Where can I get in with a 3.6 gpa?

<p>I am from a wealthy high school with a lot of smart kids with high gpas. I have a 3.6 weighted gpa out of a possible 5.0...I got a 29 on the ACTs. Extracurriculars are all good.
So far I have been accepted to Penn State main campus but have been deferred from Elon,Tulane and Emory...I need help knowing which schools I can get into that are still top notch?</p>

<p>I got into Northeastern with the same ACT score but a better GPA. Also got into Umass Amherst and UM: Twin Cities.</p>

<p>top notch... that depends on your major.</p>

<p>Very true. So that raises a whole different question. What is your major?</p>

<p>WOW- top notch is a pretty subjective term. My son got into Elon and Emory with a lower GPA and ACT but rejected from Tulane. He did not choose either of those two schools, and was accepted into a lot of schools. Your deferrals do not mean rejections-just make sure you keep your grades up, send in more accomplishments and perhaps another recommendation. Show your interest and you should be able to turn those deferrals into acceptances. They just want to see the rest of the application pool. It makes no sense for them to accept you early action when you may not be a tippy top candidate and you are not obligated to accept their offer of admission.</p>

<p>What do you want to study? Maybe Occidental, Hofstra, William & Mary...</p>

<p>University of Washington Seattle
Purdue
Pitt</p>

<p>Your ACT and gpa would be great for any Florida school (UF is great, FSU). Also University of Miami would be a good chance.
