    Hey guys, I just got in Saturday, and I can say proudly I am going to Saint A's. It went from my 4 th choice to 1st the last 6 months. I really love this place and hope to major in poly sci. I am also a "presidential scholar", and received $12,000 and got an honors invitation and am pretty sure I will accept that offer as well. Just to give you some insight, here are some stats: 3.45 ish GPA with a strong upward trend, 1210/1850 on SATs, have taken 2 AP courses and roughly 2-3 honors classes a year. I was also class treasurer, model un librarian, president of a choir, worked in numerous music choirs, worked in a couple of volunteer groups. I'm not trying to brag, but I feel so glad to be going to saint a's. Good luck! And if you have any questions just ask me.

    My D is currently a sophomore at St. A's and a presidential scholar and honors program. She loves it. She had her doubts at first (could have gone to Providence or Holy Cross) but the school won her over. Go for the honors program - the extra challenge of the honors classes adds to your education, plus there are a few perks - like first choice on many classes. BTW, St. A's is also known as St. B's - because the standard for receiving an A in classwork is very high.

    Laughed when I read your entry. I am a St. A's grad from a number of years ago, and we always affectionately referred to it as St. C's!!! Maybe they are getting a little easier on their grading scale!!

    Congrats Carly1229. Great aid too by the way. Do you know what you're going to major in? Hopingwaiting, thanks fo the post and I think it must have been one month. My guidance counselor sent in my transcript 1 month after i sent my app in. But I think it should be about a month. Anyone else definetly going? Because I' love to know some people before I get there. That intial phase of missing home is just something I dont want to go through, lol.

    I got in today too. I got the $15,000 presidential scholarship too! Idk if ill go there though. I have to hear back from my other schools. I am really scarred of the bell curve for grading lol.
