<p>Your chances are not that great, that 3.25 is pretty weak. Even if you're an Illinois resident, UIUC will be somewhat of a reach. Your ACT score simply fits their average but is nothing spectacular. Also your ECs are pretty solid but again, it is not spectacular. I don't really see anything that would make the admissions officer want to admit you in spite of your GPA. UW-Madison will for sure be a reach and UIUC will be a slightly lesser reach. If you haven't already, apply to some safeties.</p>

<p>Yeah I know.. I didn't really care about school junior year so that brought it down badly. I do have some safeties tho. I wrote a very good essay (as told by several ap comp teachers) so I hope it can swing them. Thnx for the honest outlook.</p>

<p>Agreed, a Madison rejection shouldn't come as a total~ surprise, but you should still apply, you still have a possibility. Although Urbana I'd call a low reach if your essays are fantastic. Hopefully they're a foot in the door. Good luck!</p>
