Should I apply?
Answered

Hey, guys!

I plan to apply to Case Western Reserve University this year and am freaking out about my GPA (I'm not done yet, but I think it will be 3.0). The CWRU is my dream school, and I'm not sure I'm good enough for them... Do you guys think I should apply? Even though I don't have a good GPA and I haven't taken SAT?

My extracurricular activities, honors, etc. Are good. But I know it's not enough. I should be more confident, but I can't 😪.

There's never a reason not to. If it's your dream school, it's better to know you didn't get in than to regret your entire life not knowing. And who knows, maybe you can get in! If it's a financial issue, you could also get an app waiver.

Some people will say save your $70. Others will say go for it. It's up to you.

I'm sure you already looked at the Case Western Common Data set and realize that only 3% of admits have GPAs between 3.0 and 3.25 and that the middle SAT range is 1350-1490 right?

I certainly will not rain on your parade so it's all good whatever you decide. Good luck

With a 3.0 GPA it'll definitely be difficult. But for every college, it depends on who is reading your application and how it resonates with them (ECs and essays). I say apply... you won't know if you would get in or not until you do apply. There's also no supplemental essay, so apply to your dream school!

I'm also applying there btw (for BME) and great choice as it has a great student body with stellar academics!
