I got a 12 on the act and my gpa is a 4.0 will i get accepted.... we will see
Seventh semester grades are not required unless prompted, correct?
Oops sorry not 3.6, 3.7.
Can someone chance me? I am a junior and have a 3.6 and a 23 on my first ACT (I plan to retake until I get at least a 26)... I have AP English and APUSH. I'm the vice president of the Interact Club at my school, work two jobs year round, am on the dance team, and also do competitive dance. Also, my senior year I will be going on a student exchange to France through Rotary (I've had 4 years of French language). I don't know why, but I'm so worried! Help would be appreciated.
I applied to MSU and got a letter back saying that I need to send in my 7th semester grades, retake the ACT, and apply for CAAP, if I do all of this, will I be accepted?
I got deferred and I have a 3.3 GPA with a 24 ACT. One year foreign language, but two AP classes in High School. I have been a part of DECA, have volunteer work, and have also had a few jobs since 16. What do you think my chances are of getting in this time around? Has anyone got accepted thus yet with something similar to these figures?
just got accepted after defer
Hi, I was deferred from MSU, and I was wondering if anyone knew how many chances are after I send in my semester 7 grades. My grades are: B AP Physics, B Adv. Earth & Space, B+ AP Calc BC, A AP Language, A Student Leadership. This cummulates to a 4.2667, but I know they recalculate your GPA. I would appreciate the help.
What was your cumulative GPA (without this year)?
has anyone heard from the academic scholars program? i was a really early applicant and i fit all the requirements but no word. ??
alternatively, anyone have any insight on the essay to apply for honors college?
Accepted with a 3.5 GPA and a 1660 SAT
Can anyone chance me? Junior with a 3.9 and got a 26 on my first act in october. Am retaking it in february and march. I am in 1 honors class and have 2 ap and will have taken 4-6 college classes by the time i graduate. I am in the top 10% i have two sports and a few extra curriculars and volunteering and i have tutored. I am also a legacy
sounds like you have a really good shot honestly. imo, you'll probably get in.
i applied only about 2-3 weeks ago and i already heard back from them
Did it say that you were accepted on the online application check system, or did you just get a letter in the mail?
Did you get in and what did you test scores and grades look like?
it took me 12 weeks to hear back from MSU
Deferred with a 3.4 gpa and a 1980 SAT.
how do you send your 7th semester?
I got in with a 3.2 and 20 on the ACT
That would not happen, you must have gotten a scholarship to play a varsity sport, or you have some type of royalty in your family.
Nope. I play no sports, and I'm pretty sure I have no royalty in my family. Maybe its because of the affirmative action policy or something.
MSU has not received my transcript yet, I sent it in about 5days ago? Does anyone know why this is?
Got accepted here =) First college acceptance and they called me to give me the news!
i have a 2.7 GPA (unweighted) and a 24 ACT. I also take lots of Honors and AP classes, plus extracurricular activities. Do i have a good chance??
Keep in mind that MSU is not an easy school. With a 2.7 gpa you need to seriously evaluate whether you could amp up your study habits enough to succeed there. Good luck.
3.12 GPA, 24 on my ACT. Do I even have a chance of getting in?? I feel like neither of those are very good compared to a lot of other people's. Please help!
I got in with a 3.19 and 24... It might depend on your essay and ec activities because my friend had better grades and a 26 on the ACT, and her acceptance is contingent on CAAP classes (remedial classes I believe)
its for students who are either: a minority, financial need, and hasnt had the privledge to display tgeir full potential. they have special classes for disability.
I got in with 3.2 1750 sat, which is a 25 act but 10 points away from 26
Just Got Accepted!!
i'm a bit confused about the high school form on the application. if we're using this website to send transcripts, we don't need to send this to our counselor, right? i just want to double check.
They want to see my 7th semester grades, is this a good or bad sign? My grades are
IB Business 1 A
AP Statistics C
AP Enviornmental Science B
Co-op work experience A
Does this help me or hurt me if my grades remain the same until the end of the semester when I send them in? Replies would be helpful.
If they want to see your grades it probably means they're a little on the fence about you. They want to see that you aren't just blowing off the semester. You should be fine as long as you don't fail any of the classes you are currently taking.
Out of state student attending the #2 high school in his state with a 3.3 unweighted gpa and a 3.95 weighted gpa, but my gpa has been negatively affected by various personal cricumstances. I got a 1650 on my last SAT and played 3 years of football and 4 years of baseball (presumptive captain). I am currently taking AP Psychology and Honors Spanish IV. Do I have a fair chance?
I am so scared of this entire thing. If someone could help me through this and help me find out where everything is I can make my way from there. I hate being lost because then i dont know where im going or what I am suppose to be doing. If given the chance, I will proove i can do this but i need that chance.
I have a 3.35 unweighted, 3.47 weighted as well as a 25 on my ACT. It would be much appreciated if someone could chance me! Thanks.
Should get in I got in with similar stats
you've got pretty good chances. if i were you i wouldn't worry too much. good luck though!
