Just curious to know if I even stand a chance at attending NYU or University of Michigan. I live in Washington, so University of Washington is probably the one I will end up at (but don't get me wrong, I really do like UW and it is my first choice.).
So yeah, it'd be awesome if I can get input on this. Thanks in advance if you do!
GPA: 3.69 unweighted.
[NOTE: This was due to an attendance problem . Because of lack of communication between the school and my house over the summer (I was gone to the learning center often, and everyone else was in Korea then), I couldn't do the reinstatement project and eventually failed one class. I explained to them that I would make it up in Spring when I take an online course...but yeah, it shows up as an F on the transcript. I had 10 1/3 absences (mainly due to tardies, because my brother wouldn't wake up early enough and he didn't take the punishment because his first period class was up the hill and didn't have bells). If I had kept the A-, it would be 3.85...but they wouldn't care anyways. This is the reason why I'm feeling so unsure about getting in UW]
