Judge my chances please

<p>Hi all,</p>

<p>I am an International student, currently studying 12th Grade in the United Arab Emirates in a school which follows Indian curriculum CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education).</p>

<p>I just wanted to know what my chances are in getting admission into University of Minnesota for Aeronautical Engineering.</p>

<p>I don’t have GPA grading in my school. The grading is purely based on marks obtained:
9th - 85%
10th - 90%
11th - 80%</p>

<p>If my school was giving GPA grading then my grading MIGHT (coz there is not accurate grading for the Indian curriculum) look like this:-
9th – 3.7+ / 4.0 (coz I got A’s in all my subjects)
10th – 3.7/4.0+ (coz I got A’s in all my subjects)
11th – 3.2-3.4 / 4.0 (coz I got a few A’s and a few B’s)</p>

<p>I had also recieved a half-fee scholarship in grade 11.</p>

I have been selected to attend the Global Young Leaders’ Conference (GYLC) in Washington/New York this year.
Made Robot for science exhibition
Created a presentation on the periodic table
Helped the team in coming 3rd in an inter-school robot competition
Part of the school Anti-Smoking Committee
I have been learning Indian Carnatic Music vocal for over 10 years and have given a 2 and half hour concert. I have also been learning Carnatic Music violin for over 3 years. </p>

MATH - 700
CR - 600
Planning to give it again to improve my score (hopefully 1350+).</p>

<p>Going to give SAT II's in November. Will get above 750 in maths, physics and chemistry.</p>

<p>Teacher Recommendations will be really good. Not sure what the school counsellor will write (but got info from previous school mates in US universities that we usually get really good recs).</p>

<p>Am going to start working on the essays when the apps are released and HOPEFULLY they should be good.</p>

<p>Will appreciate all responses. good as well as bad.</p>

<p>Thanks all.</p>

<p>Your numbers may be possibly a little low, but you sound like you may be URM and International? I wouldn't say it is a safe, safe school, but not a huge reach either.</p>

<p>With regards to the liberal arts school, a 1350 is a shoe in and your grades are fine. the admittance rate is around 70% when i last checked and your test scores are far above the mean. Some of the specialty programs and scholarships require test scores around the 1350 range, but that is something you should check out with the school.</p>
