Can I get into Bowdoin early decision?

<p>Thanks for taking the time to look at this, guys.</p>

<p>I really really loved Bowdoin, and I know that I want to apply early decision. According to Bowdoin, I will receive my notification of admission around December 31. Should I work really hard on applications for other schools just in case I don't get in? Or, should I relax and fill out a few. Basically, I'm asking how good of a chance do I have to get into Bowdoin.</p>

<p>OKAY, guys! I think that covers it...oh yes, Bowdoin does not require SATs. Therefore, I am not sending them...haha (nope I didn't get a 1600.)</p>

<p>What are my chances? Thanks again for looking over this!</p>

<p>Good -- especially if you're not asking for financial aid.</p>

<p>I'm not applying for financial aid. Thanks for your input!!! Anyone else???</p>

<p>Wait, why does it matter if I do/don't apply for financial aid? I thought they couldn't make decisions based on that. </p>

<p>Also, I have another question:</p>

<p>After graduating from St.Paul's, I received evaluations (not reccomendations--evaluations must mention goods and bads) Anyway, my teacher noted that I was very stiff while presenting formally. Also, my intern said something along these lines, "Although Katie's leadership tends to take on a slightly impetuous tone, she seperates this intensity for academic debate from her social life with her peers."</p>

<p>Number one: I've won two speech contests. Number two: does the word impetuous mean impulsive in a negative way?</p>

<p>Should I add this eval? It says tons of great things, but I'm just afraid about those other two. </p>

<p>Thanks, guys.</p>
