    Your gpa is relatively poor combined with average SAT scores. EC's never trump the grades and tewst scores- it looks like you should have paid more atttention to academics. You may have a chance but be sure to have safeties other than UW and UNC.

    Yah. i don't have a good GPA in 9th(3.0) and 10th grade, even though i got 1 B and all A's in 11th. still very hard to pull it up

    Aha!- improvement means a lot. They may just look at your junior year gpa and count that. However you still have middle of the road test scores. Apply but have safeties.
