<p>Hey, so I recently got my acceptance into Pitt, which I am very excited about, but I did not get into the honors college.
I have a 33 ACT, 1420/2220 SAT, and a 3.34uw/4.2w gpa at a competitive public school.(the difference from uw to w is so great because I have taken all honors, 9 APs and 4 college classes)
I thought getting into the honors college would be a stretch, so I was not surprised that I didn't get in...however my parents are upset that they didn't accept me.</p>
<p>They are threatening to stop me from going to Pitt unless I go Pitt honors so could I have some advice on how to get into it? I'm planning to retake the SAT in december and hopefully boost my math score so that superscored I could maybe have a 1520 SAT.</p>
<p>Also, I have an abundance of extracurriculars (4 leadership positions, 250+ volunteer hours, some state level wins) that I don't think Pitt would know about from my application. I also submitted two letters of rec which I also don't think that Pitt received in time because they were sent the day before I was accepted (It only took them 8 days from when I applied to when I was notified of acceptance). I also sent a very lackluster essay...looking back, probably should not of sent that at all...</p>
<p>Sorry for the lengthy post, but can I please get some advice from someone? Is there a way I can appeal to the honors college?</p>
