<p>Reflection
•Strengths: Leadership, Experience (Mainly related to my intended major), ambition, Recommendations’, and Extracurricular
•Weaknesses: GPA
•I know my grades aren’t the best, but the reason for that is because I was always busy with school, and extracurricular activities. And I'm not using that as an excuse at all, but i think admissions will take that into consideration. And it wasn’t like I joined every club available just to be in them, I was an active member of each one, and I have leadership roles in many of them. So do you think that I have a chance at all?</p>

<p>What schools are you applying to? It all depends on that...the SAT scores are pretty low but your ECs look good.</p>

<p>What do you mean what schools? The University of Michigan. Haha. To the Kenisology school.</p>

<p>This is a chance me thread btw. Haha.</p>

<p>Bump! Please Chance!</p>

<p>its spelled kinesiology..</p>

<p>i got deferred from kinesiology with a 26 ACT 3.6 GPA and great extra curricular activities if that helps you out.</p>

<p>your SAT is equivalent to an ACT of 22. and your GPA is very low. i'd say maybe a 10% chance... but best of luck!</p>

<p>Very reasonable chance as you are a URM along with good ec's. Good luck.</p>

<p>michigan doesn't give any advantages to URM's.. but after reading your EC's again i'd maybe say a 25%</p>

<p>Uh - oh yeah they do - I can assure you.</p>
