IU - safety?

<p>I'm not sure if there is such a thing as a safety anymore? I am only applying to large state universities (PSU, MD, UF, IU, etc.). So far, IU is my only "safety," but I'm not even sure if that is true. </p>

<p>My ACT comp. is 28
GPA - 3.6 (weighted 4.1)
Some extra-curricular (NHS, Yearbook)
out of state. </p>

<p>Am I crazy to consider IU a safety. </p>


<p>I'm not sure how ACT scores compare to SAT, so I can't say on that, but your GPA is certainly good enough. It really isn't that hard to get into IU, unless you are a music performance major...</p>

<p>u will probaly get in, in 2010 the admissions standard will go up but even then, you will still get in most likely. ditto on the music performance though</p>

<p>Yes it's a safety, I was OOS with a 3.63 GPA and a 29 ACT and they gave me 6K/year to come here.</p>

<p>thanks a lot. I know there aren't any easy answers - but it's still nice to hear.</p>

<p>You will get in, but don't label IU as safety if your going into music, it would then be a reach. But you will 100% be accepted.</p>
