</ul>

<p>*- will this help me get into uconn? they have a very low % of hispanics.</p>

<p>ouch sorry but your scores are way too low. Race plays a very little decision too, like if your border line. Id say this is a reach, but good luck, prove me wrong! :)</p>

<p>I think you have a chance! and don't worry my SAT scores are low too. Just make the best out pf your essay</p>

<p>its definitely a reach for you, because your gpa is pretty low for taking no APs and only two honors, colleges care about the rigor of your courses. Also I think your Sat in itself may keep you out of the running but you never really know goodluck! Where else are you applying?</p>

<p>Anything is possible, apply and see what happens. Make the best out of your essay</p>

<p>low scores but you should still apply and you might get in depending on your essay.
