My Chances at the Univeristy of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

<p>Hi, I'm an African American male at an arts high school, I am also instate. Well here are my stats:</p>

<p>GPA: 3.3 UW/3.6W
SAT: 1100
ACT: 26
Rank: Top 50%</p>

Octagon (Community Service)

Excellence in Spanish, US History, Environmental Science, and Biology</p>

<p>NO AP's, only Honors English 4
Write Excellent Essay, will get excellent recommendations

<p>try another forum - I am not really sure I can recommend some schools.</p>

<p>It's going to be a stretch for UNC Chapel Hill for you. Give it a try, however, as you never know. What are you interested in studying? You'd be a good fit for UNC-Ashville or one of the other UNC campuses. Would you be open to private schools as well? If so, do you want to stay in the southeast/north carolina or would you consider other parts of the country as well? Do you have any preferences about school size, location, type, etc.?</p>

<p>I plan on applying ED/EA, will that help?</p>

<p>Yes, probably. Again, give it a shot - nothing ventured, nothing gained. Hope you come back and tell me I was ful lof it for saying it was going to be a stretch! Best of luck!!!!!!</p>

<p>UNC is EA right?</p>

<p>Yes, UNC is EA</p>

<p>Um, I think it will deffinitly be a long streatch. You probably need to strengthen you EC's, maybe gain a few more awards, even though thats not the "biggest" thing. I've heard its also almost impossible to get in if you are from out of state, but I don't know how muc I belivie that. You need to deffinitly get a better score on the SAT II's, maybe around a 1250 would deffinitly help, and maybe, possibly try ranking higher in your class...hope I helped!</p>

<p>you have a</p>

<p>okay chance, but that's only becuase you're a resident and a urm, i wouldn't expect any miracles though, you have a really low rank, if you were top25% this might be a different story, but alas, it is not</p>

<p>What is your actual SAT score? I saw something different on another thread. Is 1100 just your goal?</p>

<p>As far as a match out of state, what about Mary Washington? You are a URM, and a male. It really looks like a wonderful school and D would flourish-but the girl/guy is really twisted . Like almost 65-35.</p>

<p>i think that EA you have a shot, because the average gpa in the lower quartiles is about an 1190, and the average act is 27, with an average gpa of 4.1. So your ACT is just a little bit off, but your gpa and rank is what will hurt you.</p>

<p>i think that you have a shot, but its not a great shot.</p>

<p>good luck! and i hope you get in!</p>

<p>Any other colleges suggested, any one else?</p>

<p>anyone, anybody? please respond.</p>
