Deferred from UW Madison EA 2024
So last night I found out the I was deferred from UW Madison. I am an OOS (MI) male with a 3.76 UW GPA and a 1300 SAT, and I took 4 AP classes and 3 Honors classes. I applied as a biochemistry major in the college of letters and sciences. For my extracurriculars, I was involved with Varsity Tennis for 4 years and was the senior tennis captain, National Honors Society, National Spanish Honors Society, Rotary Interact (a community service club), DOVES (a club that raises money for daughters of veterans educational support, I have a leadership position in this club), I was also a cashier at Panera bread and worked as a tennis camp instructor. I'm not surprised that I got deferred, considering that my stats are on the low end for out of state applicants. However, what can I do to increase my chances of getting admitted regular decision? I'm on track to earn a 4.0 for my first semester grades of senior year. Do you all think I have a chance of being admitted?62 replies
