    My daughter graduated from Bentley, and my son is there now. I think you have a good chance. My son had a 31 ACT and similar stats. Express interest. The interview was a great start. Just keep your name out there. First they'll do early decision, so once that's done reach out to your area representative. Ask a few questions. Visit again, is possible. It's a stressful time and Bentley is becoming more selective. I hope you get in. It's a wonderful school and really sets you up to succeed. Best of luck!

    My son had similar stats last year and got in. He ended up choosing Bryant for financial reasons as we could not get the math to work. It was just too expensive. It is a great school and if you can get the money to work it would be a good choice.

    Best of luck.
