    Ouch- grades and test scores. AP exam scores mean something- 4's and 5's I would hope. Siblings can vary vastly in academic talent. EC's do not trump academic credentials. You need to be able to do the UW work- not sure your credentials show that.

    Minnesota is ever more competitive. May depend on what school/district you're coming from but I know people from MN with considerably higher stats that were not admitted the past couple years. Good luck!

    I agree that I would not view Wis as a safety school and might not be shocked if you didnt get in.

    I know kids with significantly higher GPAs, scores and EC's who got denied or deferred.

    It would be tough for someone instate to get in with those stats, so it'll be difficult, but not impossible.
