So I am applying early decision to Boston College. I have a 4.38 GPA and a 1320 (660/660) SAT score (I'm not a good standardized test taker). I want to study English, History, or Philosophy, but I am not really sure yet. I have shadowed at Boston College and I have done the campus tour, and it is unequivocally my first choice. My extracurriculars and awards are...

- varsity cross country captain (very large and successful team)
- varsity indoor track
- varsity outdoor track
- chief editor of 2 school publications
- national honors society
- german honors society
- art honors society
- student ambassador
- student dialogue facilitator
- school poetry slam ambassador
- honor roll all through high school
- all honors courses but 2 throughout high school
- 4th place state level writing competition
- 1st place local competition
- biology club founding member
- 2 APs junior year (Psych: 5, Lang: 4)
- 3 APs senior year (Human Geo, Lit, Gov)

    Your grades are roughly above average, but the SAT is a bit below the curve. That puts you at about average. The acceptance rate is just under 30%, which is a high reach. Keep a list of some good target and safety schools.

    The 26.8 percent acceptance rate includes a lot of athletes, 10 percent international and other preference categories. It’s always a smaller range than students are led to believe.

    You have an excellent profile and tremendous athletics and ecs. Congrats.

    No one knows for sure but I would consider a “yes” to be a big win. You’re definately competitive.

    I would also apply to Holy Cross, Fordham and Villanova. Add Providence perhaps as a safety type to give you a good range.
