I am ASB president to a school of 1300+, ASB treasurer last year, captain of the schools science bowl team the last 2 years, plenty of school awards for academic excellence in science, 4 years cross country, 1 baseball, 2 golf, 150+ hours of community service, 8 AP classes, took 3 last year and passed all the tests, 2 3's and a 4, taking the rest senior year, 1 running start class, 1800 SAT's first time without studying, the only major problem is a have a 2.85 GPA. i've taken all honors classes, but just slacked off freshman and sophomore years, i got a 3.5 both semesters of junior year, while taking 3 AP classes. i really want to go to UW, but i'm afraid that they'll just overlook me because of my cummulative GPA. If i could have your input of what you think my chances are, that would be great!

    extracurriculars= realllllllly good
    gpa= obviously not
    classes= pretty good
    sat= UW average I think

    Im no college con expert, but I think you have a more then 50% chance of getting in cause of your class' rigor and extracurriculars. but you never know, UW is unpredictable, sometimes admitting people with your GPA but way lower extracurrics and sometime denying people with good everything. i think you have a good shot though
