<p>Hello. I'm a new poster here.
I am planning on attending Wash U next fall, that is if I am admitted - which brings me to my question.</p>
<p>I have been reading around on this sub-forum, and many others on this site and I notice, mainly on the "do you think I can get in to (insert university name here)", that the majority of people seem to be enrolled at private high schools where they have the option of taking a full schedule of AP classes and have more EC options than could possibly be taken advantage of. This, I feel, may lead admissions staff to have a bias against the less fortunate students, like myself, that attend small, public high schools with no weighted GPA's, no AP/IB classes, and hardly any EC's.</p>
<p>What I am asking is if you all think that the admissions staff at WUSTL, or any university really, would take in to account the situation of an underprivileged student like I have described?</p>
