<p>Would a school that accepts 38% of applicants be considered highly selective? Do I have a good chance?</p>

<p>Thank you in advance!</p>

<p>A college with that acceptance level is typically one notch below the very selective. In the USNews ratings for National Universities it is typically in the 35th to 40th ranking.</p>

<p>You might want to post more your question on the chance me forum. Best is if you identify the college.</p>

<p>I agree with fogcity. Need to know the school. Then you can go to c0llegeb0ard or school’s admission website and find their 50% median SAT scores and GAP and see where you are in relation to the school.</p>

<p>It will depend too on the typical success rate applicants from your school have with this particular institution. The sci/math magnet in my state, for example, has an almost 100% acceptance rate to our flagship university despite a much lower overall acceptance rate.</p>

<p>I really don’t think that acceptance percentages are all too accurate of a school’s selectivity. CUNY Hunter, for example, has a 26% admissions rate (apparently less than UChicgao) but their average SATs are in the mid 500s.</p>

<p>The school is Wake Forest</p>

<p>ACT puts you in about the upper 40-50% of entering freshmen. Not sure about your GPA, but Wake Forest reports that:
75% of students are top 10% in HS.
89% of students are top 25%
99% of students are top 50%.</p>

<p>Given your ECs and the school you attend, I would say yes, Wake Forest is a match. It’s pretty selective, but you seem to fit the profile. Good chance of getting in.</p>

<p>If you go to NCSSM, you are a solid match for Wake.</p>
