Does anyone think they'd be willing to chance me for Swarthmore, Georgetown, and Dartmouth? I'm a rising Senior and am trying to finalize my college list. I'm trying to get into consulting or investment banking and want a school that places well in those or places well into MBA programs. Also, could you give me other college suggestions given my fields of interest and all the information below? Thanks!

I'm being recruited by Swarthmore, but not by Dartmouth, where I will only get a letter of recommendation from the coach so I can walk on. I have not talked with the Georgetown coach so consider swimming a nonfactor. Thanks!

    For a rough first approximation, look up the Common Data Set of each school to compare your stats to those of the last entering freshman class.

    I match well at both. I'm not sure about my extracurriculars and how my class rank play a role.

    If you haven't talked to the Georgetown coach and would like to swim for them, and it's not too late to reach out according to the NCAA schedule, then do so. If he wants you, it can help with admissions. Likewise for Swarthmore. These things matter.
