Kinda messed my Highschool career. Poop.

<p>Soo...I want to go to Tulane, Case Western, Wake Forest, Kenyon, Denison, Ohio State Unvi., Boston Univ., University of Michgan</p>

<p>(KINDA IMPORTANT) I transfered at the beginning of my soph. year from public to private school. My school is easily the hardest in the state and one of the best in the nation (I am actually serious, I know a lot of kids say that but mine is truly hard). So my soph. year was not so smooth (school took some time to get used to), Kinda miserable at the school so I didn't exactly try very hard. But I guess the college won't know so it doesn't matter.</p>

<p>OSU is my number one choice, so what are my chances?</p>

<p>If you attend a top prep school, your counselor is by far your best source of info on where you can get in. Once you get below the top 20-25 schools, many schools are happy to take a 3.0 from a rigorous prep school. Especially if you have strong scores.</p>

<p>Well he told me I have a 50/50 chance of getting in at OSU, and my other counselor said it is a stretch. So I don’t know what to believe, can you chance me at Tulane, OSU and BU please? :)</p>

<p>You know I’d believe your whole “my grades are so deflated but I’m still smart and my school is just hard” story if your SAT scores weren’t so bad. You barely scored over the national average. My GPA is higher than yours, my SAT is 250 points higher, I go to the number one API school in the nation, second in the world. I’m not applying to Michigan cause I don’t have a 3.8+ and Wake Forest is my reach school. Sorry if that sounded somewhat rude, but it’s the truth.</p>

<p>OSU (Columbus) is going to be a reach/high reach. You are barely within the 50% median SAT score and your GPA is really going to hurt you. Maybe consider going to OSU Mansfield and then transferring if you don’t get in to Columbus.</p>

<p>Tulane is going to be a high reach. You are in the lower 25% for SAT score and GPA will kill you.</p>

<p>Michigan - high reach.</p>

<p>BU - high reach.</p>

<p>You need to have some safeties lined up just in case.</p>

<p>Good luck. :)</p>

<p>Well I’m curious, you somehow got into a top private high school. Most are looking for the same things top colleges are. What did they see in you?</p>

<p>Ehhhh sec4life, you might be a bit harsh. The environment on CC is definitely competitive and it has its share of haughty private school kids (which is why I don’t dare go near the prep school boards) but I didn’t get that sense from OP at all. </p>

<p>I think CINCI is being pretty honest here. The college will know about your hs rigor because they’ll receive your school profile. Your objective statistics do look low but I really do think you have a decent chance at all of them. Probably having a definite safety school would be good though.</p>

<p>Highschool can be hard, and some people just don’t adjust to traditional school environments well. Or are great test takers. It doesn’t mean you’re not capable. If you don’t get in to your top choices your first time around you can always have a great year at your safety and then transfer. </p>

<p>Lol in a previous thread you made you said you got a 2000 SAT and 30 ACT. With that, you would definitely have a chance. with the one you posted here, it’s kind of a slim chance. Something’s sketch. Your GPA is fairly low, and unless everyone at your school has around that GPA, I would say it’s a bit iffy…</p>

<p>Wake forest is a reach</p>

<p>Unfortunately I am pretty young for my grade, I never really matured until my senior year, well to answer your question I took a test at the school to get in, and I scored a 91% percentile for math, my english was well below 30 though. It is representative in my SAT scores, I got a 720 on math, 500 cr, and 480 wr</p>

<p>Are you an athlete or underrepresented minority?</p>
