<p>He seems to be a shoo-in at all of these schools. Great standardized test scores, amazing GPA, and solid volunteering. Tell him not to worry about his scheduling. You don't have to take every AP offered in your school to come off as impressive- colleges just want to see that you somewhat challenged yourself throughout high school in your areas of interest. His resume definitely offers this- 6 AP exams are more than enough.</p>

<p>FINALLY someone on these boards that uses it correctly. I keep seeing "shoe-in" around these parts and it's ridiculous...</p>

<p>haha cool. I know what you mean- I know a lot of people who misspell and it drives me crazy. Anyway, good luck to you and your friend!</p>

<p>Are you guys serious? It's a very rigorous or could even be a rigorous schedule. I thought Tufts and W&L want most rigorous schedule.</p>

<p>bump.........................</p>

<p>Tufts is a crapshoot, Wash & Lee is iffy but he's probably okay, Hamilton is virtually certain, the rest are certain.</p>
