No, not necessarily. Many colleges have special provisions and waivers for students who were enrolled in college prep classes and can prove they have a learning disability.

The race card could be a factor in this admission.

GPA alone does not account for the total package in the admission process.

Family alumni and donations don't hurt your chances for admission either...
