Here is my story... I am not good at tests, and I ended up with a poor ACT score during my third year in high school, and I have not taken any AP courses, no matter how much I begged my mom, she wouldn't let me take them. It has been a goal in my life to study abroad, and since I have been out of high school for a year, and I have a year of University under my belt, I feel like this could be my chance.
Throughout high school, I have gained experience and qualifications, I graduated at the top 25% of my class, and with a 3.3 GPA. I honestly don't know if this is even good enough. I am aware Universities are competitive, and if they even saw my application, I don't doubt at all that they would laugh and question why a dumb girl is applying somewhere far.
I am in the process of applying now, but I still wonder if I am just wasting my time, and the Universities time by applying... Can anyone tell me exactly what I should do? Should I continue with the process, or should I forget all about it?
