Not sure if I will apply ED I or ED II but I'm almost certain CMC is the school for me. I want to major in Poly Sci and I really like the PPE and EEP programs. Plus I love the focus on Leadership throughout the school.

    Hey rayduz, I always temper any remarks I may make regarding these types of posts, since I am no expert and certainly don't know what is going through the minds of the people in the admissions office. Having said that, I would say you certainly have a good chance of getting admitted to CMC. I like the fact that you are familiar with CMC (Dad graduated CMC) and will be able to tell them why you're a good fit for the school. I would say you would be an excellent candidate for ED.
