Here's the story: I'm a rising senior from a highly ranked high school in Tennessee. I want to major in history/pre-law and I got interested in Colgate through my online college search. The problem is, there is absolutely no way I can get up there and visit until next April(if I get in). So, based on my stats and the other colleges I'm looking at do you think I should apply or that I even have a chance? THANKS!
