I started an application to Tulane today, and I kind of like the idea of going down south for school!
I would be applying as an international relations major to Tulane!
What do you think my chances are?
I have approximately a 3.7 UW GPA, however my school does not give out weighted or actual GPAs, so I only know my percentage is a 92.6 and 92.6/25 = 3.7.
Upward trend from eighth grade to now. My school has us take a few high school courses in our eighth grade that go on our transcript. With a more advanced schedule each year.
I have no idea what my weighted GPA would be, because our school does not provide them. However, my school only offers two honors courses for 9th and 10th graders and I took both of them. APs are not really accessible until sophomore year, when you can take one AP, and my schedule conflicted so I could not. I took 3 APs this year, and am taking 4 next year.
I have a 31 on the ACT (English: 31 Math: 28 Reading: 33 Science: 31). I am retaking in September and HOPING and PRAYING for a 32-33.
By the way, the ACT middle 50% for The George Washington University is 27-31. They do not disclose the average GPA.
7 AP courses by graduations (AP Lang, AP Lit, AP US History, AP Cogo, AP Macro, AP Spanish, and AP Environmental Science)
Maybe possible interesting fact, I have voluntarily taken two online courses through my high school, and many people do not take this opportunity.
300+ hours of working at a coffee shop.
