Please Chance Me

<p>(Out of State)</p>

<p>SAT: 2140
Math- 790
Reading- 710
Writing- 640
(taken only once)</p>

<p>Cumulative gpa of first three years: 3.22 (unweighted)
However I feel there has been a significant upward trend in my grades:
(UW=Unweighted)
Freshman (3.0 UW)- mostly B's and one C
Sophomore (3.17 UW)- Mostly B+'s, one C+, one A-
Junior (3.33 UW)- three A-'s, two B's, one B+
Senior Year Quarter 1 (3.7 UW)- two A+'s, one A, three B+'s</p>

<p>What are my chances based on just that info?</p>

<p>(edit: other info= Applied priority, currently attend a private "prep" high school) </p>

<p>Thank you</p>

<p>I don't get your GPA but you SAT is very good and should get you into UMD.</p>

<p>I think you are in.</p>

<p>Hey I'm really worried since I'm out of state, can I get a few more opinions on whether I have a chance?????</p>

<p>Also is there a chance the decision could come in the mail today? (I'm in NJ)</p>

<p>GPA is ehh but your SAT scores are strong and should make up for it. May come down to your recs or ECs whether or not you get in regular or freshman connection. Best of luck!</p>

<p>GPA isn't great, but your SAT scores are solid and the upward trend is definitely a good thing. If you took a rigorous schedule and have good ECs and essays, you should have a chance.</p>

<p>Zackst- UMD takes approx 45% of its students from out of state. You have a good chance. They mostly look at SAT then GPA.</p>

<p>You sure??</p>

<p>ugh today is gonna be a very long day. I cannot believe its only tuesday, yesterday legitimately felt like a whole week.</p>

<p>I heard they only take 35% oos?</p>

<p>I heard 35% oos as well</p>

<p>I heard 25% out of state.... and do they really look at your SATs before your GPA???? crap.</p>

<p>Wait sbb1994 who said they look at SAT before GPA?</p>

<p>Maryland loves to accept out of state students as they get much more money that way. This is a business as much as it is an institution of higher learning. </p>

<p>Out of state students can get accepted with much lower GPA's than instate students. Example a student from Cary, NC was accepted for fall admission with a 2.6 unweighted gpa. No they were not an athlete or had any special talents. </p>

<p>The acceptance rate for out of state for College Park is posted online in many different websites. Generally it states 35%, it has been much higher since 2005, again it is all about the $.</p>

<p>Given schools in NC have only about a 12% out of state acceptance. Maryland's is quite high.</p>

<p>Ps i got in :d</p>
