Chances out of state?

<p>I'm visiting William and Mary this October and want to know what you guys think of my chances.</p>

<p>GPA: 3.8w but good grade trend (3.5 frosh... 3.6 soph... 4.3 junior)
Class Rank: 20/210</p>

<p>SAT I- M: 670
CR: 790
W: 750</p>

<p>SAT II- US: 790
Bio: 750</p>

<p>AP- US His: 5 Bio: 5</p>

Basketball: 9-12
Cross Country:10-12 captain
National Honor Society: 12</p>

<p>So there it is. I would really appreciate any imput about my chances. Thanks. (By the way, I'm out of state.)</p>

<p>Your gpa is low, and with only 2 APs they might question your strength of schedule. Bad strength + not top grades isn't good. However, W&M is not a strictly numbers driven school, and they will look at your entire application. They will like the upwards trend. If you can show a big commitment to one of those ECs, that would be helpful.</p>

<p>W&M out of state is very hard to get in.</p>

<p>my school only offers 4 ap classes (2 per year starting junior year.) So technically, my schedule's not really weak.</p>

<p>are you a male or a female? i believe, it is more difficult to gain admission as a female because more females apply to w&m for some reason. either way out of state admission is extremely competitive.</p>

<p>i'm a male.</p>

<p>if your school doesn't offer many APs, than that makes your app much stronger, and in that light I think you have a solid chance (it's still very competitive, obviously)</p>

<p>Hey BigE,</p>

<p>What state are you from? If you are visiting in October, I'm going to guess you are from the East Coast, which doesn't help you much.</p>

<p>You have good SAT I & IIs, so that helps.</p>

<p>Your grades will be OK with your upward progression and NHS. I hope you took the "Most Challenging Courseload Available," though. If you didn't, you may have a problem.</p>

<p>I think your acceptance will be sealed with good recommendations and an excellent portrayal of who you are and why W&M is the place for you in your application. Obviously, applying ED will help.</p>

<p>If you have any questions about W&M and admissions, feel free to ask me.</p>

<p>Good luck!
