Hi, I submitted my application for the UMN CLA - Mathematics and CLA - Comp Sci on Oct 29th. I’m not expecting to hear back so soon, but I wanted to know thoughts on my stats. They are not that great as I moved to one of the biggest high schools in MN my freshman year and had lots of issues but I’ve grown since then and have many achievements.

Did Common App essay and both supplemental questions, had them checked and edited by Ivy League friends. Feel very proud of them.
Got a letter of rec from my 9th grade Algebra 2 teacher who knows a lot of the stuff I went through personally.
I’m very nervous. My GPA has been rising ever since freshman year, but it took a dip my junior year due to some issues at home. I didn’t address these issues on my application because I didn’t want them to sound like an excuse and didn’t know how to word them properly. Not sure if I should send an email to the U to let them know or not.
Looking for some thoughts, advice, and other college recommendations as I’m still applying!
