LA Colleges that consider "upward trajectory"?

My son had poor to luckluster grades his first two years at an intense NYC public high school (Stuyvesant). (Average was 85, but all over the place--a few Cs, others in the mid-90s; he would work hard when the course interested him, then blow off stuff like health and art that he found boring.) Combination of anxiety and idiocy. Junior year, average is in the 90s. SATs 780, 800. He's also a baseball pitcher, hoping to play college ball. His top-choice schools are Oberlin, Vassar, Wesleyan, Macalester. Most of those places probably accept kids who have straight As. But does anyone know if any of those are likely to accept a kid who started slow but got his act together?5 replies
