    The fact of the matter is that the average accepted student to the University of Michigan had a 3.85 (unweighted) GPA and an average score of 31 on their ACT. Your course rigor looks excellent, but your GPA and your expected ACT are more than a bit concerning. This year nearly 47,000 applicants applied for a mere 6,000 spots, and U-M estimates that this number of applications is expected to increase even further over the next couple of years.

    Michigan considers your sophomore and junior years to be the most important in your entire high school career, so now's your chance to show them what you're capable of.

    @PastaBella, it's never good to talk about "guaranteed" chances, especially at a top institution like Michigan. I also think your assessment might be a bit too optimistic.

    Frankly, your GPA (if it is unweighted) is on the low side and will not guarantee you an offer unless you can get at least a 29 on your ACT. With a 26, you would only have a 50% chance if last year's accepted student statistics are any indication. Luckily, you still have two full years before applying to bring your scores up. The higher your grade point average, the lower your ACT will need to be. You can get away with a 26 ACT if you have a 3.8 unweighted, but not with a 3.67.
