    I would say your chances of getting in are really pretty good. You're from California, and they'll like that. You have some unique classes and good extra curriculars, plus you worked in polling which signifies that you're involved in the political process, which is most likely a plus for Grinnell.

    I applied to Grinnell, too (with somewhat similar stats) but I haven't heard back. Good luck to you!

    Thanks man, and good luck to you as well!

    I submitted everything maybe thirty minutes ago - I shouldn't hear back for a few months.
