Well this thread is another chances thread. But My own dilemma is a serious one. My stats will show.
Firstly I am an International student. So look at my chances from that perspective.

SAT 2: Yet to take but expect a 700 on each section
Recommendations I expect to be good
Transcripts well okay

Don’t have much opportunities in Nigeria

I also need a lot of financial aid.

    While I do wish you success and luck with the application process, I want to remind you that Colby's international application pool is competitive especially if one need lots of financial aid, as you and I do.

    I advice you retake the SAT and liven your ECs up a bit before considering to apply.
