Can i get into university of michigan?





im really nervous about applying for schools. i want to go to u of m but my parents keep making it seem like they dont think i will get in even though i have really good scores because they know how competitive it is.im a wealthy, white, suburban girl from michigan. my school is highly competitive and there will be a lot of good applicants applying to michigan from my class.ACT: 33 (english- 35, math- 33, reading- 31, science- 34, writing- 10)GPA: well it doesn't officially come out until the end of the year so im not positive but i'd say 3.87-3.9 unweighted, and weighted maybe a 4.2? EXTRA-CURRICULARS: water polo (4 years), marching and regular band (4 years), musical (3 years), youth group (3 years), community service club (4 years), national honors society, co-chair on the prom committee (3 years), work as a lifeguard in the summer (2 years), and i will be attending a business program this summer for a week at brown.im slightly worried about my letters of recommendation. michigan is highly selective so they look at the letters and essays a lot. im not very close with any of my teachers or my counselor just because im not the kind of person who finds it normal to talk to my teachers like friends. i do well in class, sometimes get in trouble for talking to my friends or using my phone, but in harder subjects i usually try to come in once in a while for extra help. i still am nervous about this.So yeah my mom is really unsure about me getting in and she knows a lot about colleges. i want some other opinions please because im really nervous. what do you guys honestly think?

    You should be fine. Your ACT scores alone almost get you in. The consistency in your extracurriculars helps, too. When I was applying to schools, Michigan didn’t do weighted GPA, but yours is still very high. Make sure your essays are awesome and find a teacher or coach you’re close with to do the recommendation–have you talked to your water polo coach or band director? Things have become more competitive in the 6 years since I started college, but you’re more qualified than I was for U of M and I still got in.As a general note, though, make sure you’re going to a school that’s good for what you want to study, not just because it’s prestigious. Even though I got in to Michigan, I went elsewhere and it was better for me in the long run.
