My daughter (a junior) recently visited Clark and really fell in love with it. However, her GPA is on the low side for Clark. She currently has around a 3.1 in all grade-level course. Her GPA would be higher if 9th grade grades were factored in, and she is getting all As and Bs this year. However, she had a rough time in two classes in 10th grade, and that is dragging her down. We are hoping her GPA will be closer to a 3.3 by year’s end.
Our daughter is very involved in outside activities and paid/volunteer work, and she has a warm, outgoing personality. We think that applying ED would help her chances at Clark, but we are very nervous about losing access to financial assistance by doing this. Any thoughts from others who have been through the process with Clark?
