    Hi there!
    I just finished my Freshmen year of college with a GPA of 3.85. I am also a Army ROTC Cadet with what i believe is an extensive Extracurricular profile.

    I did poorly in high school with a 82.67 GPA out of 100 and SAT score of 1510 and never took the ACT. However as a 19 year old I am Cisco Certified IT Technician (People graduate college to get these), I was an Officer for SkillsUSA, Committee Chair of Model UN where i won two awards for best paper including one being at a UN hosted conference, I played Varsity Volleyball, I did an Internship as a IT technician at Bank of America for an entire summer my junior year of high school, 8 months of internship experience at a non profit where i did some admin work as well. I have some voluntary political campaigning experience. Oh and i was part of the National Technical Honor Society and did IT troubleshooting for my high school and my Principle speaks highly of me. I still go back my high school to do advising and mentoring for our Model UN program. Did i mention i met the Russian Delegation?
    I am hoping that admissions will look at who i am now with excellent grades and extracurricular rather than my past high school grades. Other than ROTC, everything else i mentioned i did in high school. I hope this proves that i am ambitions and mentally strong. What are my chances? anyone please and thank you!

    They will definitely look at your improvements favorably and while none of us can tell you what your chances are, I would say that you have better chances academically this year than last year (although you could have gotten into NAPS, I don't know ). You should definitely retake the SAT
