So today I found out I didn't get into Loyola Marymount University unfortunately. SCU is my top choice, then LMU. I am afraid that SCU may be harder to get into and that I won't get into either of my top choices. </p>
<p>My ACT is low at a 23
Not sure what my GPA is, I go to a college prep school that doesn't do GPA, only has grades, but I had mostly C's first year, C's and B's second year, B's third year, and A's and B's Senior year.
2 internships, a job (freshman year), community service, played in orchestra 4 years, School Paper 3 years, vice president of Organic NY club, member of Breast Cancer Awareness.
I have a really good essay and I think good recommendations.
I'm from New York, part Hispanic, not full, and didn't apply for financial aid.
I also emailed an SCU admissions rep because after my campus visit I had a lot more to say about what I liked about SCU.</p>
<p>I live with my dad in New York and want to go to a warm state for college with family near by so I applied to mostly schools in Cali because it's awesome! But I am really nervous now after hearing back from LMU. I'm worried my ACT score is too low to get into Santa Clara especially. </p>
<p>I know Santa Clara has a high EA acceptance rate, which gets my hopes up, but there ACT is also higher. So has anyone heard back from SCU yet? Do I have a decent chance at getting admitted? And how hard is it to get into compared with LMU?</p>
<p>Thanks for the responses. Best of luck to all of you!</p>
