What are the odds that I can get into a school like Carelton or Macalester?
I'm in the tenth grade and still have quite a bit of time before college, but I am very serious about getting into a Prestigious school like Macalester or Carleton. I have a 3.85 GPA, I play tennis, participate in speech, volunteer, have a job. How likely is it I will be accepted and how do I improve my chances? Thanks!
From what you have mentioned it sounds like you are on the right track, but I do have one suggestion for you. Contact the both of the schools that you are interested in, and discuss with a counselor what other activities you can be doing to improve your chances of being admitted. The best thing you can do is contact the school, and show them that you really want to go there.
