My top choices are NYU (Gallatin) and USC (School of Theater the BA program). Can anyone comment on my chances of getting in? (No audition is necessary)
Hispanic Female from Miami, Fl
Neither of Parents went to college
Sister got accepted to NYU but didnt attend
GPA: 4.8 weighted, 3.8 unweighted
Class Rank: 17 out of 1,159 (0vercrowded school)
SAT I: My PSAT was 1180. I took the SATs this month but I'm sure I probably got a score in the 800s (maybe theyll keep in mind that I live in Florida, the state where people dont even know how to vote) Hopefully I'll at least get in the 1100s.
AP's: AP Lang, AP Lit, AP Psychology. All honors academic courses.
(see why I'm worried? too bad things before 9th grade dont count)
I dont know if this counts but-
Honor roll every grading period since freshman year. (i wish middle school stuff counted)
Excelent rating at Solo and Ensemble
Key club Community service award
I got an Excelent at the county science fair in 8th grade, but it was for my physical science class, which was a high school course, i need to ask the admissions office if that counts. I need all the help i can get!!
National Opinion Research Services
University Baptist Church Vocal Team Member
Performing Arts Production
(no leadership positions...understand why I'm worried? This college admissions process is unfair to people who have social anxiety disorder and or are unpopular because we all know that the president of everything is always the most popular kid. Jeez colleges, sorry I'm not fake.)
University Baptist Vocal Team
Miami Christmas Paegent
Vitas Hospice Care
I taught English conversation and did secretarial work in a school in Peru, but my mom owns it , so Iím not sure if it counts.
Senior Year Courses-
AP English Lit
Major: Theater/Performing Arts (if Gallatin)
I dont talk to my teachers so my recomendation probably wont be that good.
*Sigh* I'm starting to doubt whether i can get into FIU.

Wow your school must have serious grade inflation. How can you have a 4.8 weighted and 3.8 unweighted GPA? Thats unheard of....

Not in florida, LOL. Being a floridian myself I have a 4.72w and 3.8uw. But uh.. FIU accepted arguably the worst student in my magnet program already so I think you have a shot

I have no idea, I've taken all honors and 3 APs. The Valadectorian has a 5.8 and a 4.0 unweighted, so I'm really confused.
Honors is 1 extra point
AP is 2 extra points
I'm not asking about my shots at FIU, i hate FIU with a passion, it would be like highschool part 2.
I want to go to a GOOD school. NYU or USC. I said FIU because my stats are so bad i dont think i can even get in there, but FIU is for retards, they accept everyone.

Oh and my school has like every single AP offered on earth except Latin, yet I've only taken 3 APs. How bad will that look?
