Wake seems to me to be the perfect school: just the right size, excellent academic reputation, wonderful philosophy. Now, what are my chances of getting in?

GPA:3.6 (could be better, not in top 10%)
Curriculum: most rigorous courses possible (example: this year, 5 APs and one gifted)
SAT: 1350 (670 math 680 verbal)
EC: average club involvement, strong volunteer opportunities, avid equestrienne (20+ hours per week, steady jobs for 4 years

What do you think? Do I have a shot? I'm concerned about my GPA and class percentile.

I'm very curious to hear what others think about your chances as I have very similiar stats as you. I posted a similar thread and I only got one response saying that I had a pretty good shot at getting in. Did you apply early decsion?

No, even though Wake is my top choice I decided I would rather do regular decision and keep all my options open. Did you apply early decision?

Yea I did. I hear many people hear they want to keep their options open, but I knew if I got accepted at Wake I would go there. So it made sense to apply Early Decsion.

Hey, check your mail, I have some other questions and am thinking it will be better not to waste space in this forum.
