Should I wait until my fall semester senior grades come out as they will raise my GPA a little bit, or should I just go with EAction and the GPA I currently have, which is 3.6 on 4.0 scale? I have a 2070 on the SAT.

What are my chances of getting in OOS? I'm from SC. I have lots of quality extra-curriculars, but my SAT is only 2110 and my ACT is a 32. I write great essays, though. 3.85 UW GPA, 5.1 W GPA. I am an IB student. I went to 2014 Speech and Debate Nationals (only 2 people in Original Oratory in my state qualify) and i made top 60 in the nation.

I have logged in over 200 hours for my school's drama program. I'm taking the most difficult classes my school has to offer, but I live out of state (Wisconsin). This is my dream school so I'll be applying early. What are my chances?

I was wondering if anyone could help reassure me. Chapel Hill is my dream school and this site says I have an 85% chance, I would just like to know what other people think. I have an 1850 on the SAT, attend the top high school in North Carolina, live in state, have a 25 on the ACT(which will probably not be reported), have made three B's in high school and the rest A's, have taken every AP class my school offers, and have a 3.87 unweighted and 4.33 weighted GPA. I run my own business on Etsy.com, will be receiving my service learning award at graduation, and participate in National Honor Society, Beta Club, Bible Study Club, etc. Help please! Thank you!

I was wondering if anyone had any advice for Out-Of-State students trying to get in. Obviously, with the mandatory 82% in-state law, the acceptance rate is extremely low. For an aspiring student, what are a few things that would improve an out-of-stater's chances at getting in the most? Also, does anyone have the 25%-75% ranges of ACT/SAT scores for accepted out of state students? Thanks!

I just signed up for this because I live in NC and I know that chapel hill is where I want to be. I'm planning on majoring in chemistry with a possible minor in neuroscience and premed prerequisites. I am currently a junior in high school with an unweighted gpa of 3.6, and a weighted of 4.3. I am 24th in my class of 290, I play golf, served a term as sophomore class representative, I'm in FCA, Save club, an Junior Civitans. I volunteer at my local hospital, and I'm actively involved in both my church as well as a local youth group called Young Life. As far as honor societies, I've been inducted into art, English, and math. I've only taken honors and AP courses throughout my high school career, never made a C in my entire 12 years of school, and my senior year I will not be doing early release (if that affects anything). I just took the ACT and scored a 25, but I will be retaking it in the fall to combine scores for a higher super score. I haven't taken the SAT, but I'm taking that in the fall as well. I received a low percentage chance of getting in at Chapel Hill, so I'm kind of nervous and just wanted to get outside opinions on whether or not I could get in? Any advice or answers would be greatly appreciated!

Hi everyone. So I signed up in order to see my chances, and I got a super low percentage. I was hoping if I could another opinion. I applied early action. I'm a senior in a bilingual IB school. I live in San Juan, Puerto Rico. My SAT score is a 1980 (I got a 680 in both Writing and Reading and a 620 in math). My unweighted GPA is a 3.98; weighted, it's 4.21. I'm taking 7 courses this year, 3 of which are AP's. I'm Student Council president, Forensics Speech captain, Oratory (it's like Forensics, but in Spanish) captain, Girl Up club president, NHS member. I'm in Mu Alpha Theta, I played basketball and volleyball in junior high, I was class president from 9th to 11th grade. I'm pretty involved in community service and have had a part time for 2 years (since I was 15). My first language is Spanish, but I'm fluent in English. I also speak French and Portuguese at an intermediate level. I got my DELF certification at the B1 level for French last year. Well, that's all I can really think of. I know they favor in state, but do you guys think my acceptance chances are high? Or should I not even get my hopes up? (I will be asking for financial aid)

Please chance me!! I applied early action, and I'm in state. I have a 4.79 gpa (3.96 unweighted), 2140 SAT, 25/330ish class rank, all 5s on my AP exams (Calc AB, APUSH, and APES last year), I've been dancing for 12 years and it's 10 hours a week, I've been doing marching band for 3 years, and I'm really involved in my church. My concerns are that it's really competitive to get in for the Charlotte area and from my school (4.82 average gpa for acceptance from my school), I have minimal leadership (aside from a liturgical dance group I founded and led), my only community service is through the honor societies at my school (I'm in NHS, French HS, SNHS, History HS, and Mu Alpha Theta), and I don't have an affirmative action advantage. I have a 93% on here, but I'm just so nervous. Any chancing would be greatly appreciated :)

Would anyone mind chancing me? UNC Chapel Hill is my dream school and logging on to this site and seeing that I only have a 6% chance of getting in is very disheartening.

