First and Last Chance thread :)

<p>Hi CC, this is my first post after lurking for a few months. I think this is a great community to come to for college help and would really appreciate if someone would chance me.</p>

<p>Applying to CALS as Env Sci major, possibly CAS as alternate.
I was choosing between Bio Sciences and Env Sci as a major, decided on ES since my bio sat and course grades are mediocre at best, even if my chem is better. Also, not taking either of the APs, so the choice was pretty clear. The only thing is that I don't really have many outside experiences with ES outside from the class, so I might end up talking about ag/life sciences as a whole in my supplement.</p>

<p>3.7 UW GPA (no weighted, no class rank)
2300 SAT R (740 CR, 760 M, 800 W)
SATIIs: Math II 720, Chem 740, USH 720, Bio 660
AP Euro H: 5 (school doesn't offer any AP classes, so self-study)
Self-studying to take Calc AB, Psych, Env Science this May (don't know if that makes a difference this late in the game)
National Merit Semi-Finalist
National Achievement Semi-FInalist</p>

<p>Extracurrics: Been in 5-6 clubs/peer tutoring orgs for 4 years, but no leadership positions...
Active in church groups for 6 years if that makes a difference.
25 volunteer hours teaching soph year, 40 at clinic junior year, in process of doing 150 senior year teaching special needs kindergarteners</p>

<p>Thanks in advance.</p>

<p>Good chance. Good luck!</p>

<p>Very good chance</p>

<p>Strong Applicant!</p>
