    "Chances for UNC """Medicine"""" !?!?!?!?

    I'll just assume you didn't mean medicine, and just meant UNC...LOL.

    UNC OOS, is extremely competitive.

    You have a stellar Class Rank and awesome ECs. However, you REALLY need to brush up your GPA (and it's ok to have a few Bs in AP and honors classes). A 2000-2100 SAT would fare well for instate but for OOS you need to bring that up too...I don't know anything 'bout U Wash. or U. Flor...

    Good Luck..!

    you're fine for UW..in fact you might be able to apply for their honors program because of your difficult curriculum.

    Tartheheel, if his rank places him in the top 10 students in his class, then his GPA is fine. What needs work is his SAT score.
