<p>Hi, just wondering my chances, I applied to Barnard ED.</p>

SAT IIs- Writing (730), Math IC (720), French (700)
Gpa- around 3.8, I'm not sure how my school does gpa
My school does not rank</p>

<p>I go to a dual program school, it's kind of like the movie Fame, so we do both our majors and acadmics during the day. Btw, I am a dance major.</p>

<p>I have been in every honors class I could be in. I was in accelerated english, and came into high school being 2 years ahead in math.</p>

<p>Junior Year-
AP Calculus
AP French
AP U.S. History (2 year course)
Honors English</p>

<p>Senior Year-
AP Lit
AP Pyschology
AP U.S. History
AP Statistics</p>

-I have been seriously dancing since I was in the 5th grade in a prestigious Manhattan dance school. I am there every day until 7:30-8, therefore not leaving much other time for ecs.
-I am the Editor of the Dance Department Newsletter
-I am a dance editor of our yearbook
-I have also been a member of the national honors society
-For each summer during high school, I have attended different 5-6 week dance intensives, requiring auditions.
- Last summer, I was an intern at a chiropractic office</p>

-I have good recs from my AP french teacher and honors english teacher
-I ahve a rec from a Barnard alum who has known me for 5 years
-A rec from the office in which I interned this summer
-Excellent essay</p>

<p>Also, my school does not give out awards, other than senior awards which are given out at the end of the year. Last year, Barnard accepted 10-12 girls from my school, through regular and ED. This year, I am the only student applying early. Thanks so much!</p>

<p>I'd say you have a very good shot; your SAT scores are 20 pts over the median. You also show passion for an EC. The only thing that might hurt a bit is your gpa; their average is like .1 higher, but it's not a big deal. Since their yield is pretty low, by showing that you want to go there with ED, you have about a 70% chance. I'm also applying (RD), and i'm going to NY for an interview tomorrow. have you had one yet? good luck with everything! :)</p>

<p>I had my interview this past Tuesday. I was hoping to have one with a senior, but I had mine with an admissions officer. Unlike other interviews where I felt they were selling the school as much as I was selling myself, in this case, I was completely selling myself. The only info the interviewer had was my academic interests and my ecs. She went through everything basically say, "so, tell me about _____" Then she asked me some strange questions, like what it was like to be a teenager in nyc. Otherwise, it was pretty straight forward, I wouldn't stress too much. Good luck!</p>

<p>so did you bring the resume that you sent with your app or is it like swarthmore where you fill out an ec info sheet when you get there?</p>

<p>I didn't bring anything with me</p>

<p>Sounds like an in to me!</p>
