Boston University</p>

<p>I am absolutely in love with Duke. I already sent in my supplement and am sending in my general common app this weekend. I know GPA is low, but with EC's and test scores and personal stuff (essays, recs), how do you guys think I will do? I got straight As first quarter senior year in an incredibly rigorous curriculum. I also have legacy at Duke with a parent who contributes a decent amount of money. What do you think about other schools? Will chance back!</p>

<p>Senior year classes-
AP Spanish Lang, Multivariable Calculus, AP Physics C, AP English Lang, History elective</p>

<p>[] ACT: 32 (Retook in October hopefully 33+)
[] GPA: 3.6 Weighted, I'm taking the most rigorous curriculum possible
SIGNIFICANT upward trend -sophomore year 3.35 junior year- 3.8, senior year first quarter 4.55 weighted
[] Rank: School doesn't rank
[] EC's: SGA President (Senior Year), Junior Class President, Editor-in-Chief of Newspaper, Yearbook Editor, Captain of Cross Country Team, Tour Guide, Ambassador of Prestigious Summer Travel Program, Student Conductor/Director of show band which was nominated for national award, been playing piano for 11 years, participated in many state competitions. 200+ Hours of community service in Spain, Morocco, Peru. did Summer internship in Boston last july</p>

[] Essays: very good memorable essay about music and effect on me.
[] Why Duke: very good, not like the ordinary why duke
[] Teacher Recs: Very close with teachers, great recs
[] Counselor Rec: great
[] Hook (if any): legacy at Duke and Tufts</p>

[] State or Country: Maryland
[] School Type: Private, VERY competitive
[] Ethnicity: White (50% Lebanese.. so maybe Arab American )
[] Gender: Male</p>

<p>What's your UW GPA? </p>

<p>Your As won't help because you're applying ED so no senior grades are shown.</p>

<p>You have a chance due to legacy- Duke - low reach</p>

<p>First quarter senior grades are sent for ED. My school already sent them. My UW GPA (not factoring senior first quarter) is 3.4. Anyone else. Please chance for other schools too! Thanks!</p>

<p>With legacy you have a shot, but its still a bit of a low reach for you, hopefully theyll be forgiving with your grades because you clearly are capable. If you pulled up your ACT at least a point youll have a better shot.
Good luck!!

<p>Might also look at Holy Cross-similar to many of the other schools.</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>a good GPA is a prerequisite and a 3.6 just doesn't cut it, but with legacy plus ED plus passable scores I'll make it a low reach. good luck!</p>

<p>can anyone chance me for my other schools too??</p>

<p>anyone for my other schools?? will chance back!</p>
