Apply to the school you want to go to. Don't try and backdoor it because you might just end up regretting it.

Well do I have a shot at either?
|By Regulus (Regulus) on Monday, August 30, 2004 - 05:51 pm: Edit|
Yeah, you have a good shot at both. As long as you have good essays and good recs you'll be in good shape.

If you have good essays and recs. BTW, a good essay isn't about how tough it was to be in swim or something like that, it has to be meaningful and reveal something about you not shown in the rest of your application. Get recs from teachers that know you in and out of the classroom, my lang/comp ap teacher happened to also be my Forensics (Speech and Debate) coach. You need to use your essays and recs to make up for your many B's. I think if you like Wharton you should apply to Wharton. If you like the college of arts and sciences apply to the college of arts and sciences. Regulus put it best in his post.
