Hi everybody, im gonna be applying to college next year and my top choice right now is Colgate. I want to apply there ED but since you only get 1 ED, i dont want to end up using it on a school that i have no shot at. On top of that, there are some other good colleges that i want to apply to. Thats why i was wondering if you guys could tell me if i had a shot at making these colleges:

Colgate (ED)
Tufts (ED2)

I have a 90.5 avg in my school which translates to about a 3.7 GPA. I go to a very competitive high school: Stuyvesant high school in New York City, which is ranked 31 in nations best high schools. We dont have a class rank so i dont really know where i stand.

SAT: 2220 780 M 740 W 700 CR
SAT2: Math2: 720 Chemistry:700

Extracurriculars: Alot, most significant:
played club volleyball for 6 years, on school team for 3 years and captain 1 year,
worked and did community service all summer for 4 years of high school,
Part of 3 clubs in my school

Id really appreciate if you guys would tell me your opinion on whether or not i have a shot at these colleges

Thanks everybody

    a 90.5 is actually closer to a 3.6 than a 3.7.... but colgates admit rate is double for ed than regular, about 40-45% your sats are good so that will make up for your low gpa, u might want to consider rearranging what schools u do early for such (as tufts and vandy are harder to get into so u wont waste your ed shot)
