Your GPA is not terribly low for the schools in contention, considering your respectable rank. It's tough to say, obviously, but you have as good a shot as anyone.

In my opinion, you will definitely be accepted to your safeties and Lehigh (which I would list as a safety for you),UMich, and NYU

The rest are tough to predict but you have a good shot

Are you instate for UVa - if not I do not think it is a "match" for you, but you still have a good shot

is UVA hard to get into? i never imagined it being a reach.

anyway, is there anything i could to improve my chances
