I applied to UC Boulder some time ago and recently received a letter that was essentially a deferral. Now I'm afraid that I won't get in because of how low my GPA is. Does anyone have any input?
GPA: 3.2 (I had terrible freshman and sophomore years, but in my junior and senior years I've received 3.6, 3.95, and 3.7 GPAs while taking AP and honors classes)
ECs: Part time jobs during the school year and summer, varsity track and cross country, small amounts of volunteer work, and guitar lessons throughout high school.
Essay: I don't really remember but it should be pretty good.