How long does it typically take for them to receive ACT scores? I sent mine a couple of weeks ago and they say they've received everything else.
if you send it through the internet on your transcript about 2 weeks, if you have your school send them through the mail it could be quite a while depending on how far your college is.
I'm Marching Band Saxophone sectional leader at WLN. I play oboe, baritone, and all the saxophones. I'm graduating early with a 3.24 GPA and a 24 on the ACT. I also was in the Walled Lake Water Polo team for two years. I participated in the Book Club and Solo and Ensemble.
I have a 3.31 overall gpa and I received a 21 on the ACT but I just took it again this past Saturday. I am also a member of the pep club at my school, National Honor Society, National Society of High School Scholars, I am an executive member of the Big Brother Big Sister organization at my school, and I am a student aide in the Guidance and Counseling Suite at my school. I have also performed countless hour community service and participated in programs sponsored by the university. Does anyone have an idea of what my chances would be?
I also participated on the Girl's Varsity Outdoor Track and Field team for two years and I am a first generation college student. Will either of these increase my chances?
Both will definitely increase your chances. Especially being a first generation college student, thats HUGE. I'd say you have a good chance of getting in.
Okay here we go, I have a 3.3681 GPA from one of the top high schools in Michigan. I got a 26 on my ACT. My essay was graded by my English teacher and she gave it a 100%, I've played football and baseball the last 4 years and JV basketball one year. I'm also involved in Peer Mediation at my school, as well as involved with some community services. I don't know why, but I'm worried, any comments please :(
What high school did you go to? I woulnd't worry. As long as you have good extracirriculars and have a good personal statement, I wouldn't get too uneasy.
Does MSU have an application tracking number?
Yes they do. Your tracking number is usually the applicant ID number. After you complete your application, you can log on at any time to see if your status has been updated.
30 on the ACT, 3.81 GPA, but I don't really have many extra curriculars. still good chances??
Absolutely! Are you applying to the honors college?
There's a possibility, but they take extra curricular activies very seriously. It's one thing to be smart, but you also have to be able to interact with your peers. Especially if there are 65,000 students on Michigan State's campus. Your grades are awesome though, I'm trying to get into state also. I wish you the best!!!
just got accepted 3.2 gpa and 1750 sat
How long did it take for them to respond?
edit: got accepted after 4 weeks
I applied early action, it was due oct 7. It took about 2-3 weeks
Help me here what does a 1750 equate to for an ACT Score?
It would be a 25.
when did you apply?
I have a 3.35 GPA and I received a 23 on my act, but I am re-taking it and plan to get a 25 or higher! I'm really involved in my school with clubs and i have been number one singles on the girls varsity tennis team...good chances?
How long does it take for your transcripts to be sent from here? I sent them to all my schools last night. And does anyone know how long for your ACT score to be recieved electronically(school recieving it)?
I got a 22 on my Act and I have a 3.6 GPA I am National Honor Society and am taking AP Calculus and U.S History. I am also on the varsity tennis team, do you think I have a good chance?
im also in the drama program, and was on yearbook.
MSU recalculates your GPA and will take out yearbook. They like a strong schedule, and that includes your senior schedule. They like AP classes and not too many extracurricular classes that are pointless.
My senior schedule includes 2 AP classes, Psycology, Sociology, and Personal Finance.
When should I expect to hear back from MSU? According to this site I have an extremely good chance for admission, and I hear that MSU accepts good students early. When can I expect to hear back?
2-4 weeks, I also applied. How long does it take for parchment to send transcripts to schools. Hw do I know if they were recieved?
Not long, most of the time under a week. You will receive an email telling you they sent it, and that they should be receiving it within a few days.
please chance me, i have a 3.5 GPA with a 22 act. I will be retaking the ACT and expect to get a 25-26. I am in four different clubs and will be the first in my family to attend college. I immigrated from an Indian at the age of 9, and had no knowledge on how to speak English. I worked myself through the hardships and now i am taking 2 IB and one AP class. i am also on varsity basketball and track. And i work year around. I am currently working on putting together a good essay. Any ideas on my chances?
You have a really good chance!
I have a 3.3 gpa and a 22 ACT. In varsity bowling and I am musically inclined with school choral group and im taking AP psychology.
AP psychology is a joke. No one will care about it unless your going to major in psychology.
That is not true and varies from school to school. Some schools take their classes more seriously than other schools.
It says I have an 87% chance of acceptance, I only have a 2.28 and a 25 ACT.... How can that be accurate? I'm happy about it but I'm pretty sure there is something wrong with the percentage I received.
I wouldn't rely on the percentage -- Parchment only takes into account the standardized test scores. Not sure if you wanted input, but a ~2.3 is quite a low GPA for admissions. Hopefully you may have something to back it up.
3.2 20 ACT, but so many extacurricular activies, and awesome essay.
3.2304 GPA and 28 on the ACT. In 2 clubs. Varsity tennis for 2 years, highest ranked choir for 2 years. Got a 4 on AP English exam; also taking AP Govt this year. What do you think my chances are, anyone?!
