What Are My Chances Of Getting Into A School In Boston?

<p>Studying in Boston has aways been a dream of mine. What are my chances of getting into:</p>

<p>University of Massachusetts, Amherst
University of Massachusetts, Lowell
University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth
University of Massachusetts,Boston
University of Suffolk
University of Lesley
Northeastern University
Boston University</p>

<p>GPA 2.87
ENG 24
MAT 27
REA 25
SCI 28</p>

<p>I also have a fairly good college essay as well as a solid letter of recommendation from a good teacher of mine - I did well in his class, -A. In addition to that I have also carried a job for over a year on top of volunteering at my middle school and church.</p>

<p>*I'm also out of state. Which I realize matters, how much though?</p>

<p>What's the probability I get accepted into any of these schools?</p>

<p>I am also an out of state student studying in Boston, MA. But here’s my to cents on the matter: Northeastern is a tough school to get into, what with an influx of students applying and the same goes for Boston University. The other universities like University of MASS shouldn’t be too difficult. I personally did not apply to UMASS, but I have friends who have and gotten in, the same for University of Suffolk. I would give it a try, considering you have a few ECs.
Good Luck!</p>

<p>Northeastern and BU are reaches. UMass is a high match/low reach. I imagine the remaining schools should be matches.</p>

<p>Thanks guys I appreciate it. I realize this is almost completely off the topic of this forum, but how’s dorm life like? And how much can I expect to pay if I intend to study in Boston for 8 years? YouCantSitWithUs I thought you might be able to answer this more in depth since you reside in boston. Thanks again.</p>
