    I'm definently average on this board anyway.
    GPA : 3.7ish
    SAT didn't use it. In your face SAT!
    ACT: 27
    SATIIs I forget..
    Rank 1: school does not rank
    ECs: track, nothing important, newspaper at college.
    Course load (relative to offerings of your HS): in HS, I graduated with 5 Aps and the rest of my classes were honors with a few random academics. In college, I have a 3.4 gpa with Bs in my non-major classes and As in my major classes.
    Private/Public school: HS was public and well known
    State or country: PA, USA
    If applicable:

    Colleges you recieved admission too: I'm currently attending Kenyon with scholarship. I've applied to NYU for transfer however. Admissions decision still pending.

    Thanks Katie. I didnt mean to be controversial, but I wanted somehow to gauge the quality of schools that CCers are accepted to w/o having to say only USNews top 10 or something. I know it's not perfect, nothing is, but arguing about quality schools is not the point here.

    GPA unweighted: whatever 95% is... (yay Canadian system!)
    SAT: haven't taken... PSAT predicts around a 2200
    ACT: same
    SATIIs: again, haven't taken. I'm going to take Biology, Math IIC, and French (I've been in Immersion for 12 years, that should do it).
    Rank: As in GPA,probably top 10 out of 650. As in overall... well... I recieved the award for best overall grade 11 student this year, which includes grades, EC's and a teacher nomination (so I guess that counts for something)
    ECs: 8.5 Sure not much research/math/science... but that's not me. I have tons of me stuff.... i.e. loads of music, field hockey, MUN.
    Course load (relative to offerings of your HS): 10 for sure. I'm one of 20 full french IB diploma students in my class of 650.
    Work and/or Volunteering: 4.5... sure I don't work, but school is my work. I do volunteer some though (not enough, but with everything else, it balances it out nicely)
    Private/Public school: Public
    State or country: Canada (AB)
    Top colleges you applied to, especially Ivies: haven't applied yet, but I'm going for McGill, UBC, Dalhousie (/King's FYP), U Vic, Queen's, Harvard, Oxbridge (one or the other)
    Colleges you recieved admission too: n/a

    Um, no offense guys, but aren't you overdoing the amount of significant digits you include? After all, an SAT subscore tends to vary by about 20-30 points either way...
