159 / 3.86 - Any chance at Wisconsin?

Postby elizabethw1234 » Sat Jun 26, 2010 11:37 am

The June score results are in, and I have a 159 to show for it. I'm wondering if this leaves me any chance of getting in at my top choice, UW-Madison. What do you think? It looks like I'm on the low end of their range, but I'm wondering what experiences others have had. I'll probably retake the test in October...

A little more info
--I'm 5 years out of college
--Have a good GPA from a good university
--Have my master's degree in creative writing (I nailed that writing sample!)
--Have what I think has been an interesting career in publishing/online media since college

Are you in-state?

Their 25th percentile is 156, and median is 162, so you should have a shot with a 159 and a high GPA, especially if you're in-state.

Thanks for responding! I hope... I am somewhat concerned that I am not closer to the median score, which is why I am thinking of retaking.

I live in Illinois now, but I did graduate from a WI high school--I believe that means I can still qualify as a "resident" in the UW system. Am curious about the impact of being in or out of state...
