<p>Thanks!! I will chance back!!!!!!</p>


<p>Right now you are a reach. Retake the SAT and shoot for a 2200+ score to have a good chance.</p>

<p>I agree with eziamm. At least 2100 SAT is recommended and your GPA is slightly low.</p>

<p>Good year to apply to Michigan, because they probably need out of state tuition.</p>

<p>^^not really...admission standards are getting tougher, especially for OOS</p>

<p>Ya, it's getting harder, especially for OOS students.</p>

<p>I'd say you are a reach.</p>

<p>Thanks guys! I was going to make UMich my reach. I was just curious if there was even a point in applying. I wasn't too sure if it was too far out of my league.</p>
