Hello I was wondering what the chances are of me receiving a merit based scholarship as a freshman for UMD with an intended major in mathematics and/or computer science with my current stats:
SAT I: 2110 (690 Reading, 800 Math, 620 Writing)
GPA: 3.75(U), 4.33(W)
5 or 6 AP's and probably will take Calculus III at local college over the summer.
EC's: Varsity Cross Country/Track (3 years/Captain 1 year), some job experience at a construction company over 2 summers, decent volunteer work.
This is the only EC's I can think of. How do other people have so much? I can barely fit in anything else with Cross Country/Track every day.
And finally, is it worth taking the SAT again to improve my chances a little? (maybe a 10-20 increase in Reading and 70-90 in Writing). What else can I do to improve my chances at a scholarship? (EC's, awards, essay, etc.)
