<p>guys sooo do you think I would be competitive for UVA?</p>

<p>only time will tell. I've seen many people both admitted and waitlisted with your stats. I think your ECs will get you in no problem though.</p>

<p>projected UW: 3.57</p>

<p>seems a little low, but you should give it a try anyway.</p>

<p>If you're OOS, I would encourage you to retake the SAT I. (Your subject test scores are great, so you most likely can pull your score up.) This might help offset your GPA somewhat. Good luck!</p>

<p>So lucky our instate. My parents were going to buy a house in UVA just for all the people in my family to have a better shot into the school... To bad you have to actually live there lol. But anyways I would say you have a good shot at UVA.</p>

<p>haha that soo true. Virginia is a pretty boring place to live. so guys, I was wondering if anyone here could recommend something else I can add to the ECs?? are there any awards or something that you guys think will help my app?</p>

<p>Borderline at this point. Padding your extracurriculars at this stage won't make a difference.</p>

<p>Yes you are competitive. I would not focus on the UW GPA you are obviously taking honors and AP classes. Retake the SAT or try the ACT although your current score would not exclude you. Nothing is a guarantee when you are considering schools like UVA.</p>

<p>Your EC's look pretty good. My advice is instead of trying to boost your EC's more, try to improve your SAT score. A 2020 super scored is a bit low. However, your definitely competitive seeing as your instate.</p>

<p>update: I just got a mail of my schedule and have an option of changing it by the end of the week.</p>

<p>This is what I have signed up to take:
AP Lit
AP Comparative
AP Bio
AP Physics
Human Anatomy and Physiology
AP Calc AB
Engineering Physics 2</p>

<p>This is what I want to do now:
AP Lit
AP Compartive
AP Bio
Human Anatomy and Physiology
Exploring Health Sciences
Exploring Language of Medicine
AP Calc AB</p>

<p>the first is much more rigorous, but the second one is the one i am more interested in? i only chose the 1st list cause my parents forced me</p>

<p>yes. you are competitive.</p>

<p>I am instate with similar stats but much higher SAT and I was rejected this year. Maybe next year will be less competitive though.</p>

<p>Oldtown, on the Notre Dame thread you say you're a parent. Which is it? And are you saying that you got into ND honors and William and Mary but not U-Va in state? Seems very odd.</p>

<p>dropping AP Physics and Engineering Physics 2? Those were some of my favorite classes this year.</p>
