    You still don't have too much to worry about...your SAT scores are great and they will probably help quite a bit..the only prob I see is your GPA b/c UM's uses weighted GPA, with their average being a 4.1

    I wouldnt stress over this too much...UM is probably a match for you (50/50 chances), tho not a safety...just make sure that you have applied to other colleges that you consider matches and safeties...Good luck!

    I think that you will be admitted,but you won't get a lot of merit money.

    I think it's a good match for you, but as for scholarships, only a 1/4 tuition possible.

    thankfully i wasnt banking on any money at all..possible need based but not much

    You'll get in for sure. I had worse stats and got in. I didn't apply for fin. aid though and I think that made a diff.
