<p>AP Classes:

<p>Schools applying to and my thoughts on my chances:
UNC- Chapel Hill (reach)
University of Washington (target)
University of Arizona (safety)
University of Portland (safety)
University of Miami (target)</p>

<p>I'm an Idaho resident, if that helps.</p>

<p>UNC Chapel Hill - Reach (but with a bit higher SAT score, you're in good shape)
University of Washington - Good
University of Arizona - Good
University of Portland - Good
University of Miami - Good</p>

<p>Thanks Anthony, that's about what I was thinking.</p>

<p>Question: Since my verbal score is so much higher than my math score, do colleges look at that? I'm applying as a Journalism major (hence the EIC of the Newspaper) and I've yet to do a calculus problem in a story. I guess what I'm asking is: will colleges only look at the composite or will they discount the math score based on what I want to study?</p>

<p>Sicne you are going into Journalism, they will focus more on your verval, but your math will still be looked at. YOur goals are definately very reasonable, and I think you have a great shot at getting into UNC Chapel Hill</p>

<p>Appreciate that Anthony. UNC is my dream school so I'm working hard to get accepted. I'll bump this to see if anyone has any other comments.</p>

<p>Also, I know I that most of my choices are large public schools. I've already been accepted at Albertson College of Idaho just in case I decide I don't like them.</p>

<p>Bumpity bumpity bizzle.</p>
