Chances for UVA, W&M, UofR, W&L, others

<p>Applying Early Action to UVA, George Mason, Christopher Newport, Hampden Sydney, Randolph Macon. Applying Regular to William and Mary, Richmond, and Washington and Lee. I am clearly a Virginia resident. It would be great if I can get an idea of where I can get in and if it will be EA. I'm open to suggestions for other schools too, any advice would be great!</p>

<p>GPA: 4.03 weighted (will probably be a 4.3 by the mid-year report)</p>

<p>SAT: 710 CR 600 M 600 W (just took it for the second time, should be going up)</p>

<p>SAT II's: 730 US History 630 Literature</p>

<p>One C in Hon. Spanish IV, Mostly B's, Plenty of A's</p>

<p>5 AP classes with two 5's so far</p>

<p>Was in IB Middle Years Program (we have no diploma program)</p>

<p>Was in PACE Gifted Program (not as cool as it sounds)</p>

<p>Will need significant financial aid if not a public school</p>

<p>Generally good essays (if I may say so myself) with one that I would consider to be very unique
Great recommendations</p>



<p>Virginia EA = reach (good chance for wait list given solid ECs, decent but not awesome grades, and lower than avg SATs (but hopefully going up)); W&L same as UVA; W&M = low reach (50/50%, slightly more holistic than UVA and ECs will help there); UR high match (50 - 66%); rest matches/safeties. Think about James Madison and VA Tech too.</p>

<p>UVA: reach
George Mason:safety
Christopher Newport:safety
Hampden Sydney:safety
Randolph Macon: safety
William and Mary:high match
Washington and Lee: reach</p>

<p>chance be back!! <a href=“[/url]”></a></p>

<p>Thanks for the help guys, just needed some affirmation of my own ideas. Anyone else with any thoughts?</p>

<p>I’ve also interviewed with W&M and W&L if that changes anything. Anybody else with thoughts? I’ll give you mine back.</p>

<p>I think that you`d be good for all public except maybe UVa. But possibly them too.</p>

<p>i would say assuming your GPA does increase that you can get into most of these schools with a bit of stretching, but UVA is very tough avg GPA is 4.52 (from my school)</p>

<p>Is the fact that I haven’t taken Calculus an issue?</p>


<p>Both UVA and W&M stressed in meetings that my son was in that they expect to see Calculus. If your high school doesn’t offer it, that is a situation they will take into consideration- but otherwise it does make it more difficult to get in without it.</p>

<p>Thank you, because I don’t have Calculus. I’m heavy in the more difficult social sciences though.</p>

<p>UVA: reach
W&M: match
Washington & Lee: reach
URich: low match
George Mason: in
Good luck!</p>
