<p>I go to a pretty competative high school. My GPA is really bad though. Unweighted its about a 2.8 and weighted its like a 3.0. I had a strong aversion to homework </p>

<p>Senior Year I plan on straight A’s term 1! (I’ve signed up for 1 AP, 2 honors classes)</p>

<p>However I did pretty well on the SAT, with a 2000 out of 2400. SAT II’s are 740 in World History, 740 in US History, 640 in Literature.</p>

<p>I have good extra curriculars (peer counselor, state finalist for speech and debate team, model UN, various jobs, wrestling team, ski club, cross country team). </p>

<p>I’m probably going to major in international relations. I am a decent writer as well so my essay should hopefuly be decent. I will have a recommendation from my English teacher and my History Honors teacher.</p>

<p>do your homework! :)</p>

<p>your grades are rubbish but your scores are pretty good. You need to retake the SAT and aim for a 2100 to put you over the top.</p>

<p>Idk, its gonna be hard to overcome those grades, especially with no APs so far, though your school may not offer them. I would try to do very well on the SATs and make sure you get straight A's.</p>

<p>I did AP Psychology (junior) and AP European History (senior)</p>

<p>Honestly, I would put a lot of effort into other applications. AU is fast becoming a much more competitive and selective college. The average stats for incoming freshman is about a 3.6 UW GPA and a 1300 SAT score (roughly 650 for each subject). </p>

<p>If AU really is a first choice you need to have a good explanation for your aversion to homework, and show a large increase in your GPA, probably even your test scores. Good luck!</p>
