Sorry to bug you guys. Well I really want to attend this school. It would be so awesome. My gpa is a 3.5. I got an ok sat score (2270). I took the math 2 and physics subject test. I got a 790 for math and got an 800 for physics. I self studied for physics B and getting 4s and 5s on various practice exams like Barrons and college board so I think I'm going to get a 4 on the exam but I'll study twice as hard . I get 5s on college board practice tests for AP English and my teacher says not to stress. I didnt take the computer science exam though because my teacher said I shouldn't because he didn't want me to skip anything important. I got a 4 on his practice test. I'm in FRC. I'm also a stand up comedian and preform at various clubs in LA. But I'm nervous because I got a C in semester 1 honors physics due to family circumstances (my father left me and my mom lost her job). I think I have a pretty decent life story to tell. I didn't attend school for 3 years in my elementary years and caught up within two years through homeschool. Had many misadventures like being a transfer student in Guatemala. It was then that I loved to learn. I'm kinda the head of the household when life changed. I get paid for doing various routines and help my mom bring food to the table. I go to a nationally recognized school. I'm Hispanic and female. I've been thinking about majoring in computer science, computer engineering, or electrical engineering. Or even in math. I want to be a video game programmer when I grow up. I'm going to take 3 AP classes as a senior. AP gov/econ (taking both macro and micro economics), AP calculus BC, AP statistics. Duel rolling with my community college by taking an assembly language class. Overall I get As and Bs. I forgot to mention that I had an internship at Cal Tech for the bioengineering department. My brother and sister are 100% committed to hockey so if I get accepted then I'd like to relocate my family there so they can pursue their passion in the sport. Also theres good high schools in Minnesota so I'd like to enroll them there. Even they want to come with me. So will I be ok?
You should get into one of the colleges at the U of M. However, your chances of getting into the college of science & engineering are borderline. Last year the AVERAGES for CSE admits were ACT 30.6 (your score is ok), class rank top 10% (your rank is a problem). Note: some students start in CLA (easier to get into) and transfer to CSE or CBS after Freshman year. The U of M will automatically consider you for other colleges if they don't admit you to CSE.
My school doesn't let me know what class rank I have so I'm being fair by putting top 50%. But yeah you're right. I'll try anyway when the time rolls around. And who knows maybe I can boost my gpa a little. Maybe to a 3.6 or 3.7 maybe?
I have a 3.83 GPA and a 28 ACT applying to the college of Sciences .... I applied in late September and haven't heard anything back. Do you think I have a shot, or do you think I should change to the college of liberal arts?
Were you accepted? I'm just curious because I have almost exactly the same scores.
You have a very good shot! Don't change! Just be patient!
3.7 GPA and 27 ACT applying to the college of liberal arts... Do I have a good shot?
I applied in late September but still haven't heard back. Is this a bad sign?
You should get in with yur GPA and ACT score. Priority application deadline was 12/15 so many notifications do not go out until sometime in January. However, it is possible your application was misplaced or is incomplete (such as ACT score not received).
I would suggest you contact the admisions office just to confirm they have your application and nothing is missing.
Just got accepted on Saturday! Thanks! :)
I sent my application in during September. Does anyone know how long it takes for an admission decision to be sent in?
I was told by an admissions counselor decisions start going out in November and finish in February.
I sent mine in September and got accepted the 26th.
I would suggest you call the admissions office. Tell them you want to confirm they have your application and ask if they can check to make sure nothing is missing.
After they confirm you can ask when you should expect to hear something.
Better safe than sorry.
25 on my ACT, 3.3 GPA. Do I really have a 79% chance of getting in like this says??
I got a 26 on my act and have a 3.6 gpa. I volunteered alot but got waitlisted. Still haven't gotten in. So I probably got rejected.
It really depends on which college you applied to...one of the faults of this site.
I have a ACT of 22 and a GPA of 3.3 as well. I also have a 60% chance, so yes, I would think the numbers are correct :) good luck
If I got into this school is that a good induction I will get into University of wisconsin-Madison?
No - but admission to U of MN-TC is probably a good indicator for U of IL-UC.
Admission to UW Madison and U of Mich are more difficult than U of MN-TC. I wuld estimate your chances at U Mich and UW Madison at 50%.
Uw-madison is a more competitive university compared to uw-milwaukee though, and uw-Madison needs more requirements. Who knows, it all depends on your record but not on your admission of a certain university/college
28 on my ACT Advanced science and engineering courses taken. I have an internship in the engineering field and lots of volunteer work and a 3.4 gpa what are my chances?
What college are you applying to?
23 on my ACT, 3.6 GPA, AP courses taken, 2 year Youth Apprentice Banking & Finance Student, and participated in PLTW. What are my chances..? :S
3.4 GPA, PSEO student, volunteer at Mayo Clinc and Ronald McDonald House, but a 20 on my ACT. Will I get in?
I got into st Thomas, Duluth, Iowa state, university of Iowa, and am still waiting to hear from hamline and UMN. I did full time PSEO my junior year and this year. I have a 3.5 but only got a 21 on the ACT. You will be just fine when it comes to college apps.
28 ACT, 3.85 GPA. Will I get in?
You should get into the college of science and engineering (CSE) at the U of M. The average ACT score for the 2012 Freshman class was 30.5. Overall, I'd estimate your chances at 80% for both U of Minn and U of Mich.
i loveeee Minnesota :))) i would definitely go here if I still lived in MN
