    I am a college freshman applicant, going to a big state university. I wanted to know if I was competitive because, as I took AP Calculus and AP science in high school, I didn't have to take any of that in college; is that a disadvantage?
    I got a 3.86 my first semester, graduated high school with a 4.23, got a 2100 on my SAT.
    CFA-
    75 pushups
    93 situps
    6:10 mile
    17 pull ups
    bball-99 feet
    shuttle-8.5
    Just wanted to know how I stacked up, and how not taking science/math courses affects my chances.
    Thanks

    Short story: Three years ago the KP Admissions Office sent me a young man who had a BA in Management from a college in CO. He was sent to NMMI for an additional prep year because he didn't have the math and science classes he needed at the USMMA.

    My advice: Take Calc-based Physics, Chemistry, and two semesters of Calculus. Your application will look much stronger.

    Good luck!:smile:
