<p>Has anyone with an average GPA gotten into one of the elites?
Average GPA, meaning 3.5-3.6 unweighted..
Elite meaning the top colleges with less than 15% admit rate...
And of course excluding the legacies, exceptional athletes/musicians/artists, or the super rich.</p>
<p>If so, what was it that made up for the low GPA? High SAT I and SAT II scores? Extremely rigorous curriculum? Essays? Thanks</p>
