Illinois state admission help

<p>Or U of I, purdue, depaul, marquette...</p>

<p>I actually would really like to stay in state, so i just put purdue and marquette for more options(dad went to MU).
As of now, i have a 3.3 gpa, hopefully will get it to a 3.5 by the end of this year (junior in high school). </p>

<p>I recieved a 29 on my act, before i was in a prep class. Now I'm pretty confident i can hit that 30 mark in the next exam in march.</p>

<p>I plan on majoring in accounting, or possibly doubling up with finance, especially since there are a lot of overlapping classes. I know my gpa is low, but its mainly due to laziness/other interests. I've picked things up recently. I have been in all honors classes up until dropping to "normal" Alg 2/trig this year, and I'm in AP english III, and AP cisco I (networking). I've heard colleges take a peak at what you're taking senior year, and I'm taking all honors with "normal" Alg 3/trig 2, AP Econ, and AP accounting. ISU only requires 2 years of language, 2 years of science(not sure), and 3 of math. I'll have 4 years in each.</p>

<p>I know i don't have a very realistic chance of gettting into the U of I (illinois) business school, but what about ISU, or are there better opportunities for me to hit it big in accounting in Chicago?</p>

<p>ECs: 2 year soccer player, currently in rugby (junior and senior year), spanish club, key club, diversity club, volunteer at Park Lawn(agency for mentally challenged adults), US certified soccer referee, possibly a great internship or even a job at a fast growing business downtown Chicago within a few months (family connects).</p>

<p>Any input would be appreciated</p>

<p>BTW the illinois average act score is 21.</p>

<p>anyone? i also go to a top 50 catholic high school</p>
