My D1 is a rising junior in a public art/magnet school in northern VA (DC burb). She plans to major in Japanese and art, so Earlham has been at the top of her list for some time. There aren't many liberal LAC's with top Japanese programs! She has some great EC's, but her GPA is at the lower range for Earlham. Any advice welcome on how to get accepted to Earlham! Oh, and we are visiting this summer. Stats:
3.1 GPA (5 C's on transcript from 7th grade through 10th, mixed with lots of A's and B's --typical "ADD transcript" which she does have).
5 AP's by application time
SAT II's will be in Japanese, and Biology (both her best subjects and she tests well, always above 85th Percentile/advanced prof.). Take more?
Lots of art awards, and nominated for Japanese governors school program by her school (she really excels in Japanese!), Girl Scouts awards, GSA, ultimate frisbee, summer programs/college credit in art, photography, Japanese, over 200 hours of community service (art center for two summers, food assistance center).
We are seriously considering applying ED. Any advice?
