All right well I have a bit of a dilemma regarding my college search. I am from Pennsylvania, and I am going to be a senior this year. My high school career has been adequate, but compared to other people not great. A major reason for this is due to fact that I have a disease called Crohn's Disease. I was out of school most of 6th and 7th grade and have had other less severe lapses during my high school career. Mentally and physically it was fairly difficult to convalesce grasp back my life again. This slowed my progress and also my school had this policy if you weren't in the honors track in your previous grades, you couldn't start out on an honors track in 9th grade. Plus I didn't know how much work I could actually do hence my courses weren't very challenging. Every year my schedule has been more challenging, though my sophomore year still only consisted of two honors courses. My unweighted GPA is 3.51 and my course load has been moderate/difficult. Including the courses that I am going to take in my senior, this is how my coursework looks: 2 out of 4 years I have taken honors/AP english(I am taking AP Comp this year) 3 out for 4 for Social Studies(AP US and AP Gov't, plus I got an 5 on the AP US exam with an A- in the class) 2 out of 4 for Math 2 out of 4 for Science(I am taking honors Physics and AP Bio in my senior year) 3 years of Spanish average of a B. To wrap this up, my extracurriculars aren't too great either (Tried to partake in many like my school's environmental club, Model UN, Winter Track, Cross Country, but transportation and getting sick hindered my ability to participate). I have contributed to science by helping out with many clinical studies for Crohn's, also I babysit my handicapped sister, and also I am planning to help out the Obama campaign. So my question is, how far can I shoot (I am mostly looking at small liberal arts colleges)?19 replies
