    Please let me know if the admissions board might find this student scholastically qualified?:shake:(hint)

    SAT Math 620 Verbal 660 writing 650

    GPA 3.6 class rank 37 out of 271 (12%)

    Classes include:
    math; alg 1, geometry and alg 2. This student started AP calculus at beginning of Sr. year but did not have the background necessary to be successful (no trig), so will be taking pre-cal Trig at community college in the Spring.
    Science: Physical Science, Biology (honors), Chemistry (honors) and Physics
    English: GT English (freshman and sophmore), AP English (Junior and Senior)
    History: US history (honors), world history (honors), government (honors), Hawaiian History (honors) and pyschology

    IMO - the lack of calculus and lack of preparation for calculus may hurt.
    Algebra II didn't include trig? that is surprising.

    I thought I read somewhere that a strong algebra background was more important to an exposure to calculus, but that's only for your personal preparation - it's still looks good to have taken calculus.
