Realistically, what kind of college could I get into?

<p>I'm a senior. I have good grades, but i'm nothing amazing.</p>

<p>GPA weighted: 4.0
unweighted: 3.76</p>

<p>Class rank: 17</p>


<p>EC-Key club,I tried to be in the band but I quit, Student council (not really active)</p>

<p>I took a summer science program. Also, I took a statistics class (college). I probably have about 10 volunteer hours. </p>

<p>Should I take the ACT again? What colleges could I apply to? Am I good enough for at least a decent college?</p>

<p>Suggestions? I live in New Orleans.</p>

<p>I would retake your ACT, so it will match up with your GPA.
Schools to Consider:</p>

Trinity College

<p>Definitely a good school no matter what.</p>

<p>On taking the ACT again, do you think you'll improve? How much did you study last time? How have you done on practice tests? As your grades are better than your ACT, relatively speaking, taking it again would help.</p>

<p>As things stand now -- 25 ACT = about 1150 SAT (CR+M) = about 1710 (CR+M+W). When it comes out, look at the new USNews&World Report College guide -- for National Universities, there are a number of schools ranked in the 50-75 range where your stats begin to fit in. Almost anything 100 or lower looks like a match or a safety (This is based purely on numbers -- I know little about these schools)</p>

<p>Wouldn't a 25 ACT be equivalent to about a 1670 SAT? I'm just using ratios, by the way.</p>

<p>Thanks for pointing it out -- I was converting to SAT 1600, not SAT 2400 (mainly because the last years USN&WR uses SAT 1600 for it's comparisons). I fixed my post to clarify.</p>

<p>I took it twice, 1st I got a 23 (I forgot my calculator), second time, a 25. I studied a little for the second one. I'm not sure if i'll improve. I only went up one point each in science and math. Math really brings EVERYTHING down, it ruins my GPA, and my test scores. </p>

<p>I'll look at those schools though, thanks!</p>

<p>Ok -- you should definately study!!! If your family can afford it, consider an ACT prep course. The math portion can often be brought up with preparation.</p>

<p>You should get into a good school regardless -- bring it up, and you have a shot at a REALLY good school.</p>

<p>Well, i'm a senior now, do I have time for a course? We most likely don't have the money anyway. I'll just use some old ACT books and study! I may take it again soon, october.</p>

<p>All of your state schools would be good options, no matter where you live.</p>
