GA Tech or UGA w/bad GPA, avg SAT

<p>Hi i cant sleep and i just came across this website, if you'd look me over id appreciate it.</p>

<p>GPA: 3.4ish
Classes Taken: AP US, AP phys. and rest honors throughout highschool and a buncha computer classes
EC's: Random clubs spanish club, international club, some other ones i dont really remember
SAT: i gotta 1410 on the PSAT havent taken the SAT yet</p>

<p>Im a junior right now and i know my grades arent so great AND i havent taken many EC's compared to everyone else, looking at highschool i wish i took it more seriously but do you think its possible to get into maybe UGA or Tech? thanks again in advance</p>

<p>oh yea im pakistani so that may help</p>

<p>Are you from Georgia? If so, your PSAT scores are good; if you can score the same or better on the SAT's you should be good for UGA. You have time to bring your GPA up as you are a junior. EC's aren't that critical for UGA. Work hard this year and next; you stand a very good chance.</p>

<p>try and get all As this year, you can have a good shot. junior year is most important. . .all A's is possible with some serious motivation.
is your gpa weighted or unweighted?</p>

<p>is your psat score including writing? or is it the math and verbal?</p>

<p>Aim for a 3.75 and you will qualify for scholarships. I think that for Tech, you are fine. They are more interested in test scores and individual grades in math/science classes. </p>

<p>When I visited UGA, the adcom ranked the 3 most important factors in a admissions in order:</p>

<li>Rigor of Curriculum</li>
<li>Test Scores.</li>

<p>They REALLY want to see good GPAs. I don't know if this is a fluke or not, but I know a kid who had a 3.3 GPA and 1420 SAT who didn't get in. On the other hand, I know people with 1000s on the SAT who got in. </p>

<p>So, this year, aim to pull up your GPA a lot. Then, do well on the SAT again, and take some AP classes your senior year.</p>

<p>Yea that PSAT is the old one including math and verbal
Im from Georgia
3.4 unweighted</p>

<p>Wow thats a BIG relief i thought i wouldnt get into any colleges at all. I dont think my GPA coming up much this year but ill try really hard now that i know what i need to do. One more questions i heard colleges like if you send your application in early, would i not want to do that since im still bringing my grades up?</p>

<p>No, apply EA to UGA. GT only has one regular date to apply. Also, browse through the UGA website. I think you'll get in.</p>

<p>3.4 unweighted is just fine dude. If you're taking tough classes as you say you are, you should be fine. Your grades this year are important. . .also, if 1400 is just math and verbal and not writing, you are in very very good shape. I think you'll get into both if you do well your junior year.</p>

<p>You're going to need at least a 3.7 and a 1300. UGA I think you can cut it with a 3.6 1220. Personally I think UGA is getting too hard to get into for no reason. It's an average school.</p>

<p>Also, being pakistani isn't going to do a thing for you. You guys are the majority at tech.</p>

<p>you have a good chance if SAT> 1300.</p>
