<p>Want to start a key club and a french club at my school</p>

<p>did a short exchange program in France</p>

<p>ACT scores are coming soon but i predict between a 27-31
SAT taking next available </p>

<p>What can i do to increase my chances</p>

<p>I want to major in Athletic Training</p>

<p>I did not do as well first semester of junior year, i was having a very successful tennis season, and concentrated more on that then school (immature and dumb of me i know) will this hurt my chances. I got a 3.4 that semester, and Ive heard junior year is the year colleges look at your grades the most</p>

<p>What can i do to increase my chances?</p>

<p>You'll be fine, U of M isn't hugely selective, get over a 29 ACT and you will more than likely get in. Although, on the banks of the red cedar is where it's at, man.</p>

<p>Thanks tcwest2010. anyone else?</p>

<p>get 2000+ on sat and you should probably get in, chance me please</p>

<p>bump? anyone else</p>

<p>Bump. 10 char</p>

<p>I was rejected by Michigan (this is in 2004) with better academic stats, similar EC's, and some nationally recognized awards/scholarships. I'd say that for out of state applicants, your profile puts you at a mid-reach.</p>

<p>From the information on sites that provide information about colleges,</p>

<p>Your Gpa looks okay, though it may be in the middle/lower half of the pool.</p>

<p>Since you didn't take the Sat I yet, I'd say if you can get at least 2000 on it and a 27~31 on the Act, then you'll be have a better chance for admission.</p>

<p>Also, I'm not sure if UoM wants letters of recommendation from your teacher(s), but try to get strong recommendation letters, one of my teachers, who served as a admissions officer told me that the teacher recommendations are actually a decent percent of the acceptance, though they can't "bring back the dead", meaning that they only help to an extent. If you do get letters of rec, I'd recommend getting a letter from both a english/history teacher and a science/math teacher so that you appear well-rounded.</p>

<p>I can get some good letters of recommendation for sure! Thanks Jlee. Anyone else?</p>

<p>Anyone else ? I'll chance you back</p>

<p>I think you have a good chance if you do well on the ACT. I would say your best bet would be to get good test scores and get your app in early! </p>

<p>Good luck!</p>
