just a little anxious

<p>hey, so i'm a junior in CA, who is curious about my chances. it's been a rough last 2 years, with my mom having to move away and my granmother being really sick (both in my essay) so in anycase, here's my profile:</p>

<p>[ *] ACT Composite: 33
[ *] SAT IIs: Span: 770 Lit: 710
[ *] AP's: Span: 5 Eng: 4 US Hist: 3
[ *] Weighted: 3.53 (to give you an idea of how hard my courses were, i got a 3 out of a possible 4 rating on difficulty that my school has)
[ *] ECs listed on app: football, track, clubs
[ *] Job/Work Experience: did finances for a family friend's company (receipt stuff) and also had a job at a toy store lol
[ *] Essays (subject and responses): already started so they should be good
[ *] Teacher Recs: better than great
[ *] Counselor Rec: great
[ *] School Type: Private, does not rank
[ *] Ethnicity: Hispanic
[ *] Gender:M
[ *] 2 summer courses at a local comm. college- pysch and creative writing, both got A's.
* also got 4 awards at our honors convocation, but not sure that means much really. </p>


<p>good test scores but that gpa is very low especially if the courses are not even the most difficult, I don't really see you getting in, but it is worth a shot.</p>

<p>i have a lower gpa than that and i got in. the urm status and your family's background should definitely help you. also the 4 awards do matter--put them in your activity chart. i think you have a good shot.</p>

<p>just to respond to dirthog, the classes are the most difficult.</p>

<p>how much will being a minority help with Vandy admissions?</p>
