Hello everyone! We found out today that my D21 is eligible for export at my home institution which we are celebrating with caution as we understand how hard it is to get imported into TE colleges and universities.
She’s applying to 14 schools in total (nine TEs as we are heeding the advice of posters on this board to cast a wide net). The only school on her list with an EA option was my home institution which she does not want to attend.
The schools on her list are:
Franklin and Marshall
We think she’s competitive: 35 ACT, straight As in rigorous high school courses (likely to get her first B in AP Spanish V this semester), lots of ECs (although not in activities that usually have identified leadership positions like theater arts, improv and voice), weighted GPA is 4.2 (but class rank is only in the top 15%), 7 total APs by the end of this year and one dual enrollment course.
My husband and I have pored through these TE threads for the last year and want to thank everyone who has contributed to the limited TE knowledge base. It still seems like a mystery as to who gets offered TE but we are hoping for a few offers for D21 to consider and appreciate all the effort that has been done to shed some light on TE.
D21 is our one and only so if you have any advice for me, I’m all ears! Good luck to all of you and your seniors!