My scores are what kill me. I got a 1730 on the SAT super-scored, how badly do you think this will impact me? I'm also from Georgia and from my understanding NC has a law that delegates they MUST provide at LEAST 82% of their spots for in-state students. Apart from this- I have a 3.75 UW GPA and 4.1 weighted, I will have completed 5 AP classes by the end of this year, I am heavily involved in community service and clubs through my school. I am the secretary of NHS and the vice president of SHS (Spanish Honor Society). I've held a job for about four months and I've not really received any significant awards. However I feel like I've written really great essay / short answer responses for the application. If my scores and my numbers aren't so impressive, can anyone give some advice on how to make myself stand out as someone UNC should accept? I literally do not want to go to any school other than this one.

PLEASE reply.

How come I have really good credentials (my other colleges are military/harder colleges to get into and show me having a 98-100% chance of getting in) and yet UNC shows me as only having a 2% chance. I am very confused.

if you're out of state UNC only provides 18% of their space for out of state. I had a 6% chance, but when I said I lived in NC my chances went up to a 56%

PLEASE chance me. I interned at NASA GSFC and in addition to whats on my profile, One thing that might hurt me a little but not much since it's not STEM related, which is what I'm interested in is that taking the two AP English classes is common in my school but I stuck with honors level which is pretty easy, but not as easy as on-level of course which is a joke. I also haven't won any major math/science awards on the national level like AMC. I am asian (indian) female. I come from a upper middle class family. I took a astronomy course at a local community college (4 credits) and earned an A but it was was easier than my AP sciences courses.

My test scores are on my profile. Btw in case you are wondering what ACES scholar is its something my school made up that basically says I got at least a B in a bunch of science courses. I've never actually gotten a B in any class every grade is an A. Also even though there are a lot of AP scores on my profile, it doesn't mean I actually took those classes. I self studied for AP Bio, USH, and Latin Vergil. The reason why I took both Math 1 and Math 2 tests and my math 1 is slightly lower was because I took the math 1 the summer before 8th grade and I had self studied since I didn't know the material. Again PLEASE chance me I will chance back.

Science/Math classes that I've taken are 8th - Honors Geometry (middle school) 9th - Honors Physics, Honors Algebra 2 (I took algebra 1 in a private school so the credit doesn't show up on my transcripts) 10th - Honors Chemistry, Honors Biology, Honors Precalculus 11th - AP Chemistry (Double period class) AP Calculus BC 12th - Honors Forensic Science (easy but considered honors), Honors anatomy and physiology, AP Environmental Science, AP Stat I hope it won't hurt me that I didn't take Multivariable Calculus even though it is offered.

I'm out of state

It appears to be around 25% to 30% overall.

To check it yourself just go to the scatterplot and add a filter (set in-state status to less than/equal to, enter a value of zero and update the graph).

    Permalink

1 point by James   4 years ago

I think it's your GPA and class rank. I've plotted out the accepted vs rejected students based on their GPA. I've filtered this only to show out-of-state students. As you can see, a 3.6 unweighted GPA at UNC doesn't put you solidly into the accepted category for out-of-state students: college.mychances.net/analy...

Now, 2.2% still seems pretty low. If we narrow this graph down and only look at people near your SAT range, I guess I can start to see why the model is giving you low chances: college.mychances.net/analy...

But still, I think a 2.2% looks pretty harsh. Still, we tend o do a pretty good job of prediction at UNC: college.mychances.net/analy...

Best of luck!

Legally, UNC can only have 18% of its class OOS, and as a result, the OOS acceptance rate ends up at something like 16%, and probably lower for RD alone. I remember in fisk's college guide, it said getting into UNC OOS is harder than getting into duke, thats an exaggeration, but still, gives you an idea of what you're dealing with although the app pool isnt going to be as strong or competitive as other schools w/ such low acceptance rates like uchicago or duke for that matter.

This is the last school I have any hope w/ the waitlist, WashU isnt using theres and UChicago had a big jump in yield so there hardly taking anybody(10-20 ppl out of 2000), UNC takes alot usually off the WL, im just prayin here something works out, having to fill out all these housing papers for where im going right now only makes it more obvious to me how badly i dont want to go there

Try this: go to the scatterplot ("My Analysis"). Then look at "Instate Status". Being from out-of-state seems to be a huge disadvantage here. I would say that the primary things hurting your chances according to our model are your out-of-state status and your class rank.

Where are you from? UNC Chapel Hill (and all other NC schools, for that matter) has to take 80% of its students from in-state, dramatically reducing your chances to get in if you live out of state. On top of that, this is a top ten, bordering Ivy League school, with a rare combination of great location, education, dorms, nightlife, and athletics. Everyone wants to go there, so they get to cherry-pick.

Is UNC really that hard to get into? Coming from Chapel Hill, I've always seen it as sort of a safety, or at least a low target. So really all 3 of you should have no problem getting in... Miniman, that low ACT/SAT might be an issue, but your PSAT and GPA are both really high, and as the CAPTAIN of 3 sports teams, you'll be fine.

I would love to go to UNC too and I have just about the same things you do..gpa, test scores, extracurriculars, and living out of state. From what I have heard i think they only accept 10% out of state making it a lot harder. You may still have a chance but it will be a LOT harder.
