What are my chances at Kenyon?
I posted this at a different forum but I'm not sure if anybody saw it.
Kenyon College is my dream school, but I also love Whitman College. I would be one happy camper at either of these institutions. I apply this fall, and with only a few months left before I send in my applications, I want to know if there is anything I can still do to up my chances or at least leave me feeling.I did everything I could. Your feedback would be much appreciated!
I go to a public school but I am in an extremely rigorous humanities program and try and take the other challenging classes offered.

Junior year I also took a night class at the local city college for one semester in Spanish, in which i received an A. I also took a city college morning class for two semesters in English Composition, and received an A for both semesters.
This summer I am in a Microeconomics class at the local city college and am confident that I will get an A.

These are my dream schools. I plan on applying to Kenyon Early Decision, and if I get rejected, I plan to apply to Whitman Early Decision II. Any thoughts you could share with my would be so helpful. If there is anything I can do still, please tell me honestly. Do I have a chance?
Thankyou so much for your time.
