<p>Do I have a shot?</p>

<p>now i'm no expert, but i say you definitely have a shot as long as you emphasize certain parts about yourself too. also, i guess emphasize anything that may have to do with your prospective major.</p>

<p>If you have time, study hard for the standardized tests and get that 2200 or 33. It will make you even more of a favorable applicant since those scores are kind of low. Like the previous poster said, definitely emphasize the other aspects of your application, but try and smooth over this weaker point.</p>

<p>There's a microfinance club on campus that is pretty premature, you could look into that too.</p>

<p>Do u know the name of that club?</p>

<p>Nu microfinance... Haha. Probably about 100 or so people on the listserv but not that much leadership yet.</p>
