<p>Hi everyone :) I just finished my junior year of high school, and I am planning on applying to Wake Forest early decision in about a week or so. I'm hoping to know before the start of my senior year whether or not I've been accepted. Based on what I'm about to share, do you think I'll be accepted? I'm very nervous, because Wake is my dream school and I've had my heart set on it for about three years. Thank you!</p>

<p>Also, I don't know how much this contributes but my brother is going to be a Junior at Wake Forest this coming year. He has very high grades (his GPA is a 3.75). He applied early decision to Wake Forest and was deferred, worked extremely hard his senior year to improve his grades and SAT scores, and was accepted regular decision. He absolutely loves Wake Forest, and has nothing but good things to say about his experiences at Wake.</p>
<p>Thank you so much for reading this (if you did) and I would love your opinion. I really have my heart and mind set on Wake Forest, and I would love to hear what you think of my chances of being accepted early decision (or if you don't think I will be accepted early decision, please let me know if you think I will be accepted regular decision). Thank you again!</p>
