1500 SAT-800 SAT Verbal, 700 SAT Math
800 Spanish, U.S History, and Writing SAT IIs, 690 Math SAT II.
APs: U.S History (5), European History (5), Chemistry (4), Biology (4), Statistics and Probability (4), English Language and Literature (5), Art History (5), Spanish Literature (5), Spanish Language (5.) Straight honors throughout high school, and possibly the heaviest academic courseload ever achieved in the school.
ECs: Internships with Democratic Party, ACLU, and an Art Museum (Art Museum is the longest), some awards in painting, awards in essays in the humanities, Model UN, Debate, Political Science Club, Theater, Spanish Club, NHS, Spanish Honor Society, Published Poet and Short Story Writer, Wrote Two Novels and an Epic Poem, EIC Newspaper, EIC Literary Magazine, Lambda Activist, President of Ethical Awareness Club with focus on gay rights.
I have to note, though, some of these were kind of inconsistent. I did the Spanish Club three years out of four only and Model UN and Debate intermittently, but enough to get credit for all four years.
What do you think my chances are at Oberlin? Would they write me off as not a serious applicant, though I'm extremely interested in their creative writing program?

In my opinion.. you're in. Just show some enthusiasm in the app and essays.

-I don't know if this will factor in at all in assessing my grades, but my mom has been unemployed for a year, on top of which there was a death in the family, the combination of which made for a stressful junior year to say the least. :-( However, my grades have definitely rebounded, and this semester, I have a weighted 4.0
-I'm a very strong writer and will be able to get good recommendations.
If someone could let me know what you think my chances are, that would be great!!

Jblackboy, I would assume your chances would be very good, especially if you have strong recommendations.

how about a 1340 sat, 690 history, 650 writing (will retake) 4's on ap history/ap psy. a 3.55 uw and a 4.2w?
a part of human rights, fbla, environmental, and lots of volunteer work.
(being asian probably won't help me though)
|By Dave72 (Dave72) on Saturday, August 21, 2004 - 09:05 pm: Edit|
You're certainly in the ballpark. A lot will depend on your HS record and recommendations: the GPA is less important than the range of courses you've taken and what your teachers will say about you. Being Asian certainly won't hurt. Good luck!
