Hi, I’m a rising senior about to apply to college, I’d appreciate some chance mes. I’ve got better EC than academics IMO so I don’t really know what to expect. My dad won’t really let me do safety schools so I know the list seems a bit cocky. I do have a couple low grades and AP scores and I want to know how worried I should really be.

I’d appreciate any guidance, even if it is just being humbled.
