Hi! I was just wondering if I had good chances at.. any of these schools O-o Basically, I'm looking at Vassar, Connecticut College, Kenyon, Denison, and then there are a few more but I don't really care as much about them.
Right now, my ACT score is like 27 but it's so unbalanced so I just took it again. I got like 33 and 30 on English and Reading and the science and math.......well yeah. Also, my gpa is 3.7, I'm taking 3 ap classes right now (English, Gov, French), and I don't have that many extracurriculars--just track and community service. I'm also in NHS. Is that enough info? Thanks in advance guys!

Hmm another "I don't like math and science :(" person..

If that GPA is unweighted and you write a good essay I think you can get into Kenyon, but not Vassar, if it is weighted.. I'm not sure you could get into either.

I disagree.

A person just responded to my thread (in which Vassar was included) and they got into Vassar with a 3.4... not sure about the weighted/unweighted, but even if it was unweighted, that's not too high. Besides, a 3.7 is not shabby at all. I still think you have a great shot if you up those ACT (or SAT) scores. Kenyon should be well within your reach. Good luck!
