I'm still waiting back from UMASS Amherst. It's the school I want to go to. Most of my friends heard back around March tenth, and I was wondering what my odds are of getting in, and how late they send out their letters. any help would be greatly appreciated
ok so for my stats...
I go to a small private high school, whose academics are more rigorous than most public highschools. Ive had an up and down trend
my freshman avg: 89.7
junior: low, around a 70
I calculated my gpa out a couple months back and it came out to around a 2.7
I had a tough slump my junior year, but recovered from it, and thats what my essay is about (and its a pretty damn good essay if I do say so myself)
also, my strong point are my sats (710 Verbal, 620 Math for 1330)
I've read about the sliding scale and it says with a 2.7 gpa you should have an sat score of 950 minimum. im not sure if thats outdated or not.
I was class president my sophomore year, and have been in a leading role for the last three plays at my school, did jv tennis for three years, switched to crew this year.
