Penn State University Park: Too Late?

<p>I know Penn State has rolling admissions, but everyone knows that the chances of getting in to those kinds of schools drops significantly once you get to this part of the year. I know I shouldn't have waited this long..but a combination of some at home issues has really kept me from being able to get ready for college as far as SATs and those kinds of things but I'm finally ready to get it in motion. I'm pretty sure my chances are fairly shot especially because I won't be able to apply until mid-February because of SAT scores and I'm feeling very discouraged. I feel a LITTLE better since the major I'm intending to declare isn't really one of the more competitive majors like the College of Engineering has, but let's see what you guys think anyway...</p>

<p>Intended major: Russian, later plan to couple it with international politics
GPA: 3.98 UW/5.479 W
Rank: 1 out of 410
AP classes: Spanish 5, US History I and II, Chemistry I and II, Biology, English Lit
Honors classes: Physics, Algebra II, Pre-calc/Trigonometry, Chemistry, English, etc pretty much every non-AP class I've taken has been honors.
SAT score: Have not yet received scores, anticipating 1850 or better based on past PSAT scores (bad indicator, I know, but at least it's something..)
Extra-curriculars: Model UN, Mock trial, Speech and Debate, Literary Magazine, Foreign Language Club, National Spanish Honor Society. </p>

<p>What do you guys think (if my chances are even above like 0%)? :(</p>

<p>it’s hard to tell because your GPA and everything is awesome, but you’re EXTREMELY late which tells admissions that you have little interest, no matter how much you try and convince them otherwise. plus no test scores?!? that could be rough… honestly, i want to see what they decide! this could be interesting!</p>

<p>Pray for 1800+…</p>

<p>You’ll get in if you get over an 1800. Applying late doesn’t hurt your chances of getting in if you have the stats (blue on bubble chart). Applying late only really hurts those who land in the yellow</p>

<p>Also, if you dont get an 1800, your GPA is obviously inflated so yeah you need an 1800</p>

<p>My GPA is inflated? What do you mean, exactly?</p>
