I feel that my GPA (both unweighted and weighted) along with my class rank are going to hinder me a lot in terms of chances for admission to UNC, mainly because I’m from Wake County. And the trend that I’ve seen most of time is people with higher grades/GPA/class rank and slightly lower standardized test scores seem to be accepted more often than those who have it vice versa (from Wake). I’ve noticed this especially in last year’s senior class.
Anyway, do you think UNC would still consider me in spite of not being in the top 10% of my class and having a lower GPA? (I’m in the top 14%, UWGPA: 3.83/4 WGPA: 4.35/5). Or would they immediately deny me because I’m not up to those standards? I know that they use a holistic process and the essays, ECs, and recs matter as well, but I was curious to see what you guys think with respect to GPA/class rank/SAT
