<p>While your ACT is above average for last year's admitted freshman your UW GPA of 3.33 is well below. That makes for a tough profile. Your URM status will be a boost but it's also hard to gauge how much help it will be. For me that makes USC a bit of a reach, not out of the question, but your essays, recommendations etc are going to be especially important.</p>
