I'm a white guy from Massachusetts
GPA - 2.66 (I'm hoping to get it up to like 2.8 or 2.9 before I apply this year)
My grades/GPA have improved every year, upward grade trend.
SAT - 1500 out of 2400
Reading: 570, Math: 410, Writing: 520
I haven't taking any AP classes but I take a good amount of Honor classes

105 hours of Community Service, including service work in a third world country.
Winter & Spring track 1-4 and I'll probably be a captain for both this year.
I won't need any finical aid
Both parents are college graduates
I have some learning disability, hence my low SAT Math scores.

Thanks for any responses I get

    If these were better economic times and CU's out of state applications were up instead
    of down 20%, I'd say no-- you wouldn't get in. But in this climate who knows. Perhaps
    a compelling essay about how you've overcome your learning disability might help.

    thanks for the response.

    i realize this school isn't all that realistic, its my top choice though.

    hopefully things work out but if i'm not too optimistic about it.
