    congratulation guys. at least you guys have a reasonably good academic performance, and a chance applying for early decision.

    Grinnell is my dream school but for me, i just need to try and wait for the rejection offer. last time i check, there're only 5 students accepted from 60 candidates for transfering students. No matter what, i tried, the past cannot be changed. i have to admit that, at least you guys know how to prepare for the admission tests, for me, my city, no one even knows what SAT or ACT is. anyway, i am really jeslous of you guys at least you have the possibility of being accepted.

    best wishes to whom apply Grinnell College.

    hey cby1990! infact, i also didn't know how to prepare for the college admissions until a year back...and, you must be assured that even if you cannot give the tests, you can let the admission committee know about it! and, it is not only the academics that affect your chance for admission (i admit that it is the major factor)...but if you can share your unique personality then the committee may consider your chances! good luck buddy...

    I love the suspense! I (a parent) am very impressed with all of you. You are a credit to your families and your countries because of your hard work and strong attitudes. I think you will do well in life. No, I do not know where you will be accepted -- but I do think any campus will be stronger for your presence. Good luck!
