What good of a chance do I have getting into University of Michigan?

Question: I am in Junior Year (GPA - 3.94) right now and I have taken 1 AP last year, taking 3 AP's this year and will take 4 AP's next year. So, my GPA might go slightly down maybe to 3.85 3.89. I have also taken lots of honors and accelerated classes. After taking practice tests, I am aiming at getting a 2150-2200 on SAT and probably a 31-33 on ACT. I am the second best discus thrower in track and field and will most probably be captain of the track team by the end of next year (but sadly, I would have already applied by then). I am the captain of the JV quiz bowl team and am on Varsity Debate Team. I volunteer at a hospital every Saturday and will probably rack up 150-200 hours by my senior year when I begin to apply. Saying that I write an average essay, what are my chances to getting into University of Michigan and I'm just throwing it out there, maybe some Ivy leagues like Princeton or Harvard...? Also,if you could see some weak spots in what I have mentioned above,please do tell. Also, I am a member of National Honor Society. In addition, I live in Michigan, if that would help me in any way By the way, it is University of Michigan Ann Arbor

These would currently all be reach schools for your G.P.A. I would at least try for a 3.4-3.6 to get into U Michigan. Try and Get that G.P.A up next year, and tack on some honors and A.P courses that will make your weighted G.P.A go up. Temple is a good target school, so is Ohio state...UCLA almost impossible with anything less than a 3.8 if you don't live in California. Right now focus on your grades and extra curricular it will help. good luck with the SATs next year.

I doubt a 2.96 is going to get you into a major university without a kick butt SAT or ACT score. You're looking more towards your local Connecticut Community College. You have time to raise your grades. Hit the books!

No matter where you go, organic chemistry is a course that drives students insane. I have friends who are currently Chemistry PhD students who have horror stories about their undergrad organic classes. There's no promise that transferring to East Carolina or anywhere else will make your experience any easier. Moreover, employers don't really care about your GPA. Michigan is a much bigger name than East Carolina. While I almost never recommend the name of the university over the performance of the student, in this case I would advise sticking with Michigan. If you're not enjoying your coursework, you might be studying in the wrong subject. Even within the subject, you will find professors to be of varying quality. The key term is that they are professors, not teachers. You will find that everywhere. Also keep in mind that in-state and out of state tuition rates are significantly different. If you are not a resident, you could end up owing more at East Carolina than Michigan. Best of luck to you.
