    I suggest you check out the Naviance statistics for your school to see how historically your grades match up with prior classes. Your guidance counselor might be able to give a good idea of where you stand as well. You seem to have taken a fairly rigorous schedule and have good EC's. Do you have any other hooks? Have either of your parents attended? Is either the golf or swimming coach at Gettysburg interested? Best of luck to you!

    I replied on your Conn College thread also. While I don't think you have a good shot at Conn, I think you are a contender at Gettysburg. Try to finish out junior yr with strong grades and make sure you keep them up senior year. While I thought your rigor was lacking for Conn, it may be okay for G, but if you can take another year of language or another honors class or AP in senior yr, of course that is better.

    I think Conn is easier to get into than Gettysburg.
