    Hey guys!
    This is my third time (and last time) applying...
    My freshman year I was coming as an international / out of state student so my chances were slim as hell... was declined admission
    My sophomore year (last year) I applied and was waitlisted then declined admission because seats filled up...
    This time applying as a junior and in-state student
    I will have 62 credits including the Spring 2020 semester.
    I am happy with my current university but of course would be happier if I get accepted in UNC.
    Current school: UNC Charlotte
    Major: Chemistry with a minor in criminal justice (may change major to biochemistry later on, still looking at my options...)
    Intended future career: Forensic scientist (chemist or toxicologist to be specific)
    College GPAs: 3.769, 3.812, 3.375 (took a heavy load my last semester and couldn't handle it as well as I thought I could have :neutral: )
    Average GPA: 3.652
    High school WGPA: 4.25 UWGPA: 3.96
    ACT / SAT : Does not matter as I am applying as a junior (was reported as a 20 in my past 2 submissions, it is what I believe was the reason I wasn't being able to get in).
    Only child
    Diversity: American of Syrian and Turkish origins. Born and raised in Saudi Arabia with a bunch of diverse people. I am also a Muslim who wears a scarf.
    Essays:
    1) About me being a third culture child and raised with many diverse people and how it impacted my experiences and how I interact with people.
    2)Volunteer group that I made. I am of Syrian origins so every time I go there I made a group which gather and collect clothes for donations during the war. This helped a lot of people and also influenced a friend of mine to create a volunteer group to create food for the ones in need.

    This is my third time applying, but I have done a lot to improve my stats over the last year in hopes of getting in.


    In state white male, that has attended a in state community college, as well as UNC Charlotte.

    College GPA: 3.8 at UNCC and 4.0 at community college

    Should have about 60 credits transferring

    High School GPA: ~3.85 unweighted, ~4.5 weighted

    Act score- 28( had applied the last two times with a 25 so this is a big jump)

    I have a lot of EC’s(just like everybody else), essays should be really good as I am making sure to have numerous successful English majors read over them. Recommendations should also be strong point.

    Good luck everyone, I know how much getting into UNC means. Hurry up April.

    Male, In-state
    ACT: 35
    Bio SAT: 800
    World History SAT: 800
    Chem SAT: 770
    HS: unweighted GPA +/- 3.25, weighted? 3.9?
    Two APs (school doesn't offer than many)
    Very, very competitive OOS HS
    21 credits since HS graduation, 4 from UNC summer school and 17 at community college with 3.9 GPA (one A- in a 1.0 credit lab, everything else A)

    2 varsity sports, boy scouts (life scout, not eagle), drama club (roles in two plays). No significant activities since HS graduation, but it's only been six months. Currently working a p/t job.

    Took the World History SAT test on a whim just to get another high score, but grades were probably the issue first time around. Can't do anything about the grades except continue to get A's.
