early decision or not... my chances~

<p>Should I attempt at Early Decision or is it a waste of time?</p>

<p>1190 SAT (570V,620M)
1380 SAT (630V,750M)</p>

<p>28 ACT
Re-taking in October</p>

<p>3.885 Weighted GPA
Mostly honors, 4 AP classes by the end of my senior year.</p>

<p>I think I'll have a really good recommendation... Essays are pretty decent... Extracurriculars are decent... and have several local awards for violin...</p>

<p>With ED, good chance. The water is warm but AP courseload was a tad bit light.</p>

<p>You may want to ask how many A.P. classes were offered to him before making judgments like that.</p>

<p>not many AP classes were available to me b/c i moved to a new school which completely screwed up some of my classes...</p>


<p>FYI: your SAT I is near the average and within the middle 50% range (1310-1480); the ACT's middle 50% range was 29-33 for 03-04 freshman, so it would be great if you can raise your ACT score. Make sure you submit a strong essay also. </p>

<p>Good luck!</p>
