    well, i would say your chances are pretty good, as your GPA and SAT scores are in line with wesleyan's usual students. however from what i've heard, wesleyan's kind of a crapshoot. you have to shine with a special sort of quality, show interest in something in particular, etc.

    make sure your application has something to make it stand out. wesleyan doesn't even offer a supplement so this will be harder.

    best of luck to you, i'm applying ED II. :)

    The supplement is purely informational - no essays or anything of the sort...
