Asian Male, from California.
GPA: 3.6 UW, 3.7 W
- The reason for this is because the amount of courses I took throughout my three years thus far diluted the effect of any AP classes. Also, my High School doesn't count College Classes as Honors points, neither does it count Honors points. Boy, do we suck.
SAT II: Scores come sometime this week, but from the CC threads, I reckon around 700 across the board.
- SAT IIs taken: US History, World, and Writing.
- Will take: Mathematics IC, and two others in November.
Class Rank: Top 5%
Likely Major: Political Science, International Politics/Relations
English - Honors/AP
Mathematics - Pre-calculus/AP Statistics
Sciences - AP Environmental/CP Bio/Chem, maybe physics?
Foreign Language - Korean
History - (strongest emphasis) 8 yrs worth
- College Prep, World History
- College Course, US History
- College Course, Political Science
- College Course, Western Civilization
- College Course, Psychology
- College Course, Microeconomics
- AP Course, US History (Next year)
- AP Course, Gov't/Macroeconomics (Next year)
(Each course is worth 10 credits = 1 yr. All A's).
Strongest academic focus: Social Sciences/Political Studies
Weakest academic focus: Natural Sciences/Mathematics

- Also placed as All-City Adjutant, 3rd place out of over 3,500 cadets in the ROTC program.

If all you say goes as planned I think you will get in, just apply early (before January) or it doesn't matter how good your stats are.

January is late. Apply in September. Seriously.

I don't think anyone's GPA rises during their senior year.

Seriously? Mine got better every year (from making 3.5's to 4.0's) and I went from ranking in 20s to 6 outta 300.

Yes, UMich has rolling admissions, apply in September. The OP has very good ECs and pretty good stats. But applying early gives people an edge.

|By Achat (Achat) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 11:43 am: Edit|
As soon as the forms are out. I think late September.

nice im gonna finsih my app the day it comes out
lol and send it in

Be thoughtful in your responses. U Mich takes a close look at the application too these days. Lots of essays and a personal statement. The strength of your application will have an impact in the admission decision if you are borderline for out-of-state applicants and also in decisions such as being in the Honors program.

would i have a shot with a 1280-1300 and 88 uw average in all honors and aps ranked in the 1st or 2nd decile in my school the highest average being a 92 with good ecs applying from NJ
|By Achat (Achat) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 02:47 pm: Edit|
Does not hurt to try. If your gpa is 88 and 92 is highest, I would say you are in top decile rather than the second decile.
|By Achat (Achat) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 02:49 pm: Edit|
Scratch that. I have no idea what your decile would be. I just made a very illogical statement!
It wouldn't hurt to ask your counsellor what it is, since he might put that in recommendations he sends too.
|By Hollaratme (Hollaratme) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 03:25 pm: Edit|
yeah she said they dont do it till next fall
do i stand a chance
|By Achat (Achat) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 03:48 pm: Edit|
I think so.
I used to say before to get >1400 SATs for out of state and many people disproved that. Unfortunately, you are asking this question in summer when most people are away and not attending to these boards..would someone else speak up?
|By A2a2 (A2a2) on Wednesday, June 16, 2004 - 11:51 pm: Edit|
I don't know what your 88 works out to on a 4 point scale, but it used to be that Michigan would look for 3.8 or above from out-of-state. Engineering is more difficult. However, Michigan's application process is all new this year - and I don't think anyone can say with certainty what works anymore. Next year will be interesting too - because the University's yield rate was higher than expected, and the first-year class is going to be huge. Next year, they may decide to cut back.
|By Hollaratme (Hollaratme) on Thursday, June 17, 2004 - 12:10 am: Edit|
