Chances at my First Choice School!!

<p>Okay, I don't want to put a whole essay up here, so:</p>

unweighted: 3.9
weighted: 4.0+
(only 3 B's all of high school)
-Class Rank: top 10; #3 out of about 300ish
varsity soccer; a couple minor awards
volunteer work: church, hospital, youth soccer camp..dont feel like listing all of them
president/founder of French Club
National Honor Society
-strong recommendtions (I think)
-I've heard my essay was pretty good, and I think I did well on the 6(!!) short response
-Now, for the nastyyy part

<p>So..what do you guys think?</p>

<p>I think you have a great chance of being admitted</p>

<p>i think you have a decent chance. </p>

<p>our stats are relatively similar, except i got a 31 on my ACT and have a few more ecs and i was accepted (although it was based on my art, not entirely on my stats)</p>

<p>It depends where you are from. Your test scores are on the low side, but if they were good for your high school then you should be good.</p>

<p>Well, I go to a public high school in Ohio;my test scores were definitely higher than others in my school (there may have been 10 or so that scored higher than me).</p>

<p>whats ur 2 part SAT?</p>

<p>Whats that?</p>

<p>WFU does not require SAT IIs</p>

<p>K thats what I thought..I only sent in my SAT reasoning and ACT's with writing.</p>

<p>no critical reading and math (no writing)
I dont think that Wake counts the writing section</p>


<p>i had similar stats and was praying ill get in regular decision but i doubt it</p>

<p>it will be tough to overcome the low gpa/act. hopefully your essay and recommendations push you over the top. good luck with the college search process.</p>

<p>And, if it makes a difference, I'm a first-generation college student. I don't know, someome told me it might affect my admissions.</p>

<p>Public school in Ohio doesn't mean a whole lot. There is a big difference between the public schools in some of the suburbs of Toledo/Columbus and the public schools in SmallTownOhio.</p>

<p>My school is in a suburb of Cleveland..about 20 minutes away.</p>

<p>Do you have anyone there pulling for you? (Coaches, etc?) What's your backup plan?</p>

<p>Well, I've already gotten accepted into OSU, so, if I don't get into Wake (which it seems the odds are against me), I'll go there. But, I do have one very good recommendation from my English teacher;he said my choice of medicine for a career would be "a loss of a unique writing talent". Haha CREEPER much!!</p>

<p>O, and here is an elaboration on my stats...seeing I seem to have left a lot of that out.</p>
