Chances of offer from Edinburgh: American StudentWatch
My stats are as follows:
GPA: 3.6 (low I know, math is a killer)
SAT: 800 Reading, 600 Math, 640 Writing (1400 on 1600 scale, 2040 on 2400 scale)
ACT: 31 Composite
APs: 4 on American History; I am taking the US Government and English Language tests in a few weeks. Next year I expect to take European History and Spanish Language.
Extra Curricular: Environmental Endeavors, Spanish Honor Society, Spanish Club, International Relations Club, violin (private lessons, orchestra, music festivals), tennis, softball, Mandarin Chinese lessons
I am wanting to study International Relations or Political Science. I have a global background and speak four languages. My guidance counselor has never had a student want to study in the UK before, so I am on my own when it comes to applying. I just would like to know if I have even a remote shot of being accepted to a uni overseas (even if it is just a conditional offer).
You should be alright. From what I understand they are more interested in your APs than your transcripts. Write an excellent statement of purpose highlighting your accomplishments, passions, and reason for choosing IR and you'll have a decent shot. Just remember, there are far more people who apply than get offers so do your very best!
Thanks for responding! And thank you for the advice and information, I'll work hard on my APs and making my PS amazing
