Chance Me for Bowdoin

purplehydroflaskpurplehydroflask 0 replies1 threads New Member
I reallyyyy want to go to Bowdoin, but I applied RD because of financial reasons.

I am a black female from North Carolina

I have a 4.0 GPA UW and a 4.66 W.
I am dual enrolled, so I take college classes instead of APs. I have taken 17 college classes. I am ranked 1 in my school and made the dean´s list of the college. I submitted my ACT which was a 30.

Yearbook Editor
Service Learning Ambassador President
Superintendent's Student Advisory Council Member
I started an education ministry at my church. I am the president of its college planning cohort, and I started an annual scholarship for the church.
National Conference for Community and Justice Ambassador
I have a part-time job (15 hours)

I went to Explore Bowdoin (the college's fly-in program) and had an interview during that time.

I think my essay is really good. It had the theme of social justice which I think fits because of my EC work with diversity and inclusion trainings.
My recs are good and positive

    I think you have a decent shot having already made the cut for Explore Bowdoin. It's impossible to predict beyond that.

    Here's a really big "well done" on all you have achieved in HS!!

    You can wait for your results knowing that you did all you can do from your end. Now you have to wait while the Bowdoin AdComm works out which ~1000 of the ~9000 applicants they will put together to build a class that will fit what they are looking for.

    But asking for chances at this point is just self-torture. So, go do something productive & distracting with your time. Pick a couple things that you can do no matter where you are & every time you start worrying do it!

    Good luck, congrats on what you have achieved, and come back & tell us about your outcomes!
