<p>So really, I’m railing against my grades; every other area’s definitely bowdoin-quality, if I do say so myself :p. </p>

<p>Could I?</p>

<p>definitely a chance! good luck!</p>

<p>What are your unweighted grades? SATS look good. DId you take SAT IIs? Also, your ECs don't leap out at me but if you told a good story with your essay/app, I think you'll be just fine! Good luck. Where do you stand with other schools?</p>

<p>From sounds of your name, I'm guessing that Bowdoin might not be your first

<p>It is, in fact. I mae this profile two years ago, when I thought that Brown was the place for independant thinkers and lovers of Joyce...then I visited.</p>

<p>I'm most intereseted in Bowdoin at this point, and have been since I did my round of visits this summer.</p>

<p>bowdoin's a good place for lovers of joyce. or so i found, as a joyce-lover myself. good luck! i think you have a good shot.</p>

<p>I'd think so. My son has also applied.</p>
