Chance a Peabody Applicant With an Unique Situation?

<p>Hey all, I'm an applicant for Peabody's Child Development (or Child Studies) major. I'm interested primarily in becoming an adolescent psychologist for teens with substance abuse. This interest derives from the four months I spent in an inpatient substance abuse treatment center at age 15. I wrote about this in an essay sent to the school.</p>

<p>Some Stats:</p>

<p>-ACT: 34 Composite
-GPA: B+/A- range (low because of the 4 months missed sophomore year)
-Rigor: 6 AP's in a variety of subjects (7 if one was to count Macro and Micro separately.)
-Extracurriculars: Many relating to my prospective major, but well-rounded at the same time.</p>

<p>Let me know what you think my chances might be, and I'll chance you back.</p>

<p>Also, I forgot to include any background information. Im a white male from central NY. I go to a small private school that does not calculate GPA or class rank. Our non-AP courses are considered honors level. It is only independent school in our area, and we regularly send many members of each 60 person class to top schools.</p>
