Chances at U of C?

<p>Once again thank you for any help</p>

<p>Not even an admissions officer can tell you your exact "chances" of getting in. How can you possibly trust complete strangers' opinion about you? Most applications are read holistically and we don't have access to all the information about you that the admissions offices do!</p>

<p>U of C, not UC. Completely different time zone</p>

<p>OP: you will need to make a compelling case with your essays to have a chance.</p>

<p>I did say U of C, and no I am not trusting a complete strangers decision, rather I am just curious as to what people think of my credentials.
But seriously, could somebody please tell me how my chances are? Also what about such schools as University of Illinois, Notre Dame, and Northwestern?
Thanks.</p>

<p>You are a strong student and will be competitive at a lot of good schools. Take the time to write very compelling essays. You will be in the hunt.</p>

<p>What do you mean by good schools? Sorry for asking these incoherent question but I'm just such an inquisitive person.</p>

<p>Also what if I were to retake the ACT and get a higher score, such as a 34?</p>

<p>Your original post is pretty vague. Asking again and again isn't going to change the reality: You aren't the strongest applicant, but with compelling essays, you'll certainly have an appreciable shot. What are you asking for? I'm not going to say "Eh, your chances of admission are eight to one; any takers on those odds?"</p>
