    I guess i am just worried about getting any financial aid. I am a junior from a very rural area of Northe Dakota.

    My stats are in the median of an average muhlenberg applicant

    ACT-30
    GPA - 3.55
    my class rank is only in the top 25% though, how much will this hurt my chances?
    My school only has two AP's, only offered to seniors, i will be taking only one of them. but i am taking an AP online this summer.

    EC's
    VP of student advisory for two years
    liason for key club
    close up
    track and field for 4 years
    cross - country 4 yeas (captain)
    teach sunday school to kids at local church
    co founded running club for young kids during the summer that has so far raised of $3500 for local running and biking trails
    interning at law firm this summer

    Muhlenberg is my dream school and i have been in contact with the school sense my sophmore year. I am working to pay for a plane ticket out to interview this fall. I will also be applying ED.

    Do you think i have a chance at any money? i will not be able to attend without major financial assistance.

    Any opinions would be appreciated.
