<p>Thank you!</p>

<p>Vandy a definite stretch, both your GPA and SAT a bit low, but not impossible of course. Same for Emory. Because you are a URM, it is always tough to know about schools like these. State schools are tough to predict because you are OOS, except for FLA, but legacy at Michigan might help some. Going strictly by stats you are borderline except for FLA. Tulane I think you have a decent shot at, being Hispanic will help.</p>

<p>I agree. Your status as a URM gives you a slight edge, but I think that in general, Vandy and Emory would be stretches. I think you have a decent shot at Michigan, Texas, and Wisconsin, though, as well as at Tulane. I'm almost certain you'll get into University of Florida. Good luck!</p>

<p>thanks.... anyone else?</p>

<p>Good chance at Michigan, but your GPA is a little low. Vandy and Emory will be low reaches because your stats are slightly below average. Although you are qualified for Tulane they have a really low admittance rate, so don't count on it. U of Florida you are in for sure. Wisconsin and Texas you should be in also.</p>

<p>Good Luck!</p>
