hey guys, i'm really interested in Fordham and i was wondering what type of merit you think i would receive..here are my stats. I am most likely applying early action. I intend to enter the Gabelli School of Business (Rose Hill).

Taken 5 APs(Euro - 4 sophomore year, the other 4 are jr year and yet to come back but expecting 4-5 on all), several honors, and only 2 regular classes through 3 years in high school and 8th grade advanced courses. Taking 4 APs senior year. Low GP UW but with a very rigorous schedule and an upward trend (did not work very hard until I realized I needed to get serious around middle of 10th grade)
