i go to a really nice private college prep school.. i take regular classes, but i have taken 7 classes every semester since freshman year.. i already have 26.5 credits going into my senior year.. my average gpa is a 3.26 right now.. freshman year i had a 3.29 sophomore year i had a 3.38 and junior year i had a 3.08 (due to a lot of family problems...) my sat combined score was a 1630.. i think i did better the next time i took, and i just took the act for the first time.. i want to apply to the university of colorado at boulder.. and i was wondering if anyone thinks i could make it in?

    I'd say you definitely have a shot, especially if you're in state. Out of state might be a bit of a reach though.

    Hey Alexamarie55! Your GPA looks fine. However, I would try to get that SAT score higher. Depending on how you did on the ACT you can send that in instead. CU-Boulder requires you only to send in either the SAT/ACT I believe, so obviously send in the best score, whether it be the ACT or SAT(there are some conversion charts floating around the web, just google them). The CU-Boulder essay prompts will be released later (but I think it will probably be the same essay about talking about diversity and obstacles in your life). The earlier you start on them the better as you will have more time to be into these essays. Also you should join the University of Colorado Admissions page on Facebook. They're really great at answering any questions you have and they get back to you with in a day or so (weekdays only).

    Hope this helped!
