that SAT I score to make up for the low GPA.</p>

<p>I disagree with the above post. I wouldn't say In, but you have a very good chance with that mix of GPA/SAT. Your ECs are also good. I say you have a good shot.</p>

<p>I appreciate both of you guys for your honest responses. Tech is my dream school so I really hope I can get in.</p>

<p>Sounds like you are a lot like me then, in dream-school status as well as in transcript stats.</p>

<p>haha yup. Are you taking any SAT II's?</p>

<p>Math 2 and Chemistry</p>

<p>I think I'm gonna do Math II and Writing. </p>

<p>Anyways, does anyone else have any opinions over whether I can get in? GP Burdell?</p>

<p>I don't know my GT GPA, but you have about the same total SAT score as I did, much more community service, and a lot of leadership in your EC's, and the same number of AP classes, so I'd say you have a good shot as well.</p>

<p>Definitely pull up SAT with that GPA,
I had a 3.44 GT GPA and a 2360 GT SAT and got in, so you should take advantage of GT SAT/ACT Super-duper score</p>

<p>Good Luck</p>

<p>What percent shot would yall give me as of my stats right now? </p>

<p>What percent shot would yall give me if i raised my SAT to a 2100 and my GPA to a 3.65? </p>

<p>Thanks for everything. As yall can see, getting into Tech is something that I really want.</p>

<p>Forget the SAT - get the UWGPA to 3.65/4.00 and I'd put you at 70/30.</p>

<p>Alright sounds good. I'll have to work my ass off but it will be totally worth it.</p>

<p>Does GT look at 1st semester senior year?</p>

<p>If you don't get in early (and I'm betting not), they will look at 1st semester. If you are waitlisted and accept a position on the waitlist, they will look at mid 2nd semester.</p>
