Hey! I’m a prospective Hillsdale student, and worried sick about my chances of acceptance to Hillsdale. It’s most definitely my dream school; I love the conservative atmosphere and intellectual tradition. I would be a major in polysci and go on to law.
I submitted my application about a week ago:
Test scores: CLT, 37/37/26 for a total of 100, equivalent to a 1460 SAT
GPA: 3.95 unweighted
EC’s: Probably average or slightly below average. Model US/Model UN, member of a respectable Honor Society, 20-30 hour a week medium skill job (checker at a grocery store), plus political pro-life volunteering.
Essays: Average or slightly above average.
Letters: Solidly above average, but not exceptional.
Coursework: Only three years, as I am graduating high school a year early. 3 years worth of math up to Al.2, 4 years worth of English, 4 years worth of science (doubling up on Physics and Chem this year), 3 years religion, 3 years history, other miscellaneous classes culminating in around 21.5 credits at time of application.
Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
