<p>Hey. I live in the area - are you at BCC? Just thought I'd drop by because I'm applying to the Huntsman program which is the other dual-degree program. Your GPA is great but your standardized test scores are a little low. I don't know if race will help you here, although it might not if you live in suburban MD. Just remember the dual degree programs are very select and accept a small percentage of students. I'm not saying you have no chance, but it's going to be hard with those test scores. Good luck and let us know how it turns out!</p>

<p>My daughter is a junior in M&T. I think your chances are quite good.</p>
