By UNC yall on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 01:48 am: Edit

3.7 HS GPA--homeschool and private school
3.4 first semester college GPA at UNCCharlotte
1360 SAT (780 math score)
4 years basketball
1 year cross-country
2 years AAU club basketball

What do you think my chances are?

By Reality! on Sunday, December 15, 2002 - 02:02 am: Edit

Chance: not good

Why?
Low SAT I
Did not take the SAT II or AP exam
No community service
No leadership position
No co-cirricular activities (excluding sports)

Instead, apply to a local Community College and work harder!

Just to see what ya'll would say :).

But seriously, what do ya'll think of my chances now?

HONEST?

NOPE: if you wanted a fair analysis, you should have written all that extra crap you did in the first place. Why did you only mention “4 years basketball, 1 year cross-country, [and] 2 years AAU club basketball” originally and omit everything else? Was this because those were the *only* things you truly did, and wanted to make up •••• to improve your odds? However, *if* you did all that crap, then you chances improve by 30%. If you raise your SAT score, take a few SAT II exams, and enroll in some AP courses, and take the respective exams, then your chance will obviously be in your favor.

Note: if you were sick for the SAT II and did not do your best, then why did you not take it again? The SAT II is offered about SIX times a year!

Remember: honesty

I am being honest!
