<p>What do you think? Any chance of money? Getting in?</p>


<p>I think you have a very solid chance for admission to Emory. Your GPA, SAT test scores and EC's are all excellent for admissions consideration.</p>

<p>Your chances for receiving a merit scholarship is a toss-up. Merit scholarships are offered through the Emory Scholars Program -- see my posts below in the thread titled "Emory Scholars". Merit scholarships are highly competitive, and it appears that you might be right on the cusp. </p>

<p>BTW, your weighted and unweighted GPA numbers seem odd -- if you've taken so many AP classes, why isn't your weighted GPA much higher?</p>

<p>Our school grades on a 100 point scale, and weights AP courses 5 points out of 100. Furthermore, on the 4.0 conversion we do not weight over the 4.0 mark, so with a 100 GPA and all AP courses (Theoretically a 105 GPA then), the student is still recognized as having a 4.0 GPA on the 4.0 scale. Essentially though the weight is meaningless, because schools reweight anyway.</p>
