    your SAT score isn't stellar for UM, but your AP scores might tip the scale a bit. You definitely have a decent chance but it's no guarantee. Get good letters, retake the SAT, and definitely have some backup schools. UM is not an automatic admission for anyone these days.

    For the Class of 2022, the in-state acceptance rate was 41%. I think you have a very good chance. But, if it were my kid, I have him or her take the SAT again and try to raise the score into the 1,400's. uwGPA and rigor are the two most important factors according to the CDS and you have that "in spades."

    I wanted to add that I noted a few in-state LSA applicants who were accepted with ACT scores as low as 28 and SAT scores of 1,360-1,370 here on CC. But I'd consider those more exceptions than the rule.

    Thanks for such quick responses guys! I am definitely shooting to break 1400 on the August SAT. I have finally enlisted in an SAT Tutor and have been scoring around 1450s so hopefully I can do it on my last attempt. Would a 1390 be a dealbreaker for me as an applicant?

    No, I don't think the 1,390 would be a "dealbreaker." But I'd feel warmer and fuzzier with a 1,450 +/-. Being first gen REALLY helps too.

    1390 is not a dealbreaker for sure, but even just a few tutoring sessions will likely bring you up over 1400 anyway. It's a good investment.

    You have to improve that SAT math score. Not hard to do. Maybe you need a little coaching or maybe you figure it out on your own. 750 is gettable.

    Your GPA and your AP scores speak volumes. As stated If you get the Sat up then if course your chances are improved but you already knew that. I agree with raising the math score. Do your best and report back
