    Did you apply yet? I'd say you have a pretty good chance. My stats were lower than yours and I was accepted earlier this week.
    But take what I say with a grain of salt, chance threads mean nothing. ;)

    Ya I applied last weekend. Is it rolling admissions? How long did you have to wait for a reply?
  • sophistrysophistry Registered User Posts: 913 Junior Member
    Oh, good, you already applied. Yeah, it's rolling admissions. On the 10th I received an email from them saying I should get a response in 4 - 6 weeks, but then I got accepted on the 15th. :p Did you get an email from them?

    i got the same 4-6 email on the 11th and I found out the next morning =p. I think you have a good chance, test scores are well above average
  • WilkeyWilkey Registered User Posts: 165 Junior Member
    I never even got an email, I just kept checking the status and I eventually saw it said University Accepted. And I had the same GPA as you, a tougher rigor, and a SAT 200 points lower and I got a scholarship. I think youll be fine
  • SMBeymanSMBeyman Registered User Posts: 12 New Member
    I just sent in my application and scores but I don't think my school has sent in my transcript, secondary school reports, or recommendations yet. Will I get the email once all of these things are in?
  • interludesinterludes Registered User Posts: 54 Junior Member
    You might not even get the email. I never got one but I kept checking my online application status frequently, so I would do that if I were you once they get your transcripts and stuff, just in case. I would think you're definitely getting in though. Good luck!
