Scholars RD

<p>I hear that it is only 1500 and above, my SAT scores are 1480.
My GPA is not a 3.8 or higher, but a 3.5 with 6 AP's at the number 13 high school in the country according to newsweek magazine.
My Essays I know are excellent, and I'm hoping my letters of rec are really good.
EC: Varsity Tennis, 4 years, team captain senior year
3 Time Scholastic Athlete (obtained 3.6 or better gpa during season)
Link Crew (12)
200+ community service
Unofficial job, started my own car washing business (it may seem odd but I have made a good amount of money)
Junior Statesmen of America Treasurer (12) participant (11 and 12)</p>

<p>I have shown more interest than I think I have shown in anything before this.</p>

<p>Do I really not have a chance? I know I could wow the admissions people at the interview but I don't know if I could make it that far.</p>

<p>btw- I am a national merit semi-finalist and I put emory down as my first choice school (is it possible to show any more interest?!?!)</p>

<p>bump, please</p>

<p>BUMP, please!</p>

<p>AVERAGE scholar has SAT of 1500, meaning some above and some below. Also, AVERAGE GPA is 4.0.</p>

<p>Good luck!
I have no idea what to think-- I'm applying RD for Scholars (in-state), and have a 1470. I don't know what's going to happen...</p>

<p>That's cool, what are your stats?
I hear they give about 20% of the scholarships just to georgian kids</p>

<p>Oh, really? I didn't know that! I think I'll ultimately end up at Emory. I just have an inkling.</p>

<p>Anywho, my stats are:
1470 SAT I
I don't think they look at the II's, so I won't list those.
4.0 UW (98.6), don't know the weighted.
1/2 of 88</p>

<p>I'm boring. </p>

<p>Good luck to you!</p>

<p>yeah, you are definitely right about the preference for kids in Georgia. As a current scholar, I have noticed that a lot of the scholars are from the southeast (florida, georgia, south carolina, alabama, mississippi, tennessee) If you look at the fine print for some of the scholarships, it will say 'preference for students from Gerogia or southeast.'</p>
