Hi! I’m a rising senior in high school and throughout my college research process I have found Vassar and Grinnell to be high on my list. However, both schools are competitive in terms of applications, so I was wondering if anyone has any insight into my chances at getting accepted. Thanks in advance!
Weighted GPA: 4.41
Unweighted GPA: 3.78
Both of these are on an upward curve, with straight As junior year but worse grades freshman year, with some improvement sophomore year
APs: Human Geo (5), Computer Science Principles (5), Literature (4), World History (5), US History (probably 5), Lang (hopefully 5), BC Calc (who knows? maybe a 5? probably a 4), Physics A (probably 5),
APs senior year: AP Euro, AP Stats, AP French, AP Physics C, and potentially AP CS A
ECs: 9ish years piano, 8 years karate (black belt, 2 time national competitor), 2 years volunteer karate instructor, Scholastic Bowl starter (2 years) + captain (1 year), planned peer tutor senior year, planned marathon senior year (hopefully going to get both done in the early fall), NHS
Not entirely sure all of those are valid extracurriculars, but the more the merrier!
Other: I am a guy, which I’ve heard could help in Vassar admissions. Not super sure.
Thanks so much in advance! If you need any more information just ask!
