    It’s hard to truly predict especially since Bentley is getting more and more competitive. I think you have a good shot. My son was accepted last year with a 3.7 uw and 32 ACT. He had 6 AP’s total and several honors classes. Good amount of extra curriculars but nothing outrageous. Good luck!

    Thank you, I appreciate your input, it’s my top school. Did he end up attending?

    No he did not but it was a very hard choice for him. He is at Fairfield Univ. He wanted a school a little closer and they gave him more money. Good luck!

    I would be very surprised if you didn't get in. My oldest son got in (but had to start second semester) with a 3.5UW GPA, 1280 SAT and only 2 AP classes. Honestly, I would expect you will see some good merit money at schools less prestigious than Bentley if that interests you. Good Luck!

    My guess is you get in with$$$. They want female students, and you a qualified applicant!

    Hi, current Bentley Freshman here! I had similar stats and was accepted with money. You should also consider applying for the Women's Leadership Program.

    I have applied to the Women’s leadership program and I’m hoping for some good merit!
