    You definetly have a good shot at getting in! All of your experience and diversity in classes and extracirriculars is also really helpful in addition to your GPA.

    Your test scores could be higher for more scholarship opportunities, but they are strong enough to get in (the average for lasy year was a 1350 I think). Bentley is also really big on community service so I would make sure to include that as well.

    I would check the Class of 2022 page for more information on what scholarships you would get with your current stats. I saw some people with similar stats and scholarships ranging from 5k-15k. So extracirriculars and parts of your application outside the numbers really matter!

    This school is getting a lot more competitive which makes me really happy, but also more nervous about applying. Best of luck to you!

    Are you male or female? That makes a difference at this school.
