<p>I know you guys can't really give an accurate/official rating, but any help would be greatly appreciated. Please give me your evalution on my chances at getting into UT Austin. </p>
<p>I'm Instate, so that should be a bit better...</p>
<p>GPA: 4.22 (weighted, out of a 5.0 scale)
Rank: not sure at the moment, top quarter for sure. My school's really competitive so I don't know if I'm in top 10%
Honors class: All Honors class except for half of Geometry and Pre-calc. I have gotten mostly A's and some B's.
Extra curricular activities:</p>
<li>Model UN </li>
<li>Tennis for freshman year (don't know if i should mention that on apps)</li>
<li>Orchestra for freshman year (don't know if i should mention that on apps)</li>
<li>Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) Officer - it's an organization that encourages students to become interested in a health care proffession. </li>
<li>Health Science and Technology - this is the actually class that sponsers HOSA, we do a clinical rotation where two days a week I go to a hospital and study a certain 'section' of it. We get to go in the Operating Room (OR), the Recovery Room (RR), Labor/Delivery, Radiology, BioMedical Engineering, etc.
<p>I also am a mentor in the Nationwide Big Brother, Big Sister program where one day a week, I go and mentor my 'little sister'.
- I also volunteer at local elementaries right after school where I help kids with math. </p>
<p>The thing about UT Austin is that the school has a HUGE student body. I have already had my fair share of a huge class (my high school class
(just my class alone) numbered around 1200 students). I am trying to be "a big fish in a small pond" so smaller colleges are on my preference list too.
However, I don't want it small to the point of obscurity. The thing about the smaller texas colleges is that it's located in the middle of nowhere (to use that expression loosely). I would much prefer a urban setting, which pulls me towards UT in comparison to...oh, I don't know, Texas Tech or Baylor. </p>
<p>Although Baylor is on my list too, just in case.
