CMC is everything I could dream of in a school. Because it is so unique, I'm having some difficulty finding safety schools. Unfortunately I do not have the grades to get into this wonderful institution. I am, however the type of student that has the perfect fit for CMC. I excel in classes, politically aware, and most importantly a very active leader/member of my school's drama program, show choir and CSF. I met with one of the adcoms at cmc and he said that my leadership skills are in the top 5% of applicants. Unfortunately my grades give a false representation of what kind of student I am. I took ambitious courses and am not the best test taker. My math classes really hurt my gpa. My sat scores are in the 1800-1900 range right now, mostly due to my test anxiety.
So my question is what school would I actually have a chance to get into? There are not many schools that are similar to CMC, so anything that posses similar qualities would work.
