Other information: I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Panic Disorder, and receive special accommodations which I rarely use (not sure how to express that in applications). Does have an effect on my school work, but for the most part I’ve been able to work through it. Freshman year, the year I was diagnosed with Panic Disorder, was especially hard. Some/most essays will deal with this.

I attended pre-college at Carnegie Mellon University the summer before my junior year.


Thanks.

    a 3.84 GPA is good, what are you talking about?

    I would submit the ACT over the SAT, and I would say you have a pretty good shot.

    Just make sure to show some interest in those ECs too

    wow all those honors and AP classes and it looks like they're barely weighted. i guess that sucks. i think you have a decent shot. course load, GPA, and ECs are not. just do well on the SAT or ACT again.

    Honors isn't weighted at all, and all we get is a 1.1 multiplier for each AP.
