**ty essay I guess.
Where else were you accepted/deferred/rejected: IDK</p>

<p>Colleges use the UW GPA in their Common Data Set info. Your GPA falls in the bottom 15%. <a href="http://www.villanova.edu/enroll/assets/documents/CDS_2011-2012.pdf%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.villanova.edu/enroll/assets/documents/CDS_2011-2012.pdf&lt;/a> IMO that's why you were deferred. Maybe consider Holy Cross or Fordham?</p>

<p>Thanks for answering, I can definitely see why now. Its a bit misleading to post just weighted gpa stats on villanova's site. As I am applying for VSB it should also be a bit harder than VSB's other programs other than engineering I guess. </p>

<p>I guess I am a bit bitter considering that I am on a high trend and have been taking very difficult classes. </p>

<p>I feel that my stats + criteria severely limits my choices.</p>

<p>Boston U, U of Vermont, U of New Hampshire, UMass.</p>

<p>How is your unweighed GPA in 10th and 11th grade?</p>
