Alright, guys. The tuition is not a problem so please do not mention tuition in regards to these schools. I want to get into schools like Fordham, Lehigh, Holy Cross, Lafayette, UC Santa Cruz, OSU, Purdue, and UMiami. However, my freshman and sophomore years were a bit rough since I earned two Cs (74 in English honors and a 71 in algebra). Along with one D, a 68, in chemistry. I also got kicked out of English honors due to the low grade of a 74, and my overall cumulative GPA weighted is a 3.1.
Junior year, I am taking AP CS Principles and AP Environmental Science and am hoping to aim for at least a 28 ACT score. Is this courseload not rigorous enough for these schools? Especially since I am trying to make up for poor grades? The rest of my grades are mostly Bs with about 4-5 As in total from sophomore and freshman year. I also earned nothing less than 85 in classes not related to math, English, or chemistry.
I also have good extracurriculars which are mostly community service and clubs. I also play the piano and stand up bass. Is there no hope for me left even if I raise my GPA to a 3.4? My major would be classics and foreign language.