3.46 GPA and a 23 on ACT! Im in a bunch of clubs and i volunteer a lot! Do you think i will get in!?
Will being the first person in my family to earn a degree increase my chances?
I believe so, but I'm not positive.
I have a 24 on the ACT and a 3.722 G.P.A. I play Varsity Football and Swim, plus work year round
2.94 GPA and 28 on act. Good amount of volunteer hours. Decently active around the school. Pretty good story after refuging from war stricken country.
27 ACT and 3.158 gpa.. I got a 2 on AP Lit exam and AP Bio [I am also taking two more exams this year] and I have been in varsity band for 4 years and varsity bowling 1 year.
Do you think I have a good chance of getting in? Parchment says that it's 92% but I feel like my AP scores and gpa might affect my chances of actually getting accepted. Do you think I have a good chance?
Your AP scores won't be figured into the decision. I would actually suggest not sending a score report to MSU until you get your final exam scores back. I can tell you now that you will not get credit for the Lit or Bio classes with a 2. Since you have been in band and varsity bowling, you probably can get in if you write a kick-ass essay. It also depends on the strength of your schedule. If you took all of those AP classes instead of just the tests, I would give you and 80% chance.
Oh, I did take the classes and the exam. These exams were taken in May of this year. I do not expect to get college credit from them, but I chose to have them sent in before I took the exams. I plan on taking two more exams and am in the classes this year however but those exams will be after I apply early action. What do you mean by the strength of my schedule? Thanks a ton! :)
If you took a lot of Honors and AP classes then your GPA means more than someone who took all standard level classes. I would say that you have a good chance of getting into MSU since you have the exact average ACT and four AP classes. The varsity sports also increase your chances.
Thanks :) this actually makes me more confident while applying!
23 ACT and a 3.589 GPA with extras, and only a 76 percent chance..should I still apply?
the school has an average act and gpa which means they accpet students who are both higher and lower
go for it, the best case scenario is you get accepted, and if they say no, it wasn't meant to be
go for it!
i have a 27 on my act and 3.97 gpa and i have a 92% chance of getting into state
3.25 and 25 ACT.. it says 86% chance? Is this legit? If so I'm very excited..
The scatterplots tell all. Select your college and then click on scatterplots. After the scatterplot is displayed go to screening criteria and add a field for in-state, set the screen to greater than or equal to (this pops up as the default) then enter a value of one in the blank field. Note: before updating you may want to change the Y scale to ACT instead of SAT. Now click update.
Your profile will be displayed as a yellow dot. Other profiles are displayed as blue (accepted), green (accepted and attending) or red (rejected). Waitlist applicants are not displayed.
Regardless of the scatterplot display, you should get into MIchigan State with your gpa and ACT score. However, I suspect Parchment over estimated your chances at U Mich.
This just goes by your ACT/SAT scores it does not account your GPA or anything else.
yeah im freaking out too. hopefully Im accepted!
You should definitely check out the scatterplots. Less guestimation and more raw data.
I have a 2.96 and a 32 on my ACT... I have 98%
its pretty random bro
Yeah I have 2.8 and 24 ACT and it says 85% but I do have a lot of extracurricular stuff
I would say your chance is actually lower. Maybe more like 60-70%. But if you have extracurricular or varsity sports, that chancing could be accurate.
Im applying, and I can't wait to see if I get accepted. If so can't wait to meet all of the new Spartans!
Is it possible to be admitted to the Honors College with a 28 ACT score?
Yes it is possible at a presentation they said that there are some other factors that they weigh. Also, you can be invited sometime during your freshmen year.
can't you join later in your college career based on your college gpa?
I don't think you can join after your sophomore year. The Honors College has its own requirements and you also need to take the Honors options of certain classes. But if you've already completed it that's not possible.
You can get in during your freshman year if grades are high enough.
Does being a double legacy help my chances?
Yes. It would add a few points but being a legacy is most helpful when your parents are donars.
Where do I send recommendation letters if I'm applying online?
MSU doesn't require recommendation letters for freshman admission.
I know, but I'm sending one anyways because they do allow them.
My school counselor says MSU doesn't take the recommendation letters into consideration for acceptance, they pretty much don't read them.
It said I've got a 90% acceptance chance (two weeks ago) and now it says 1%? something has got to be wrong because It makes no sense..and Nothing has changed on my profile....Damn the internet..
i have a 8% chance to get in to MSU, but a 15% chance to get into michigan??? as much as i hate to admit it, michigan is much harder to get into, how do they calculate these chances??
UofM Ann Arbor or Dearborn? Dearborn is much easier to get into.
I can't major in denristry here??
The only dentistry schools are U of D and I think Michigan
Correction, the application fee is not $35, it's $50
What is up with the ratings for this place? I saw 3% accuracy of the algorithm? wtf
no interest in the school, just weird...
Michigan State is a great school. Love it here and hope to go here.
