Question: im only a sophomore, so I have no SAT OR ACT scores yet. I did horrible on the PSAT, but I'm going to work on it. GPA- 4.0 weighted 3.4-unweighted 175 community service hours Extra curricular Danced for 13 years (Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Modern) Tennis for 7 years Golf for 13 years- won championships top 17% of class 6 honors classes so far and 3 AP, possible might have a AA degree I'm taking online classes over the summer, so my gpa should go up. ADVICE: I also will have a private tutor for the SAT, he is really expensive. But 4 of his student's got perfect scores. Do you think its worth it? especially since I'm not a good test taker. I really need a scholarship too, and possibly will Only go for 2 years since I'm doing this college academy thing. I might be able to get one for tennis or golf,even dance but the problem is I do all this stuff out of school. Can I still get one ? THANK you so much :)) this would really help:)

ok so i got in this year, and i will hopefully be attending but this is what i did. i hired an SAT tutor and got a 1340 that didn't get me scholarship, but i do know people who got scholarships with a 1390+ so aim for that. golf scholarships, i am a golfer and the last girl who i know got in on a golf scholarship shot low 70's and high 60's consistently and i mean every round. the fact that you don't play on a team may hurt, though if your school has a team try and join. if they don't then when you (or your private coach if you have one) call the coach (because you have to to get them interested) explain that your school doesn't have a team or whatever your situation is this year. i don't know about tennis or dance ( i don't know that they give dance scholarships or if they have a team). don't mention the 2 year thing though because the coach may be less inclined to take you as they'll only have you for 2 years instead of 4, you can mention it later when your sure that the coach is interested in having you as a player. your grades should be a's with maybe a few b's but nothing below a high b. just keep your grades up and get a good SAT score and just make sure your essay is incredible. i worked on my essay and then had both parents look at it (my dad's an english major) then i paid my SAT tutor who looked at it. just make sure it sounds like you and that it has a story but also a higher meaning like something you learned and has made you better. on the matter of hiring an SAT tutor i recommend it but to be sure you could take the SAT now and see how you do and whether or not you need one. good luck. its a great school.

You should be easily able to get into all 3. I don't like the area the Miami is located. I would pursue the other two a bit more.

Your GPA is very impressive, and your extracurriculars are very good. I don't think you should have any problem getting into all three, just be aware that sometimes you can be rejected just because your application was read in the afternoon and not the morning (crazy right?) but I wouldn't worry too much I guarantee you'll at least get into U. Miami and Florida

Hi, I'm concerned that you"re already in Alcoholics Anonymous but perhaps you can use that as inspiring material for your college admissions essay. UMiami is a competitive college, and you need to win some national awards to boost your application. If you're black or came from Mexico, you might get affirmative action, especially if you live in the Projects or you were raped as a child hence, material for an inspiring essay. Make sure you **** one of your teachers to get a good recommendation. I don't think you need a private tutor for the SAT, you just need to give your proctor on the day of the test head. And eat his poop.

Applying early decision definitely helps, as it shows your commitment. I'd try to get the test score up a bit. Everything else looks great besides that. You can look more into Miami at: http://www.howtogetin.com/colleges/miami... You can look at admissions factors, programs offered, and student reviews.

NO, not for sure. Nothing is ever for sure, unless you had a 4.0 etc. But, it looks pretty good with a 3.5. Just know that youll still need to score moderately well on the act or sat. A lower score would possibly throw that to a low chance, and a high score of course would put you in a looking very good category. Just study for the test, even an hour a week until it comes closer to the summer (if your a junior now) then pick up the studying and you will be fine. Good luck!
