I'm considering applying to U Miami since I am in-state and could probably live at home. As my name suggests, I'd rather be at NYU but there is always law/grad school.
My only concern is that my HS record is a bit sketchy. For the first three years I slacked off, but in the last year I almost had straight As. I finished with a 2.5 UW, 3.7 W taking pretty much all of the AP courses I could (save for Calc, Bio, etc.). My current college GPA is a 3.6 with 11 credits, and I'll be taking 15 this spring. I know I have less than 30 so I will submit my ACT (which was a 26, not super scored; do they do that?) score and HS transcripts.
So what are my chances for the Fall '11 semester? I looked up some old threads with people having ~3.4 getting in, but I know its become a bit more selective lately. ECs include a work/study and the school newspaper. I made the dean's list this semester, too. I probably won't get a scholarship, though I will probably have more than a 3.75 (the cut-off) by the end of spring, but with whatever FA they give me + living at home the loans won't be too crippling (...right?)
