Here are my stats:
International Student
SAT 1: 2010 (CR: 680, Maths: 730, Writing: 600)
SAT 2: Math 1c 730, Physics 780, Chemistry 760)
GPA: 3.1 (my school does'nt have a ranking sysrem)
8 A's and 3 A's respectively in O-Levels and A-levels (think A-levels are equivalent of AP's)
Have decent ECAs.
The thing is I need a lot of aid and with my stats is it possible to get in?

    Your stats look very good-- I'd say you're golden, though stats don't always get people into Colby. As far as aid goes, Colby is very generous to people who demonstrate financial need. If it weren't for Colby's aid, I would never have been able to attend.

    I suggest checking out local scholarships, too.
