What are my chances of getting into Boston College?





Hello, I just wanted some opinions and thoughts on the chances of me getting accepted into Boston College! Please let me know if you think there is anything I can better myself in. I'll appreciate all replies!I am currently a Junior. Freshman year I took 2 standard classes and 3 honors classes (got all As). Sophomore year I took 5 honors classes (got 3 As and 2 89s). Junior year I am currently taking 2 AP courses and 3 honors (currently receiving As in all but one class). Senior year I am planning to take 4 AP courses and 1 honors class. On our school's 5.0 scale, I have a 4.4 GPA. I am number 11 in my class of 184 students (top 5%). Aside from grades, I am an active member of Student Council, National Honors Society, and Yearbook club. I am also the secretary of Academic Decathlon. I have been invited to (and joined) the National Society for High School Scholars. I have been a member of the school's Varsity Track & Field team for the past 3 years (and will be next year). I recently got my SAT scores (math - 720, writing - 600, critical reading - 530 :[ ) with total score of 1850. (I think with enough prep over the summer I can get that up to a 2000 or close to it at September's test date.)Outside of school, I have worked at a local supermarket for about a year. I have also held community service jobs at two local libraries and help out with the Art's Council's events over the summer. I have about 100 hours of community service. My mom is an alumni to the school and finally I'm planning to write an awesome essay! :)So if anyone who has any tips would like to give me some advice it would be greatly appreciated! This is basically my dream school. Thanks in advance.

    Hello!.. I think you are doing a great job! Wow…. I wish I were as active as you!..You have a excellent GPA, and being in the top 5% is fantastic. Your SAT scores is great… but… if you plan on retaking it, which I hope you do, the best part (I think) is that you can send the college your highest scores. You know what, go and give it a shot, and take the SAT again, and its okay if you do good or bad. I think it is math that you need to improve (I am terrible at math as well, so i know how that feels). Otherwise, if you take or do not take the SAT.. still go for it. Fill out that application because after reading your post… I have this great feeling that you will be accepted.here is something that i hope helps you that i found on their website… what they also look at:”In selecting students, the Committee on Admission looks for demonstrated evidence of academic ability, intellectual curiosity, strength of character, motivation, creativity, energy, and promise for personal growth and development. The Committee also carefully considers recommendations by counselors and teachers, the required personal statement and extracurricular activities. Requests for financial aid do not affect decisions on admission.”So, I wish you the best of luck in your college journey and ahead!..

    You have a shot – but not a great one – generally Boston College wants SAT scores a bit higher. I would apply but don’t count on anything.ThanksBill

    We want the unweighted GPA, the SAT reading score is too low, not a strong chance so far.
