    omg. can someone please just chance me quickly? i am currently hyperventilating about Barnard and cannot wait, because I have a feeling I am rejected.

    I have a 29 ACT (higher scores on english and reading, lower on math and science...I plan on majoring in English)
    My GPA is a 3.5 UW, but I have taken an advanced courseload, complete with 10 AP's total by the time I graduate.
    My transcript is filled with A's in advanced English classes, but I've tried to maintain a balanced curriculum (similar to Barnard's view, 9 Ways, mentioned on my Why Barnard, because I don't know what I want to do exactly) which is why my Physics and AP Calc grades are lower (B's and B+'s). I have gotten A+'s in all my art classes, and am taking AP Art now, I have submitted a portfolio.
    I have tons of EC's and I'm pretty sure at least one rec is amazing, the other is probably okay. My Commonapp essay I wrote about how I volunteer at an animal shelter, kinda cheesy but very genuine. My teachers said my supplements were strong, but you never know.
    Do I have any chance?

    I also had an interview which went extremely well, and visited and toured.

    Collegebound1260, of course you have a chance. I cannot tell you if it's a good chance or a slim one (and neither can anyone else here, really). And you only have a few days to wait to find out….hang in there.

    Best to all you wonderful ladies!

    ahhhhh I can hardly take it! Barnard is the only college I want to go to. I actually don't know what I'm going to do if I don't get in. I daydream about it in class and I have dreams about it every night. I think I'm in love. And I cannot believe we're finding out tomorrow night, that is insane. I feel like I went down on one knee and offered a marriage proposal and now I'm waiting for them to accept, its nerve-wrecking.
