As of now, I have a 4.17 average GPA, got a 4.6 this 1st semester of my junior year (straight A's). I'm also getting my eagle scout very soon and was wondering how much it helps. I heard it helps a lot, but to what degree? My SAT scores come out pretty soon, I took the January test and I'm pretty sure I got around 2100, maybe a little lower or higher. I've done Football for 4 years and Varsity track for 2 along with being the President of a really active Red Cross Club.
I've heard of people in my situation get rejected, but others with their eagle were accepted. Does it help that much??
