I have heard they strongly rely on class rank for admissions. Any suggestions when you are in an ultra competitive school and are only in the top 29% with a 3.7 uw gpa? That was one of the questions he was asked in the Senate interviews. They asked why his class rank was so low with that gpa. He has a 32 on ACT, Eagle Scout, co-captain of swim team and some other good things on his resume. Some things that have hurt his rank was he got a B freshmen and sophomore years in honors English and they are not weighted classes when many of the kids ahead of him took regular English. I do think it helped his ACT score so there was some benefit. I also realize a 3.7 isn't that high, but just seems that many people on here have higher ranks with similar gpas. I just worry this is a weakness that is hard to do much about.
