    You will probably need to improve your ACT score.

    a 3.55 weighted? you gotta improve that

    If it is hard to improve your GPA and class rank, I suggest you work hard on your ACT. Set a goal of 30 or better. With 2 good essays, you will still get a good chance.

    Yea, right now the thing you can change the most is your ACT. Bring it up like 2 or 3 or more points and you should be in a better light. Good luck!

    wouldn't it be easier to get in the ACES program than all of the others?
    and if i got my act up to a 27 would that be ok for the ACES program?

    people think ACES is so easy to get into. But you still have to be qualified because there are a ton of under-qualified people who apply there hoping to eventualy transfer.

    a 27 act will definitely be better for you and then u can feel more relaxed. but right now since you are a white male and have lower act, u still have a chance but anything can happen. This is just my opinion.
