Hi! I'm a junior currently (second semester). I was hoping y'all could take a look at my stats and resume and let me know what my chances are of getting into Vandy.
GPA UW: 3.79 (will go up to 3.81 after this semester)
GPA Weighted: 4.42/5.0 or 5.19/6.0
Rank: not in top 10% (school is VERYYYY competitive)
**I took 4 APs my freshman and sophomore years combined and 6 IBs and 1 AP my junior year and will be taking 5 IBs my senior year**
I know my GPA is low for Vandy but I struggled with confidence issues and motivation sophomore year so I got a couple of B's but my grades have gotten way better my junior year.

Vanderbilt is my ABSOLUTE dream school and I know my stats are kind of low but I'm hoping I can get in. Should I apply ED or RD? The only reason I'm iffy about ED is that although Vandy is my dream school, I don't think my parents will pay the tuition (we are out of the income bracket for financial aid, though).
Also, what are my chances at the Chancellor's scholarship?
Thank you so much guys!!
