chances @ UW?

Hi I'm an OOS student who's interested in going to UW and I'd really love an opinion on my chance of getting in!

Ethnicity: Hispanic
My UW gpa: 3.65
My W gpa; 3.82

My lowest grade was a C+ that I got junior year in Pre-Calc Honors

Total honors courses: 3
Total completed AP courses: AP Spanish(5), and I'm currently taking 4 AP classes as a senior(AP Calc AB, AP Psych, AP Lang. & AP Gov)

I received a 1250 on the new SAT

I have a total of 138 community service hours, I've been a member/VP of Latino Club for 2 years, I've also been on Cross Country for 4 years, softball 1 year

I wrote a strong essay so I'm hoping that'll make up for my gpa but at the same time I'm nervous that everything won't be good enough since I'm OOS. Praying I'll get in!

    I definitely think you have a strong chance of getting in.

    -For GPA your a tad below average, but nothing to concerning at all considering your course load.

    -Your SAT is above average.

    -The C+ could hurt you a little bit.

    However, considering you're hispanic you have a solid chance.

    Good luck!
