UNC Chapel Hill admissions chances?
UNC is my dream school, and while I think I probably have a good chance of getting in, I would like a better idea of what my chances are and where I need to improve. I am currently a Junior at one of the most competitive and challenging public high schools in Georgia, where I rank in the top 7% of my class (2014). I have taken 5 AP classes to date (World History (5), US History, Language and Composition, Chemistry, and Art History), and am taking 4 more my senior year (Biology, Spanish, Calculus AB, and Literature). Also, all of the other courses I've taken have been honors courses (excluding electives), and I have recieved straight A's other than 3-4 High B's in AP and Honors classes. Because I have a career goal of becoming a physical therapist, next year I will also be interning in the field. I am involved in our Elementary School mentoring Club, and am a National Honors Society member, while also volunteering in other ways throughout the community. Next year I will serve as co-president of our Chrisitian Service Club and am currently in the process of beginning a chapter of the international organization Right to Play. I have been on the varsity swim team all three years, and will run for captain this year as a senior. I also swim for an elite club team (top 3 in the nation) that requires 25+ hours each week of training and competition, and have been a part of the team for over 10 years. I additionally volunteer extensively with the team serving as a coaching assistant and working at meets. I plan to continue my swimmer career at the collegiate level, and compete for UNC Varsity swimming. I understand that being a UNC athlete can potentially help with admissions; however I am more interested in what my chances are leaving any possible assistance of this nature out of the equation. Thank you so much, I greatly appreciate your feedback!
