    Yeah! I got in too! I am OOS (Arizona). I am Hispanic so I think that helped make up for my low SAT. Anyway my stats are:
    1300 (650, 650)
    SAT IIs 620, 650, 660 (I don't think I even sent them to UNC though)
    GPA 3.958... UW 4.3214 W
    Rank: 7/464 at the time
    APs 4, 4
    Varsity Men's Volleyball, Lots of other ECs (president of three clubs)
    Good Recs, and good essays (I am not sure actually, I recycled the same essay for UVa, but I had a really good essay for the pop culture question)
